Bradley Cooper Confirmed for Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Disney release set for Aug. 1, 2014

In his first voiceover role, Bradley Cooper has joined Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” as Rocket Racoon.

Marvel officially confirmed the casting Friday. Variety reported on Aug. 22 that Cooper was in early talks for the machine-gun wielding character as a key member of the “Guardians” fleet.

Rocket Racoon appeared onscreen in Disney’s D23 Expo earlier this month in Marvel’s teaser and promises to be a more realistic looking version of the genetically modified character.

“Guardians” is directed by James Gunn. The superhero tentpole, starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, will be released by Disney on Aug. 1, 2014.

Cooper was last seen in the third and final “Hangover” film and will next be seen in “American Hustle” which will reunite him with “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O. Russell.
