Bradley Cooper / Rocket Raccoon

Briefly: The Guardians of the Galaxy are complete. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel are already lined up to play four out of the five heroes in Marvel's new superhero ensemble. Now Marvel has announced officially, after rumors swirled last week, that Bradley Cooper will voice Rocket Raccoon, a genetically modified anthropomorphic raccoon has a knack for guns and explosives, is a great pilot, and has a great sense of smell and impeccable hearing. Iterations of Rocket have portrayed him with a cockney accent but we're not sure if Cooper will use that cue. Either way, we can't wait to hear his take.

    In other news. Denzel Washington will voice Scrooge McDuck in DuckTales reboot. Iterations of McDuck have portrayed him with a Scottish accent but we're not sure if Washington will use that cue. Either way, we can't wait to hear his take.

    This has "retarded" written all over it.

      It's okay if you don't "get it"
    I hope they let Rocket Raccoon swear at least once.

      I'm glad you brought this up....I was always worried with Marvel being Diseny reigns over them about death (people/enemies being killed gruesomely) or swearing cause Disney is a family-like company. Luckily Avengers showed enemies could be shot or killed so I too am hoping he can curse. I never know when it comes to Disney (they seem to let all their cartoon villains perish horrible deaths)

        Who died in Avengers?
        • JBrotsis
          I meant the enemies...the Chitari. But Coulson's death would be another good example.
          • dawko
            Except that he's alive in Shield TV series, *cough*Disney*cough*...Chitari? Any of Marvel's deaths ain't significant enough for anyone to stop and think about those characters that are dying. Bridges, Rourke, anyone in Thor, Cap...However, at least they can create great characters and cast great actors to portray them.

        Tony Stark said "You don't have to be such a p*ssy about it" and "Walk away from that you son of a b*tch"
  • croniccris
