Meet Rocket Raccoon's 'Model' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

We already know that Bradley Cooper will be providing the Voice of the Gun-Toting Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, But what will our Foul-Mouthed Friend look like? It appears Marvel has found the Answer!

Found raccoon for "Guardians of the Galaxy!" A Raccoon named Oreo, and it will be used as a model for Rocket Raccoon, (meaning that appearance and movements are copied exactly from Oreo.) "We are happy to share the news, our raccoon Oreo got his chance to star. He can work in James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy', and will be a model for the Jet raccoon. This news is very pleased us and we are so happy to be a part of this project. All, and especially James Gunn, refer to the Oreo with kindness and respect, and as always, our little friend is attracting attention to himself. We are very grateful for this opportunity and can not wait for the film."

Guardians Of The Galaxy is Directed by James Gunn, from a screenplay also from Gunn and Nichole Perlman. It Stars: Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. It opens in theaters August 1, 2014.

themidnightking - 9/25/2013, 3:27 PM
@marvel72 A few years ago who'd believe that the Guardians Of The Galaxy were getting a movie before Justice League?
ColonelKilgore - 9/25/2013, 3:51 PM
Cool. I was hoping he would be adorable and have a potty mouth.

Just imagine someone walking up to him and saying "he's adorable!" and Rocket just whips a knife out and threatens them.

That is one adorable raccoon. Unless you've ever had one of the little fvckers break into your house...

Can't deny this guy is cute though.

Yeah, I'm excited for a movie with talking raccoons and trees. Marvel is really good at marketing!
DefcoN - 9/26/2013, 5:14 AM
I want my Oreo!!
riseofloganX36 - 9/26/2013, 7:03 AM
He's not a racoon he's an ailen that comes from a planet that looks like a racoon. And talking trees worked for lord of the rings.

NUFF said BUB!
maito - 9/26/2013, 7:28 AM
The first oreo I like.
NovaCorpsFan - 9/26/2013, 12:17 PM
He IS a raccoon.

Rocket is descended from earth raccoons who were being kept as pets by the loonies on Halfworld. The raccoons were the highest form of intelligent life on the planet and thus were the main guardians of Halfworld and the Keystone Quadrant in general.

The question is and remains...
will this nasty parasite take a poop at all during
this garbage movie?

had one of those things dig thru my trash a month ago and what did I do?

Hosed him down with RAID is what I did.

Dandy - 9/26/2013, 12:30 PM
What they should have said was....

"Little Oreo is heading to space to kick the shit out aliens and blow off monsters limbs with very large guns."
