Rocket Raccoon Casting Rumor Emerges


rocketSalt shakers at the ready? Alrighty then. Let’s dive into this latest Guardians of the Galaxy rumor. Latino Review‘s El Mayimbe has struck again in the dead of the night to drop another steaming hot scoop on the internet’s doorstep. He reckons he has James Gunn‘s choice for Rocket Raccoon figured out. We know that Marvel are looking for A-list talent for the loveable little raccoon, but that may have been misinterpreted statement. They could be going after A-Team talent.

According to Mayimbe, Gunn is gunning for Bradley Cooper. “Trusted sources in England” are saying that Marvel made the actor’s reps an offer. The Academy Award nominated actor may not accept the offer, but supposedly one has been made. The Hangover star has had a meteoric rise to stardom as of late, so it’s not a huge surprise that his name would pop up in talks for a comic book movie role. He doesn’t have a very distinct voice, so it would be a little bit of an odd choice for Rocket. Vin Diesel has all but signed on the dotted line for Groot, so the raccoon is the only Guardian left to cast. I’m sure we’ll hear something about Rocket‘s casting before too long, and maybe we’ll get a message from Gunn about the Cooper rumors later today. What do you think? Could you see Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon?
