Bradley Cooper Offered The Role Of Rocket Raccoon In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
THR also confirms the recent casting news from LatinoReview that Bradley Cooper is wanted to voice Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of The Galaxy. Cooper had been linked for talks with Marvel for an undisclosed role for months but LR was the first to crack it. Vin Diesel has also covertly confirmed that he is also in the mix for the role of Groot. Neither have been confirmed by Marvel but with shooting already underway they should be very soon. Oddly enough, having high profile actors voice cosmic characters doesn't rule them out for future in camera parts. We've been hearing that Idris Elba (Thor, Thor: The Dark World) wants a shot at other Marvel hero roles such as Blade, Black Panther and Luke Cage. So having Cooper or Diesel play a second MCU role wouldn't be hard to imagine.
