Filming for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is well under way in London, but we still are missing people for the roles of two central characters, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Vin Diesel has been dropping strong hints that he may be the voice for Groot, but we really haven't heard a ton of chatter on who will voice Rocket Raccoon.
Well, that may have changed now as Latino Review is reporting that their "trusty sources out of England" have informed them that Marvel has made an offer to Bradley Cooper to voice Rocket Raccoon.
As always, file this away under rumor, even with Latino Review being a reputable source for these things, nothing is final until we officially hear something from Marvel/Disney.
I like Bradley Cooper, and after coming upon this news I pulled up a few clips of him and closed my eyes while he was talking. Despite how creepy that sounds, I can actually see this being the voice of a Raccoon with an attitude and arsenal of weapons to match. If this proves to be true, I'll be quite pleased with this.
I honestly think that Groot and Rocket Raccoon are going to steal the show in Guardians of the Galaxy and is probably now my most anticipated Marvel Movie Phase 2 film because, frankly, I just don't know what to expect!
Sound off with your thoughts of this rumored casting choice, and let us know who you think should voice Rocket Raccoon in the comments below!
