Welcome to Monday’s edition of the Nerd Bastards rumor mill. This time around, we have for you what could be a very juicy piece of news, if it turns out to be true. It looks like James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy may be snatching up a Doctor to join their cast. The man in question is David Tennant. The role he may play? The voice of Rocket Raccoon.
If the casting is correct and Tennant agrees to do it, would be quite a trip to hear his voice coming out of a CGI raccoon-hero. He would be joining an interesting cast, including Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Michael Rooker as Yondu.
We’ll keep our ears open for more and let you all know if something pops up. The actual movie (Tennant-less or otherwise) will be arriving in theaters come August 1st, 2014.
Thanks to CinemaBlend for the heads-up.
