The Avengers Post-Credits Scene

This week marked big changes for Marvel Studios. Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter lost his power over the superhero studio that has grossed over $7 billion dollars in seven years, leaving Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to report to Disney Head Of Live-Action Movies Alan Horn. Perlmutter will retain oversight on Marvel Television, but the restructuring meant that Kevin Feige would have more control over budgets, casting, etc when it comes to everything Marvel Studios.

Seems to make sense for the obvious reasons, unless there is am actual Raccoon who can walk on two legs and has a cockney accent – assuming that is even the accent they want to go with. But HitFix (via CinemaBlend) has discovered that Rocket Raccoon won’t be done in mo-cap, but instead the character will be a blend of CGI, “rotomation,” and traditional animation.

This is welcoming news for those who have grown tired of seeing motion-capture techology used. Motion capture, or mo-cap, is known as the process of using technology to capture the movements of an actor.

By forgoing the mo-cap technology, Marvel is definitely pushing the envelope with Guardians of the Galaxy, so it should be interesting to see how they approach some of other characters’ appearances.
