Kaufman also served as executive in charge of locations for Saturday Night Feverand was influential in choosing Odyssey as the nightclub in the film. From toKaufman produced and directed a handful of adult films in New York under the pseudonym "Louis Su". InKaufman and his business partner Michael Herz founded Troma Entertainment and began producing and distributing independent action and comedy films.

In order to pay the bills, Kaufman did some freelance work for major Hollywood productions, including Rocky edited on Troma's flatbed machinesSaturday Night Feverand The Final Countdownwhich he also produced Kaufman has said that it was his experience on this film that made him never want to deal with a major studio again.

On most of these early films, Kaufman is credited as "Samuel Weil. InTroma experienced mainstream success with the violent, darkly comic superhero film The Toxic Avenger. Toxic went on to become Troma's most popular movie, inspiring two sequels, a fourth independent film sequel, a Saturday morning children's television showcomic books and tons of merchandise. The Toxic Avenger, or "Toxie," is now Troma's official mascot. Riding on the success of the Toxic AvengerNuke 'em inspired two sequels, a fourth independent film sequel, and a healthy run on late night cable shows such as USA Up All Night.

This was then followed by a younger fan asking the brothers what it was like working with one another on the film and how their family chemistry affected their performance on the project?

James reiterated that there is no one he trusts more than his brother and he cannot be more thankful that the two have such a great working relationship. James took this opportunity to launch into his original pitch to Marvel studios.

The first was a story written by Grant Morrison outside of Marvel called We3 involving a cat, a dog, and a rabbit trying to make their way home, who also happen to be locked into mech suits. The second was a film which James actually had originally pitched to Marvel Studios before being given Guardianstitled Hit Monkeya story of an assassin who happens to be a monkey in a business suit.

The next question asked was about female superheroes within the Marvel universe, whether or not James would be incorporating any of them, and whether he had plans to bring in Carol Danvers, the current Captain Marvel, into the roster.

While he agreed that more than likely, Carol Danvers would appear sooner rather than later in the Marvel movies, there were plenty of other women in the comic book roster of the Guardians of the Galaxy and he was more than excited to begin introducing them into future films. The plan, according to Gunn, is to introduce new female characters into the world of Guardians as soon as he could. It was about focusing on these less than pristine qualities of each of the characters before taking them on the journey that would find them in a different place.

After this, a fan asked if Lloyd Kaufmanhead of Troma Pictures, who made a cameo in the film and had helped James direct one of his first films, Tromeo and Julietwould be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Gunn told the fan that there was in fact a deleted scene for the film in which his mentor was brutally killed in the prison scene early on and more than likely, he would not be appearing in any sequels because of this fact. The next question was directed towards Sean Gunn, asking if the scenes he filmed as Rocket were replicated in post or if they were filmed from beginning to end.

Gunn then stated that the scenes themselves were filmed from beginning to end and reinforced the fact that he did not perform motion-capture, rather he provided motion reference for the character, which is a different system entirely. Gunn then provided some insight into the music of the film, stating that it had always been a part of the film and was even placed into the script prior to filming. Following this question, a fan asked about the changes to the character of Yondu, who is vastly different between the film version and the comic book version.

Gunn also stated that he planned to change other characters in a similar vein moving forward with sequels and spin-offs. The brothers were then asked what it was like trying to balance out the humor and seriousness of the film without coming across as campy. They stated that the lynchpin of this was Rocket Raccoon, who they believed to be the heart and soul of the film.

Bringing a character such as Rocket to life, and having him be taken seriously, was their test and they wanted to present the character with the idea of being a creation in the vein of Frankenstein and The Island of Dr. They stated that aside from being such a strange creature, Rocket was the loneliest creature in the universe and the scene early on in the film where Rocket was shown with his shirt off revealing the gruesome experimentations that had been done on him was the most important scene in the film to them.

This also led into a story about discussions Gunn had with Marvel, going more in-depth into which decisions he won and which he lost. Groot would then look at the exhibit aghast, to which Lee would flick off the large tree creature.
