Today we saw what can be considered an information dump of Avengers: Infinity War goodies. We got covers featuring all our favorite heroes, little tidbits that revealed character motivations but most importantly we got a description of a scene between an unlikely duo.
The scene description, which comes to us via Entertainment Weekly, describes an interaction between Rocket Racoon and Bucky Barnes:
Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes, the former Winter Soldier now known to his Wakandan friends as “White Wolf,” is laying waste to Outriders while Rocket — in the form of Sean Gunn, wielding a puppet stand-in — distracts him with some offers he can easily refuse.
“How much for the gun?” the furry dealmaker asks, admiring the firepower clutched by Bucky’s mechanical limb.
“It’s not for sale.”
“Okay, how much for the arm? The arm?” Rocket persists. (He has a weird thing about prosthetics.)
This scene calls back to the iconic moment in Guardians of the Galaxy where the team is attempting to escape Kyln prison. Rocket requests that Peter Quill steal a prosthetic leg from another inmate, which turns into a hilarious moment. That comedic beat was followed up in Vol. 2 when Rocket has Baby Groot steal a prosthetic eye.
This moment will likely be one of many that will pit multiple characters that have interacted together in a battle of wits. Which characters are you excited to see meet for the first time in Avengers: Infinity War? Let us know in the comments below! -Jackson Hayes
