Marvel Update: Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Olsen Being Cast?

Hmmm. Interesting rumors flying about regarding two upcoming movie projects for Marvel, namely GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Seems Bradley Cooper has been extended an offer to lend his voice to the would-be centerpiece of the movie, Rocket Raccoon. Yes, he's an all CG character but that adds credibility to the rumor as the only way Cooper would be able to fit in GOTG would be through voice only. The man is BUSY.

GUARDIANS is already in production in London and also stars Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Chris Pratt (Peter Quill / Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Djimon Hounsou (Korath), John C. Reilly (Rhomman Dey), Glenn Close (Dey's superior), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Lee Pace (Ronan the Accuser), Peter Serafinowicz and Karen Gillan (Nebula). Vin Diesel (Groot) has not been confirmed yet.

Also hitting the rumor mill today is Elizabeth Olsen being tapped for Scarlet Witch in the sure to be mammoth production, THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Apparently Olsen is closer to signing than Cooper who may have just only received the offer. Both are strong actors and obviously would add tremendous value to the productions.

More details when and if these rumors become fact. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is slated for release on August 1, 2014 and THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON bows on May 1, 2015.
