The Wrap brings us the following:
Bradley Cooper is in early discussions to voice Rocket Raccoon for Marvel cinematic universe newcomer "Guardians of the Galaxy," a person familiar with the project told TheWrap.
An offer is in place and talks are ongoing, though no deal has been made. "Guardians" would be Cooper's first time voicing an animated character.
Marvel's interest in Cooper was first reported by the website Latino Review.
The role would give the "Hangover" star a chance to interpret a comicbook character that was deeply obscure for decades -- until Disney greenlit the movie, when Rocket became an instant topic of discussion among fanboys eager to embrace the blast-happy woodland creature from outer space.
