Quotes from the news wire:
I just think it seems awful cynical that he would keep coming out against Marvel and then that is the only thing that would get him press for his movie, he's creating his movie in the shadow of the Marvel films, and so he uses that to get attention for something he wasn't getting as much attention as he wanted for it.
There are a lot of heartless, soulless, spectacle films out there that don't reflect what should be happening, i can't tell you the amount of times I've talked to film directors before they went and made a big movie, and said, 'Hey, we're in this together, let's do something different with these big movies. Let's make them something different than everything that has come before them.' And then see them cater to every single studio whim and be grossed out, frankly.
I'm learning the extent to which some people are just learning about some of the work I did as Rocket on the movie, which is not something that I really did for any kind of recognition, but people are starting to notice it and ask me questions about it, and I'm happy to answer what I can. It's been interesting how much it's made an impression on people.
I was hired for the first movie to sort of assist with Rocket so that we would find a way that the actors were dealing with a real actor, rather than a blank space, before they found a voice actor who was going to play the role. It just kind of evolved from there, i ended up being on set and we did a rehearsal, and I just got down on my hands and knees and started doing it from down there.
I think that the Marvel Cinematic Universe really felt like family to me and my brother really every step of the way, and sometimes things happen in families, but whatever. You move on and you kind of go from there, and I was never surprised by the love that I felt from particularly the' Guardians' castmates, but really everybody, and I'm excited to get back to work and go make another movie.
It’s not to say I ’m better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago ; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger. My days saying something just because it’s shocking and trying to get a reaction are over. i truly felt sorry and meant every word of my apologies.
