Bradley Cooper Confirmed For Guardians Of The Galaxy

If, thanks to our exclusive chat with Marvel chief Kevin Feige, you have been pondering the company’s ambitious, space-borne adventure Guardians Of The Galaxy, enjoy some fresh news on that front. The black, white and brown smoke has wafted from the Marvel chimney to announce that Bradley Cooper is officially the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

Cooper was rumoured a few days ago, and now Marvel has made the full announcement on its site. He joins a cast that already includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Gregg Henry, Ophelia Lovibond and, assuming the contract goes through, Vin Diesel providing motion capture and voice work for plant warrior Groot.

Rocket is a genetically and mechanically altered critter, who teams up with a group of fellow outcasts (including Pratt’s human pilot, Peter Quill) to form an unlikely team of heroes.

This really is a fascinating assortment of people, and shows Marvel’s real flair for casting interesting folk. Guardians Of The Galaxy lands here on August 1, 2014.

Cool, I guess
Wouldn't have been my first choice, but I won't write the dude off until I actually hear how he sounds as the character. If it works, he'll steal the movie. More
