    All I know is that Mayimbe reported that Mamoa and Bautista were in talks, and when talks broke down with Mamoa Bautista was offered the role. Mayimbe reported all that first. Then in THR's official report that Bautista had been cast they pretty much confirmed everything Mayimbe had said. Where Mayimbe went wrong was jumping the gun and saying it looked like Mamoa was their Drax when he made the first article on it.

    I think what he got wrong was saying Jason Momoa got the role of Drax.

    While I might have preferred an actor with a distinctive voice portraying Rocket, overall, I'm for this in general. Bradley Cooper's a very talented actor, and we can't be against having talented actors added to the MCU roster.

    I'm not sure why some think an actor with a distinctive voice would be a good choice. If they do that, then when you see the character talking you can't help but think about the actor playing him instead of just seeing "Rocket Raccoon".

    Distinctive doesn't mean well known. There are plenty of people with great voices that wouldn't be known by the general public. We are facing a Darth Vader situation. It would be impossible to imagine him without James Earl Jones voicing him. Rocket is going to be the "main" part of GOTG, they need a great voice that will be somewhat memorable.

    Wish I could get excited for Cooper as Rocket, let's hope he blows us away.

    Not sure about that one. I would think they would try to get an A-Lister.

    You know if someone told me last year that Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel were going to be in Guardians Of The Galaxy I would of presumed they would be Star-lord and Drax, never in a million years would I of guessed they would be playing Rocket and Groot.

    I asked this in the other thread but didn't get a response, but it's relevant here since you raised this.

    Who do people think is going to be promoted as the main star of this movie now? If people ask who is in this film, won't the first names likely be Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel (if he's confirmed), then Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close? They're all more known than Chris Pratt or Dave Bautista.

    I would think a lot of press articles would list Cooper as the main star given that he seems most like the Hollywood leading man, even though he's actually playing a raccoon here.

    Chris Pratt will almost certainly be promoted as the lead by Marvel and other comic oriented sites, but I imagine many sites and articles will list the biggest stars of the movie.

    Pratt is THE lead. Even in the CC presentations and stuff, they made no bones about the fact that Pratt is their hero and will be billed first and the most promoted. It is Pratt's big coming out moment, his first leading man role in a big budget major studio film.

    Even in MOS, Cavill was the smallest star and in Thor Hemsworth was the smallest star, yet they were both billed first and were the first in publicity.

    The spot light will definitely be on Pratt.
