DC Universe has been the premier destination for fans, superheroes, and epic adventures bringing to life some of the iconic characters and storylines of pop culture. From the misty streets of Gotham City to the world of Themyscira, the DC cinematic universe is a place of wonder.
James Gunn makes room for a new league of superheroes with a storyline that surpasses the best film cast ever assembled. And in this setting, Bradley Cooper might have an opportunity to make a name for himself as a superhero and simply as a voice with a gun and quick-witted raccoon face.
Bradley Cooper may have finished portraying Rocket Raccoon in the spectacular Galaxy Vol. 3 finales, but the actor is now reportedly James Gunn’s top pick to play Batman in his upcoming Bat-family film, Brave and the Bold, as well as future DC universe-related projects. The actor may now be living his goal with James Gunn’s blessings after previously trying out for several DC parts but losing all of them, including Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern.
Bradley Cooper owes his association in the DC universe to James Gunn
Bradley Cooper, who previously drew inspiration from Christian Bale after losing the role of Green Lantern to Ryan Reynolds, failed terribly in his attempt to play DC’s caped Crusader. Cooper admitted that during the audition, he imitated Christian Bale’s Batman, which was botched.
While Ryan Reynold’s career suffered after the Green Lantern’s catastrophe, the actor is rumored to step into the world of DC and play an older Batman in James Gunn‘s lined-up Batman films like Brave and the Bold.
Several rumors are supporting the A Star is Born actor’s switch from Marvel to DC, implying that Bradley Cooper could be James Gunn’s choice as an older Batman, as the director now devotes his complete attention to his impending DC projects.
Bradley Cooper’s entry in DC will be a win for his career-
The voice behind the popular Rocket was mute in the DC universe prior to joining Marvel’s $1.2 billion Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Cooper failed to land on a DC project despite several attempts at auditioning.
It is only legitimate to say that Cooper’s retirement from the superhero roles after Ryan Reynolds, who himself reflected on the “end of superheroes” following the 2011 debacle made the decision a blessing in disguise. The 2011 movie turned into one of the biggest flops in history. It took Reynolds a good time to return back to the scene.
Bradley Cooper moved on to win four Oscar nominations for his work on films like Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and the war biopic American Sniper.
According to recent rumors, Bradley Cooper will make a much-anticipated entry into the James Gunn-dominated DCEU as his leader Batman, living up to his declaration that “I go wherever Gunn goes”. He might not have had the courage to slip into the cape then, but things could be a lot different now.
Bradley Cooper has a glorious career, even being out of the DC universe
Bradley Cooper has been a driving force in Hollywood for over a decade, thanks in no small part to his incredible talent and versatility as an actor. Whether he is playing a loveable rogue, a conflicted antihero, or a troubled genius, Cooper brings depth and nuances to his performance that few actors can match.
\From the raunchy comedy of “The Hangover” to the heart-wrenching drama of “A star is born,” Cooper has shown his capability to tackle any role. He has given some exceptional performances in movies like Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, American Sniper, Limitless, Nightmare Alley, The Place Beyond the Pines, The Mule, and Maestro.
If you have not watched any movies of Cooper yet, you are missing a lot. Go grab some popcorn and a Coke, and enjoy watching Copper!
