Bradley Cooper has officially signed on to join the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Rocket Raccoon, Marvel announced in an official press release Friday. Cooper joins an already impressive billing that includes the likes of Vin Diesel, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Dave Bautista, and Glenn Close to lend his voice to the animated superhero film. Here’s a description of the film via Marvel’s release on their official website: In the far reaches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an unlikely cast of characters including Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket Raccoon must join forces to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. Directed by James Gunn, the live-action “Guardians of the Galaxy” will take fans to new corners of the Marvel Universe when it hits theaters August 1, 2014. If for no other reason than the cast alone, this should be a pretty intriguing film. It seems like a pretty unique project that more and more A-List names are buying into, making me think it’s okay to start getting excited about it.
