Now, I can only imagine this would be for a voice acting role (perhaps Rocket Raccoon?). In the off chance this isn't limited to voice acting, I could definitely tolerate Jim Carrey -- he's certainly a fine actor -- but Adam Sandler? Well, this is my immediate response.
I suppose going for a big name or bringing heavy comedy makes sense from their angle. These characters are widely unknown to the general audience. Personally though, I was hoping marketing alone could compensate for that and still reel in audiences. After all, this should be a "must see" movie for anyone that saw Avengers or wants to see Avengers 2 and that's an insane amount of people.
Additionally, there's also a new trio of names allegedly in the running for Star-Lord. Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell & Cam Gigandet are the latest names to add to the growing list.
Viners, what do you think about this latest batch of rumors?
