I agree with the comments in the article, H Jon Benjamin.  Imagine Rocket Racoon with the voice of Sterling Archer.

"Hey Gamora.  Gamora!  GAMORA!"
"What?!"
".....DANGERZONE!"

Vin Diesel is the voice of Groot.

Let that sink in for a minute.

That works. I don't think BC has a distinctive enough voice. He's just a name for the poster.
But both are only going to be in recording studios for a couple of days and pocket a million or two bucks.
So good for them.

I vote for Danny DeVito.

Or maybe Idris Elba.

Raccoon with the voice of Elba would be...hilarious.

Chev Chelios should be in every movie.

Kristen Schaal or Kristin Chenoweth.

John Oliver would also be hilarious.  Or Simon Pegg.  Needs to be a British accent regardless.  A raccoon with a British accent is inherently hilarious.

dionysusaur: Kristen Schaal or Kristin Chenoweth.


Pretty sure Rocket Raccoon is a dude.

Oh cool. I had no idea Groot was an old Marvel monster.

Also, I really love that rotating raccoon gif.

No... Statham has actually been considered for Daredevil, though.

I'm hearing it's a done deal. Cooper is Rocket.

Sure let's hire someone most famous for his face to do some voice work.

Idiots..

Fark the British, Rocket should be American like all good things. Save British accents for the bad guys. Cooper is a pretty weird choice though

Well, this is probably one of the most obscure comic book movies yet, so theyre loading it with as much name recognition as possible. I mean theyve got an oscar winner and 2 oscar nominees in just supporting roles.

How pissed would you all be if it was Owen Wilson?

That.....is a really good point.
I guess names for the posters would be a good thing. Also, the big names would get on late shows easier.....
You know what, I rescind by previous objections to this casting decision.

Take all news coming from Latino Review with a huge grain of salt. They are wrong about this stuff more often than not.  I think they just throw out wild rumors to attract page views. One of their recent notable leaks was that Iron Man 3 ended with Stark putting on the space suit and flying off to join the guardians.

Latino Review is quite often completely full of shiat.

So...they lifted the ending from the recent comics? That's not just bullshiat, but lazy bullshiat, to boot.

I hear she's signed.

Not British. Rocket Racoon was created as an homage to Rocky Raccoon, the Beatles song. He has always been considered to have a British accent, as another nod to his origins. Every version of him we've seen so far has sounded British (games and cartoons).
