Rocket is the secret protagonist of Guardians of the Galaxy and has always been the center of it for me; and that really achieves that.

It’s also the end of a trilogy. The first movie is about the mother, the second movie is about the father, and the third movie is about self. And that’s what this journey is about. …”
