    I'd have the widest grin on my face if the trailer has a title card with "And Academy Award Nominee Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon" in it. Already smiling about this casting choice.

    @2movieguys - You defiantly should have a good laugh at this, and then cry when you think about what a huge missed opportunity this is for Marvel. Cooper can headline his own franchise, he auditioned for Green Lantern "thank god he didn't get that role" but you get what I'm saying. Hopefully like they are doing with Vin Diesel, they will use his voice for now but still give him a bigger character to do down the line.

    So does Iron Man will use his Gemini space suit to go find the guardians with Thor's help?

    They casted this perfectly. This movie has started to show some promise. From the details from this movie so far. Yet we don't have a trailer or posters. It's looking good so far.
