"Showtime, a-holes."

Marvel's calling this new video spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 a "teaser," but there's so much new info packed into it that I'd call it a "trailer."

Here’s Another Deleted Scene and Rocket and Groot Featurettes From Guardians of the Galaxy

The Legend of Kevin Bacon

While Guardians of the Galaxy is zooming into home video release (on discs on December 9th, but available on digital formats tomorrow), we're getting lots of little tastes of the movie's special features to whet our appetites for getting a copy of our very own. Above, Bradley Cooper records dialogue and facial expressions for Rocket, below Vin Diesel does the same for Groot, and finally, John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey has a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in a deleted scene.

The Comic Industry Just Had The Best Sales Month In Recorded History. You Can Thank Rocket Raccoon.

*pets head*

I've talked often about how successful comic book movies don't necessarily get new readers into comic shops (and don't really try to) but it seems that just this once, it's happened. People freaking love a potty-mouthed raccoon a whole lot.

Marvel Puts On Private Screening of GotG For Rocket Raccoon’s Creator, Film’s Director Also Makes Us Feel Feelings

Sad ones. Sniff.

I won't get to see Guardians of the Galaxy until tonight, unfortunately, but I've already heard that for a story which involves talking raccoon and a giant Vin Diesel tree, it's a surprising tearjerker. Speaking of surprising tearjerkers, you know what else gets me all choked up?

These Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costumes Will Haunt Your Nightmares

"You're welco—OH! OH GOD! GO AWAY!"

We've been shocked at how every single trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy looks better than the last. These official costumes... not so much. I'd find it endearing that GotG is still capable of such a misstep if any other emotions could make their way through the all-encompassing terror I feel at seeing these outfits. More Rocket, plus Drax the Destroyer and Ronan, are behind the jump... if you dare.

It’s Official Now: Bradley Cooper Is Rocket Raccoon

Well, that's a thing that's happening.

Last week we told you that there were rumors Bradley Cooper was being offered the role of Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Now according to an official release, he's definitely in. I feel like I should be upset about this, but Batfleck has sucked me dry of any and all casting-related emotions.
