Let the Guardians of the Galaxy marketing begin! First, the debut trailer was released and now it looks like Marvel will be dropping a short video for each character on the roster. This is perfectly logical since it's safe to say a good portion of the general audience has just about no idea whatsoever who these characters are. In this first video, director James Gunn and actor Bradley Cooper share a few remarks about Rocket Raccoon. To top it off, we also hear a line from Rocket!

It's sort of funny timing since Rocket Raccoon was also voted today as Comic Vine's favorite Guardian of the Galaxy character. Anyway, is that how you expected the character to sound? Speak your mind below.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.

Updates

Marvel just released a "Meet the Guardians of the Galaxy" video for Groot! We don't hear Groot speak, but Vin Diesel chats about the massive character.

And here's one where actor Dave Bautista discusses Drax!

Zoe Saldana shares a few thoughts about Gamora!

Last but not least, here's Star-Lord.

I think it's just like his "old" voice, if you took away the accent.

As far as I am aware Rocket Raccoon was never represented as having a British accent until a couple of years ago in a single video game and a single cartoon show. I certainly never thought of Rocket as British, and honestly, I'd be a bit underwhelmed if he had been. There is not a lot of dialogue here, so it's too early to really say for sure, but I was hoping Cooper would add a little more spice to the voice than I heard there.

Seriously, I don't who came first, but I never read Rocket has having a British accent of any kind.

I liked the little clip though

Rocket has pretty much always been portrayed as British because his creation was inspired by The Beatles song Rocky Raccoon

Not that it matters, but he has always been british, unless people from America and other planets always use words like "bloody" or "jolly good" in their vernacular

I don't think recent RR has had any accent really, as far as I know. But I don't think it's something big to get hung up over, is it a quirk that made him a little more interesting than what he already is? Sure, but it's not a game changer for me for Rocket. I mean he didn't have an accent in Ultimate Spider Man either, but he was still awesome.

I'm by no mean an uber-fan of Bradley Cooper if he's able to tap into that same chaotic mania he has with David O Russel that could be good.

I'm happy with it! Now just give us a taste of "I AM GROOT!"

I never got a chance to read his earlier stories, I was introduced to him through Abnet and Lanning, but it seems like they have certainly dropped the British vernacular in the comics leaving no hints at it.

Yep, I have a feeling Vin will just do fine as Groot, course we didn't hear from Groot but Vin's voice seems to fit nicely.

You don't always have to write his accent to know that he's got one, for instance Wolfbane isn't always written with a Scottish accent but she still has it.

Can everyone relax listen to the clip more closely? Rocket Raccoon does have his British accent, it is the line he says makes it sound a little faint.

#46 Posted by AmazingWebHead (7423 posts) - - Show Bio

Rocket: Aw, no cockney accent?

Groot: Kinda wanted to hear an "I am Groot"

Drax: Have they simplified his origin here? Good.

Gamora: The lack of eyebrows is kinda distracting.

Star-Lord: Outlaw? Because I did my research and it said he was a space cop. Is the change necessary?

Final verdict: this is gonna rule.

Hank Pym is an old man

Quicksilver doesn't look like his comic counterpart

Lex Luthor is played by Jesse Eisenberg

Human Torch is black

Rocket Raccoon doesn't have a british accent...

Its the end of times for comic book fans..... :D

Heath Ledger is playing the Joker

Anne Hathaway doesn't even look like Catwoman

X-Men First Class has too many characters

Gandalf is playing Magneto

Wolverine is being played by an Australian

Kingpin is black

It's the end of times for comic books fans

I really hope your post is sarcastic... because everything I wrote were legitimate complaints I've read in the past, mainly when I hung around imdb, before CV. I don't complain anymore. I judge films after I see them.

If anyone wants to complain about Jonah Hex with me, I'll be right here.

BTW... that's a real complaint I made before XMFC came out. Since then, I no longer complain without seeing the movie.
