No on both. Please no.

I get the sense that Kevin Feige is a goofball and likes that type of humor. Trying to artificially inject THAT type of humor into a superhero movie is destined for "Batman & Robin" type results.

I wouldn't mind Jim Carrey since he has been funny once or twice, but Adam Sandler?!?! Does Marvel not want people to see this in theaters?

I don't want either, to be honest. At least it's not Will Ferril *cringe*

#54 Posted by iancoderre3 (53 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carry, No. Adam Sandler, No. Someone serious to portray the role well?, Yes.

#55 Posted by ME24601 (118 posts) - - Show Bio

That sounds like a terrible idea...

#56 Posted by Logan Reilly (30 posts) - - Show Bio

i could live with Jim Carrey. I hope it doesn't happen, but if it does, it's not the worst thing. Adam Sandler in the movie? THAT'S the worst thing!

#57 Posted by RedQueen (1171 posts) - - Show Bio

Carrey, yes for voice-overs. As long as he doesn't go all, Ace Ventura/Riddler on us. Sandler, no. Just no.

#58 Posted by JMLG (135 posts) - - Show Bio

lets hope not.. both been awful in the last decade, especially Sandler

I can't see either of them being the on-screen or voicing over any of the characters. I always pictured Racoon as having a gruff, military-esque voice. Think crazy Willem Dafoe, or Jason Statham. And for Groot the voice should be inhuman. Think Dr Claw or Mike Patton in The Darkness video game.

Definitely cannot see Sandler pulling off anything as different as this sort of movie. Carrey I would actually have to see to believe. He's a great actor and comedian but Ace Ventura is very fresh in my mind so it's nearly impossible to not think of Rocket Raccoon shouting 'ALRIIGHTY THEN'.

you guys are crazy...Sandler doing Groot would be awesome!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

#63 Posted by emmbro30 (249 posts) - - Show Bio

All I can say is that I remember similar reactions when it was announced that Robert Downey Jr. was to be Iron-Man, and we all know how that turned out. So whatever happens, who knows???

Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler? Oh gosh no!

So far Marvel has done excellent casting work for all their films, so I hope this is fake.

#65 Posted by kennybaese (1114 posts) - - Show Bio

I seriously doubt that Sandler is interested in doing anything other than his own movies at this point since all they do is make buckets of money. Carrey could be an interesting choice.

#66 Posted by brandonbonito (15 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carrey as a voice actor would be kind of weird to see. He is so off the wall sometimes I couldn't imagine them to make a character to act to his loud antics. Might not be such a bad idea, but depends on who which character he is cast for. Adam Sandler has his own type of comedy and I don't think he would pull off a comic character. He is more slapstick and uncomfortable funny.

Jim Carrey is an extremely talented actor. If you haven't seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Majestic I recommend you check them out to see Carrey's dramatic side.

I'll be on board with him being cast in any capacity, not just as a voice actor.

#68 Posted by braynehurricane (130 posts) - - Show Bio

Sandler has acting chops too it's just that no one seems to notice probably because of the large amount of crap films he also puts out. He was excellent in Reign Over Me, suitably peculiar in Punch-Drunk Love, and endearing in Spanglish. As long as the writing is good, either guy is a fine choice (so long as they bring their A-game). I don't know anything about Rocket Raccoon but thought I'd throw in my two cents as far as Sandler's credibility goes.

@emmbro30: hit the nail on the head!

#70 Posted by Shamelesslysupportinaznballers (553 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carrey is great. He's probably one of the best underrated actors of his generation. I'm convinced he can play any role being asked. No problem here.

Adam Sandler is what he is & I do not understand the hate for him. He's not my first choice for a starring Marvel movie but as a supporting member, it could work.

Because yea, internet fan boys were so right about RDJ & Heath Ledger in comic roles werent they?

#71 Posted by Mucklefluga (2563 posts) - - Show Bio

So this Marvel movie will be a comedy too? yay -__-

#72 Posted by SlickyMike88 (224 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carry, sure

Adam Sandlar ,NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

#73 Edited by Misterwizz (200 posts) - - Show Bio

Eh okay!

