Shortly after I make up a list of rumors going on about comic book movies, we get our first official casting announcement out of those. It seems that Bradley Cooper will in fact be voicing the titular Rocket Raccoon in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film via director James Gunn on twitter.
Yes, it’s true, Bradley Cooper is Rocket and I couldn’t be more stoked. #gotg http://t.co/jwk8QchI8X

Blam! Casted you. This is another A-list actor signed onto the film and is only rounding out the rather impressive cast list. Guardians of the Galaxy also features Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, and a rumored Vin Diesel. I assume we’ll be seeing more on this film in the upcoming months, with its release only 11 months away.
