Latino Review now claims to know who, exactly, Marvel Studios is aiming to cast as the voice and soul of Rocket Raccoon. And guess what? Its not Adam Sandler or Jim Carrey, as previously reported.
No, now, apparently, James Gunn and the studio want to hire Bradley Cooper for the role. This has yet to be confirmed by Disney or Marvel, but a source in England close to the project says that an offer has been made to the actor.
In a recent interview, the director had this to say.
"Here's the thing: there are a lot of people who have a lot of ideas of who is right for Rocket Raccoon. Rocket Raccoon has been slightly different over the years, in the comic books, and within my scripts he is a very, very specific guy, and I think people are going to have to wait for a few weeks before they see. We'll have to wait for a few weeks to see. We'll get our dream guy, because a lot of people want to do it, so we'll get the person who's perfect for the role."
What do you think? Is Bradley Cooper the right guy for the role? Or is this still all just high speculation at this point? Who do you want to see voice Rocket Raccoon?
Guardians of the Galaxy was released August 1st, 2014 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan. The film is directed by James Gunn.
