It’s official, we’ve got our first taste of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. AND… it’s awesome but brief.
One of the biggest questions I’ve heard about that this film, aside from “Is that a talking squirrel?”, was many fans asking who would provide the voice, and the ego-driven attitude, of Rocket Raccoon!. For months we heard nothing but then awhile ago, they finally announced that, star of The Hangover and American Hustle, Bradley Cooper had landed the role.
Once we knew it was Cooper, we had a faint idea of Rocket’s sound, but nothing really to go on and even the first trailer released earlier this week didn’t give us any clues.
But now, we finally have it. Marvel have released a 30-second behind-the-scenes clip introducing fans to Rocket, featuring new footage, interview snippets from Cooper and, finally, one line of the character’s dialogue. Check it out above, and get ready to fall in love with this year greatest animated character! A gun-toting, foul mouth, space raccoon.
Marvel also just dropped a similar clip profiling Groot, Rocket’s companion and walking tree-based “muscle”. Unfortunately, we don’t hear Vin Diesel talk as the character. He does talk about being the character. So no “I am Groot” for any of us yet. But trust me check the clip out anyway.
Well? What do you guys think? Is the talking space raccoon, everything you hoped for?
Guardians of the Galaxy is set for release on the 1st of August 2014
