    I was kind of hoping they'd go for a professional voice actor rather than a "name". His voice doesn't have the distinctiveness we associate with great voice acting. I look forward to be pleasantly surprised, though.
    On the other hand, I have no worries whatsoever about Vin Diesel. He was terrific voicing the Iron Giant, and his voice IS distinctive.

    You know it's funny, when I read The Guardians of the Galaxy I had a certain type of voice in my head for Rocket, and Cooper actually fits my imagination pretty well.I know some people were thinking cockney or gruff accents, but I always heard his voice in my head as more subdued. I think it's good they aren't going with someone with a very distinctive voice. If they did that, then when you hear the character talk it's hard not to think of the actor "doing the voice". They already have a challenge to get audiences to accept the character just based on what he is, so using an obvious "distinctive voice" might make it tougher to buy into it. A least in my opinion. They went with a name, yes. But he is also a talented actor who is good at serious stuff and comedy. I think it's a good choice. Plus, Cooper isn't a stranger to doing "voices" ;)http://youtu.be/tNVxTynX4Y0My only problem is that he's too tall for Rocket. ;) image.jpg

    Interesting comments from Vin Diesel regarding his future with the MCUhttp://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/179123-vin-diesel-teases-a-merging-of-brands-for-marvel-phase-3
    Interesting comment about the "merging of brands". My guess at this point is that Marvel is looking to build up its "Cosmic MCU" starting with Guardians of the Galaxy. It's the same universe, but it is kind of its own separate thing from the Earth-based heroes and Avengers stuff, thus a different "brand". And the culmination of Phase 3 may be (as most speculate) involving Thanos, Avengers, and their Cosmic stuff (Guardians, Inhumans, Nova, Captain Marvel, etc..). So maybe that is what he is referring to.I think that is more likely than hinting at bringing Spider-Man or X-Men into the fold.

    But Rocket had a tough Australian accent, in the cartoon! :)

    Normally like all factors about Comedian films, but not sure about this one. Just have difficulties with a Galaxian Idol team presenting a raccoon.

    Looks like a lot of fun. It has a light-hearted nature that the Man of Steel/Dark Knight movies can't touch.

    This is basically the teaser trailer they showed at Comic Con in July with finished effects and a few new shots. I think it works really well as a teaser to give audiences an idea of the tone and look of the film (different from the typical Marvel offering) without really telling you any of the story. I love the use of Hooked on a Feeling. My understanding is that there may be a good bit of "80's" music featured in the film through Peter Quill's Walkman and his "Awesome Mix" tape. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    I like the production design a lot, but this trailer left me surprisingly uninterested. Still going to see it.

    Great look, super fun tone, great casting. Marvel may have done it again!

    It's going to be interesting to see how audiences react. This trailer is a good start in that it introduces all the characters in a very basic manner.

    Of course, they're NOT the Guardians yet when they're in that lineup...but, that won't matter come release time.

    Yeah, I could be wrong but I suspect that the whole line up thing with the run down of the characters by JC Riley was done specifically for the trailer and may not be in the film (at least not in that exact form). The reason being, as you said, I don't think the group is likely to be together yet and calling themselves The Guardians of the Galaxy when they are incarcerated. I could be wrong and the story structure completely different from what I think it will be. But that's a suspicion I have. Also, the fact that the other Nova Corp officer said what a bunch of a-holes makes me suspicious that it was filmed specifically for the trailer. Just seems like he would have said assholes or something else if it was actually on the film. Again, I certainly could be wrong about that. But I'd hate to loose Pratt's finger crank and obscene gesture alert. That was great.

    Really looking forward to this. I've been a Rocket Raccoon fan since discovering his original comic miniseries many years ago. It's a little scary what his first appearance is going for these days. (Thanks to the movie.) I don't think I paid more than three bucks for it in the 90's. And it wasn't in The Incredible Hulk. ;)

    It's almost identical (if more finished SFX footage) to the ComiCon trailer, where it was "assholes". But they had to cut for green-band.

    (Eh, me, I'm getting' too old for this (explosion!)...)
