Bradley Cooper Announced as Voice of Rocket Raccoon

Marvel.com has announced Annoying Guy #3 (Bradley Cooper) from the Academy Award Winning-film, Hangover Part III, as the voice of Rocket Raccoon. There are any number of jokes I could throw in here, like how he was basically the annoying "boyfriend" of Batman's wife in Alias, or how he played what was basically himself when he was Face in The A-Team...

But ultimately, I'm mostly just disappointed that they didn't tap Billy West for the role, since he was doing it in the Ultimate Spiderman. With Futurama ending, he has more time. Plus, he's awesome! So... everyone enjoy the fact that the guy from Silver Linings Playbook is going to voice the most butt-kicking rodent in the Marvel Universe.

Of course, that being said... I am totally looking forward to getting a Rocket Raccoon minifig!

He was very good in Silver Linings Playbook.

Just sayin'.

Such a waste. I was hoping they'd choose some with a lot of character in their voice.

Oh well, can't all be gems I suppose.

Really glad about this. Bradley Cooper can do a lot with his voice (best Walken impression out of all the celebrities). A Rocket Raccoon minifig will be awesome.

This is the most obscure character Marvel could have picked for a movie. I remember reading Rocket Racoon once in the 80's - has he had a resurgence in the last few years? (I don't follow comics at all.)

Jay Mohr does the best Walken impression, bar none.

And yes, Rocket Raccoon has see a resurgence in the last few years, when the Guardians were reformed (presumably for the sake of the movie) and given a more central role in the universe (adding Iron Man to a team will do that).

Better not be. I think the demand for that figure is enough alone for them to make GotG set(s).

...the most butt-kicking rodent in the Marvel Universe.

Does that mean there are others?

Also, Raccoons aren't rodents.

I don't know... I still can't get over the idea of a raccoon with a jetpack and guns.

12 pages of them on the Marvel Wikia page...

And in this case, I'm using rodent as another word for pest. Raccoons are just awful to a yard and house.

Because Norse gods and giant green monsters are much more plausible.