#74 Posted by Misterwizz (200 posts) - - Show Bio

Interesting. If either of them actually end up doing the film (and I doubt they will) this wouldn’t be the first time either of them have done voice work.

#75 Posted by DaltonMunnal (162 posts) - - Show Bio

How have I not known yet that Carrey is in Kick Ass 2? That is absolutely brilliant.

And I am also on the side that Carrey could do anything he wants and Sandler should stay far far away from this.

#76 Posted by Hermatt (70 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't mind seeing Carrey just as a voiceover for RR. If sandler gets a shot I only hope he voices Groot just so he has one line of dialog the entire movie.

#77 Posted by Icarusflies (12502 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carrey is rumored for EVERY SINGLE COMIC MOVIE that's announced. I wouldn't look into it too much.

I think we need Phyla Vell so we can get Carol Danvers as Captain/Ms. Marvel in Avengers 2.

I could actually see Carrey as the voice of Groot,,,

#80 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33338 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok now I know there trolling.

I'm not joking if ether of these guys are in this film I'm going nowhere near it and that is very hard for me to say

#81 Posted by GothamRed (2563 posts) - - Show Bio

Groot?

#82 Posted by Renchamp (2390 posts) - - Show Bio

Carrey was awful as Horton. He just doesn't have a voice for voice-over. I could see a reigned-in yet very sarcastic Sandler.

Sandler and Carrey would guarantee the movie is a smash hit. Marvel's being pretty savy here

#84 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (9054 posts) - - Show Bio

I would not be happy with that casting

#85 Posted by Metric_Outlaw (71 posts) - - Show Bio

Please don't let it be either but especially not Sandler.

#86 Posted by VictorVonDoom_1 (142 posts) - - Show Bio

Michael Rooker should be voicing Rocket. I guess I wouldn't mind Jim Carrey, but Sandler?! Dude is not funny.

i wont mind neither of them on all honesty

#89 Edited by COBRAMORPH (1556 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm sorry, but If either of them are in this movie I will NOT see it. Iron Man had enough humor, & it was good humor. I enjoyed it alot. I feel that the Amazing Spider-Reboot tried to copy that exchange between Tony & Pepper for Gwen & Spidy, but didnt get it right.

However, I dont think Adam Sandler or Jim Carry can make a movie without going all goofy, this is were that realistic adaptation BS is coming back to harm movies, they must feel with a racoon & tree-man, etc that they have to really go wacky because the viewers wont be able to handle it not being "realistic"

This movie will probly suck & ruin the entire Marvel Movie-Verse . This is when a company has something good that prints money, so they have to expand it.

Marvel, watch your Ghost Rider movies. Or Elektra. Because you are about to make your 4th worst movie. & destroy all of your Avengers related momentum

While I would prefer a movie with only the Hot super-females, no female super hero other than maybe Hit Girl has ever played a major part in a superhero movie that didnt suck. So since they cant even get a basic super-female done properly, giving them two things like that is well beyond them.

I agree, I hope it's for the raccoon (if the rumors are true).

NO ! Both of them would suck in super Hero movie

This is a Disney idea!

#95 Posted by jason44143 (25 posts) - - Show Bio

ok i really dont want either. i know jim carrey does have the acting chops, but if it really is for the raccoon i think sandlers voice does actually work better. i mean listen to him speak close your eyes and cant you see that voice coming from a little woodland creature? but honestly i really hope that neither are in it. its already hard enough for me to take this movie seriously already. and a bad cast would just kill any chance of me watching this film

@blackcobalt: Ah, wow I have that game but I've never played as him. I like that interpretation though. Pretty badass.

#97 Posted by Moonchilde (1601 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd have to say 'no' to both.

Carrey at least I can tolerate. He actually has made a few movies I enjoy, just don't think he'd be good for the character.

Casting Sandler, however, will be a death sentence for this movie. Given how bad the last Sandler movie I was subjected to was I think I'd find greater entertainment value by simply taking $15 and setting it on fire then I would be watching anything else that he's involved with.
