Well Latino Review is at it again with their exclusive reports. The hunt for a Rocket Raccoon is now on for Marvel and Disney, as it is the only character not yet cast in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
In an interview with HEY YOU GUYS director James Gunn stated:
"JG: I think there’s – here’s the thing: there are a lot of people who have a lot of ideas of who is right for Rocket Raccoon. Rocket Raccoon has been slightly different over the years, in the comic books, and within my scripts he is a very, very specific guy, and I think people are going to have to wait for a few weeks before they see.
Q: Who would be your dream guy?
JG: We’ll have to wait for a few weeks to see. We’ll get our dream guy, because a lot of people want to do it, so we’ll get the person who’s perfect for the role."
Latino Review is reporting that Gunn’s Dream Guy is Bradley Cooper. Their source is out of England and stating that they have made an offer to Cooper.
