One of the most anticipated parts about Infinity War is the amount of superhero team-ups we will see between the characters. While a lot of these team-ups have already been revealed in the trailers, like the teamwork of Iron Man, Bruce Banner, Doctor Strange and Wong, the full movie itself is sure to bring even more partnerships along with it.
Many fans have speculated on what team-ups they'd like to see the most. Lots of fans want to see a specific moment dedicated to the "Facial Hair Bros.," Tony Stark and Doctor Strange. Others have wanted to see Drax meet Spider-Man and have Drax wonder why he is called part-spider, part-man even though he is 100% a man. However, it looks like one particular moment that some fans have been craving will be coming to the big screen, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The climax of Infinity War, according to the directors, will take place in Wakanda, where almost all of the heroes will come together to stop Thanos and his army from retrieving the Mind Stone from Vision's head. From what we saw of the trailers, this monstrous team up will include the likes of Captain America, Black Panther, Hulk, the Hulkbuster, Falcon, and many more. According to the report, it also looks like Thor will be arriving in Wakanda just in time for the climactic final battle of the movie, and he will be bringing his two newest companions with him.
When Rocket and Groot arrive in Wakanda, they will indeed interact with some of the other characters. The most notable interaction for the talking space raccoon, however, will be with Bucky Barnes / White Wolf, formerly known as the Winter Soldier. Entertainment Weekly managed to at least see a little bit of the exchange between the characters, and they certainly liked what they saw:
"How much for the gun?" Rocket reportedly asks Bucky.
"It's not for sale," Bucky replies firmly.
"Okay, how much for the arm? The arm?" Rocket persists, anxiously eyeing Bucky's new arm designed by Shuri.
While this is all we have of the exchange, it is enough to make us extremely excited for the interaction between the two characters. Anyone who has seen the previous two Guardians of the Galaxy films knows that Rocket has a strange addiction to taking people's prosthetic body parts, be it the prisoner's leg in the first film, or the Ravager's eye in the second. It looks like this running joke will not end in Infinity War, when the raccoon mechanic will try to buy off what is possibly the most notable prosthetic limb in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thor and Bucky won't be the only other characters Rocket interacts with, apparently. According to actress Danai Gurira, her Wakandan character Okoye will have quite a bit of difficulty adapting to the talking raccoon. Considering how closed in Okoye has been for all of her life, Gurira says her character will struggle adapting to all of the changes and all of the different faces, and the presence of Rocket is just the cherry on top.
I know I am not alone in saying that I am extremely excited to see the culmination of heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. While both The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy are great teams on their own, seeing them team up and interact is essentially a dream come true, especially after hearing these reports. Fortunately, we don't have much longer to wait until Avengers: Infinity War finally hits theaters at the end of April. This story first appeared in Entertainment Weekly.
