Rocket Raccoon Casting Rumors

Word is out on who might be playing the character -- or at least his voice.

When it comes to comic book movies, there's always rumors flying around. Last night, Latino Review broke the news that they knew who was being approached to provide the voice for Rocket Raccoon in next year's Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

There's been a lot of speculation but the site reported that Bradley Cooper was who Marvel had in mind. This wouldn't mean it was a done deal. Their sources simply said Marvel was making him the offer.

Going along with this, The Hollywood Reporter also mentioned sources confirming this to them.

The movie already has Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan and Dave Bautista on board with Vin Diesel supposedly in talks to voice Groot. Obviously Rocket Raccoon will be CG.

The Hollywood Reporter also mentioned Elizabeth Olsen was in talks to play Scarlet Witch in Avengers: The Age of Ultron.

Thoughts on these possibilities?

I say good that he is voiced by an American since the Raccoon's native habitat is North America. Just sayin.

If they ever decided to use motion capture then I think a good choice would be Andy Serkis. Just my opinion.

I immediately thought Danny Devito for Rocket

I'll be open minded. But i agree that he should've been Cockney or Irish! And I would like Colin Farall or Ralph Fieness

Why would they pay for Brad C. and not have his face in the movie. I doubt this.

Who honestly cares about a stupid raccoon? With him in the roster this film was doomed initially, but now I see that batista the wrestler is in it, I need no more evidence. What a joke.
