I'm going to fan cast James Avery. Yes he was Uncle Phil but he was also Shredder so yeah what the hell. He's my pick of the evening for Rocket

It would really make my day if they cast him as rocket raccoon.

How about James Cosmos for Rocket? Tough voice.

They probably are all basing that off the fact that they gave him a cockney accent in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

...and that's pretty much it. No reason Rocket needs to be or will be British. His creators were American and he has used a sort of generic American vernacular in all his comic iterations. And Abnett and Lanning are both British and still they never had Rocket speaking with any kind of British accent or using British terms. They did on the other hand have Rocket speaking completely standard American English throughout. (when a mainstream comic wants you to know a particular character is non-American, they generally make it very clear via cues in the dialogue. it wouldnt be ambiguous.)

Capcom is irrelevant and his brief appearance in a cartoon wont play a significant role in casting. That said, they very well might cast a Brit or Aussie for this, but theres absolutely no reason they should.

I think Rocket Raccoon needs to be voiced by a Belgian.

Rocket should have the voice of Hercules Poirot as played by Peter Ustinov in Death on the Nile. Better option than Jason Statham.
(Cue announcement that Jason Statham has indeed been cast as Rocket... sigh)

i don't get when people say that Rocket having a British accent doesn't make sense. Yes he's an alien but does having an American accent make more sense? No.

I actually wouldnt mind Jason Statham as Rocket Racoon at all. I think that'd be funny and I actually like him as an actor

I nominate Ian McShane, assuming he uses his Swearengen voice. not likely i know.

Yeah it really doesn't matter one way or the other. I just find it strange when people damn near insist he has to have a British accent because he does in a video game.

I'm really hoping that rumor about Tennant is true. I love me some Ten so much, plus his voice is super distinctive, IMO.

I'd love for Rocket to be voiced by some gruff British cat personally. I've been imagining McShane or Winstone or Statham for the part. But Tennant works beautifully.

Now if only I can get Benedict Cumberbatch into a Marvel film somehow.... Actually, he'd be a pretty dynamite Rocket too.

He can be Dr. Doom when Fox flubs the FF reboot and the rights revert.

YASSSSSSS...

Although I'm itching to see him play a bigscreen hero. He would make a wonderfully arrogant Stephen Strange.

That's one way to put it. You'd probably never really expect someone like Glenn Close to go close to many Marvel films, let alone this one.

I wonder if Rocket Raccoon's VA might just round out the cast... it seems like they're in no hurry to announce his casting, yet it's the main one people want to know about.

Edit: Him and Thanos, can't forget about the mad titan. If Thanos isn't in this movie I'll be really disappointed.
