When it comes to certain comic book characters that we have grown up with, we all have a certain idea in our heads of how they might sound. And one particular one is Rocket Raccoon. I would think many of us have a particular idea in our heads. At one point, it seemed Marvel did too with the like of Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey reportedly being approached to voice the character. Well now, El Mayimbe of Latino-Review.com is reporting another name has been thrown in and according to his source, it is:
How do I know?
According to my trusty sources out of England, Marvel just made the offer to Bradley Cooper reps to voice Rocket Raccoon!
Will he accept the offer? Who knows. But I think a solid choice. Always remember, Marvel is in the big name movie star business.
Not sure what to make of this. If it does turn out to be legit, not sure if this works for me. I always figured Rocket Raccoon to sound more gruff, with a bit of Drill Sergeant in there. I’m sure Bradley Cooper will do a great job, just going to be weird to hear something different then what I have always imagined. What about you?
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Benecio Del Toro, and Gregg Henry, it is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014. (Source: Latino-Review)
