Marvel rocked the house last month at Comic Con’s Hall H and showed off some really dope footage from the movie that included Rocket Raccoon.
Early this year, we ran a story and mentioned that Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey were asked for their availability. Well, it ain’t going to be either of them.
Two weeks ago director James Gunn was asked point blank on twitter…
“@johnny_yip when will we get the Rocket Raccoon and Groot casting?” Unfortunately 1 day added for every person who asks. Sorry. :(

The HUNT was officially on. I love myself a good chase. You can’t get cute on twitter and NOT expect me to go in for a kill. Big game hunters not only bag elephants but pesky varmints like raccoons as well.
Back in April, James Gunn also had to following to say to Hey You Guys!
Q: Do you think he’d be good for the role?
JG: I think there’s – here’s the thing: there are a lot of people who have a lot of ideas of who is right for Rocket Raccoon. Rocket Raccoon has been slightly different over the years, in the comic books, and within my scripts he is a very, very specific guy, and I think people are going to have to wait for a few weeks before they see.
Q: Who would be your dream guy?
JG: We’ll have to wait for a few weeks to see. We’ll get our dream guy, because a lot of people want to do it, so we’ll get the person who’s perfect for the role.
Well cool kids, the hunt is officially over and I came up aces.
I found out who Gunn’s “dream guy” is.
He is in fact quite dreamy according to the ladies.
The “dream guy” is none other than…
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.
Hasta el proximo capitulo cool kids…
