First Clip Of Bradley Cooper As Rocket Raccoon In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY; Plus See Who James Gunn Had Stand In For Him On Set


guardians of the galaxy bannerEarlier this week the internet was set ablaze when Marvel finally revealed the first trailer for Guardians of The Galaxy. The long awaited debut for the five misfits that are banded together for a common interest didn’t disappoint fans or novice movie goers. One thing that was notable absence from the trailer was the fact that we didn’t hear Bradly Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

However, the wait may not be much longer. While chatting it up with the Pointless Pod podcast director James Gunn was asked when we might be able to hear Cooper’s take on the character. “They will be hearing Rocket speak in something very, very soon,” teased Gunn. Well that very soon turned out to be today as Marvel has released a new behind the scenes clip from the movie that features Cooper in all his Rocket Raccoon glory.

We know that his design was based off of a raccoon named Oreo, but was there an actual actor there help Pratt, Saldana and Bautista during filming? “My brother Sean Gunn wore a little green suit and he waddled around and he acted out Rocket,” revealed Gunn. “I think all of the guys will attest to the fact, and they have in all their interviews, that he was a great part of the team, and it really was Zoe, Dave, Chris, and Sean who sort of like created the energy that people will see in the movie between these four characters, who are usually at odds and sometimes find common ground. Sean was a big part of that energy and creating that, not only was a he doing a great job performing himself, but also gave the other actors something to work off of so they’re not working with a tennis ball.”

Another thing Gunn touched on was some rights issues that Marvel faces in regards to the alien races he can use in the film. Marvel has some rights to the Skrull, but apparently no all of them. “Marvel only partially owns Skrulls, and also for the record, we don’t own the Badoon either. So people were asking why we have the Sakaaran in the film, we don’t own the Badoon,” Gunn said. The Badoon isn’t that big of a shocker due to their ties to the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer. So odds are they belong to Fox.

I for one am really excited for what Bradly Cooper is bringing to the voice of Rocket Raccoon. You can check out the video that showcases the voice as well a touch of new footed out below. As usual, make sure to check it out here at Comic Book Therapy.
