Bradley Cooper may voice Rocket Raccoon in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film. Marvel is in early talks with Cooper for the actor to voice Rocket Raccoon in the science-fiction adventure movie. Marvel Studios is in talks with Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Olsen to join casts of two of its movies. Elizabeth Olsen is in negotiations to play Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron, the sequel to the billion-dollar-grossing 2012 movie, multiple sources tell Heat Vision.
Sources reveal that Olsen’s deal is farther along than Cooper’s. Latino Review first reported Cooper’s offer but Marvel had no comment. Production has already begun on Galaxy in London with a cast that includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista as space-spanning adventurers. Guardians of the Galaxy follows an American pilot and a group of futuristic ex-cons who go on the run with one of the most highly coveted objects in space.
Also among the Guardians are Groot, a giant tree-man, and Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered procyonid with a knack for guns and explosives. Both characters will be CGI creations.
Guardians of the Galaxy stars Glenn Close, Vin Diesel, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, and Enzo Cilenti.
James Gunn is directing the movie, which has a August 1, 2014, release date.
Cooper, repped by CAA, next stars in David O. Russell‘s American Hustle, which opens Christmas Day.
