James Gunn Reveals Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon Voice Annoyed At Least One Marvel Executive
James Gunn hasn't yet weighed Warner Bros.'s decision to convert his 2021 comic book mast, The Suicide Squad, to an HBO Max hybrid release in theaters, but he did use social media this Christmas week to create lights in his comic book to bring movie over. During a Q&A session with fans, Gunn revealed that he had suffered an internal setback while editing his 2014 Marvel favorite, Guardians of the Galaxy, on Bradley Cooper's voice work as CGI character Rocket Raccoon.
"An executive who is no longer with Marvel Studios / Disney saw an early cut and said, 'Why did we pay money for Bradley Cooper when he doesn't even sound like Bradley Cooper? "Revealed Gunn." I thought we hired him because he's a great actor. That is the point! He creates a CHARACTER! "

Oddly enough, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon just sounds like a thicker and angrier Bradley Cooper. The Oscar-nominated actor has voiced Rocket in Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy films, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and will return to Gunn's third Guardians outing in the future. In answering another fan question, Gunn said his dream comic book team includes Rocket and Groot from the Guardians franchise, which teams up with his new CGI characters Suicide Squad, Weasel and King Shark.
Marvel Studios has no specific production start date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, although parent company Disney confirmed earlier this month that Gunn will also be writing and directing a Guardians vacation special for streaming service Disney +.
