No on both. Please no.
I get the sense that Kevin Feige is a goofball and likes that type of humor. Trying to artificially inject THAT type of humor into a superhero movie is destined for "Batman & Robin" type results.
I can't see either of them being the on-screen or voicing over any of the characters. I always pictured Racoon as having a gruff, military-esque voice. Think crazy Willem Dafoe, or Jason Statham. And for Groot the voice should be inhuman. Think Dr Claw or Mike Patton in The Darkness video game.
Definitely cannot see Sandler pulling off anything as different as this sort of movie. Carrey I would actually have to see to believe. He's a great actor and comedian but Ace Ventura is very fresh in my mind so it's nearly impossible to not think of Rocket Raccoon shouting 'ALRIIGHTY THEN'.
Jim Carrey as a voice actor would be kind of weird to see. He is so off the wall sometimes I couldn't imagine them to make a character to act to his loud antics. Might not be such a bad idea, but depends on who which character he is cast for. Adam Sandler has his own type of comedy and I don't think he would pull off a comic character. He is more slapstick and uncomfortable funny.
Jim Carrey is an extremely talented actor. If you haven't seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Majestic I recommend you check them out to see Carrey's dramatic side.
I'll be on board with him being cast in any capacity, not just as a voice actor.
Sandler has acting chops too it's just that no one seems to notice probably because of the large amount of crap films he also puts out. He was excellent in Reign Over Me, suitably peculiar in Punch-Drunk Love, and endearing in Spanglish. As long as the writing is good, either guy is a fine choice (so long as they bring their A-game). I don't know anything about Rocket Raccoon but thought I'd throw in my two cents as far as Sandler's credibility goes.
Jim Carrey is great. He's probably one of the best underrated actors of his generation. I'm convinced he can play any role being asked. No problem here.
Adam Sandler is what he is & I do not understand the hate for him. He's not my first choice for a starring Marvel movie but as a supporting member, it could work.
Because yea, internet fan boys were so right about RDJ & Heath Ledger in comic roles werent they?
I'm sorry, but If either of them are in this movie I will NOT see it. Iron Man had enough humor, & it was good humor. I enjoyed it alot. I feel that the Amazing Spider-Reboot tried to copy that exchange between Tony & Pepper for Gwen & Spidy, but didnt get it right.
However, I dont think Adam Sandler or Jim Carry can make a movie without going all goofy, this is were that realistic adaptation BS is coming back to harm movies, they must feel with a racoon & tree-man, etc that they have to really go wacky because the viewers wont be able to handle it not being "realistic"
This movie will probly suck & ruin the entire Marvel Movie-Verse . This is when a company has something good that prints money, so they have to expand it.
Marvel, watch your Ghost Rider movies. Or Elektra. Because you are about to make your 4th worst movie. & destroy all of your Avengers related momentum
(And we need Phyla Vell in this or a sequel! Get a gay superhero on the screen!)
While I would prefer a movie with only the Hot super-females, no female super hero other than maybe Hit Girl has ever played a major part in a superhero movie that didnt suck. So since they cant even get a basic super-female done properly, giving them two things like that is well beyond them.
ok i really dont want either. i know jim carrey does have the acting chops, but if it really is for the raccoon i think sandlers voice does actually work better. i mean listen to him speak close your eyes and cant you see that voice coming from a little woodland creature? but honestly i really hope that neither are in it. its already hard enough for me to take this movie seriously already. and a bad cast would just kill any chance of me watching this film
I'd have to say 'no' to both.
Carrey at least I can tolerate. He actually has made a few movies I enjoy, just don't think he'd be good for the character.
Casting Sandler, however, will be a death sentence for this movie. Given how bad the last Sandler movie I was subjected to was I think I'd find greater entertainment value by simply taking $15 and setting it on fire then I would be watching anything else that he's involved with.
