With movie casting announcements seeming to be flowing freely from both big name comic companies, one of the latest is Marvel’s official acknowledgement that actor Bradley Cooper is all in for doing the voice for Guardians of the Galaxy member Rocket Raccoon, a genetically altered space-travelling ship captain who, although otherwise humanoid, has all the other features and abilities of any other Earthly raccoon.  Part of Marvel’s “Phase Two” of their ongoing Avengers tie-in films, Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to be released August 1, 2014.

Here is Marvel’s official release:

Academy Award-nominated actor Bradley Cooper has officially joined the cast of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” lending his voice to the fan-favorite raccoon that will join Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista) on their epic adventure.

Cooper has previously starred in “Silver Linings Playbook,” for which he was nominated for an Oscar®, “Limitless,” “Place Beyond the Pines” and the “Hangover” trilogy, the latter of which has grossed $1.4 billion globally. He will next be seen in “American Hustle” which will reunite him with “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O. Russell. “Guardians of the Galaxy” will mark Cooper’s first voiceover work.

In the far reaches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an unlikely cast of characters including Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket Raccoon must join forces to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. Directed by James Gunn, the live-action “Guardians of the Galaxy” will take fans to new corners of the Marvel Universe when it hits theaters August 1, 2014, but in the meantime stay tuned to Marvel.com for the latest news as it breaks, including official casting, first looks and more!
