If a new rumor is accurate, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are soon to be the next big draw in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to reports, Bradley Cooper will reprise his role as Rocket Racoon in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but studio heads want Lady Gaga to play Rocket’s love interest. There may be no other couple that fans want to see together right now more than Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and if they aren’t going to go public with a relationship, the next best thing is for the two to star onscreen in a romantic sense. Neither Bradley Cooper or Lady Gaga have confirmed or denied the rumors.
Film Updates shared a report about the rumor that instantly gained traction on social media with Lady Gaga’s, Bradley Cooper’s and Guardians of the Galaxy’s fans.
James Gunn is back at the movie’s helm and the full cast has yet to be announced. At this point, there are only five names confirmed to star in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and those are Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Pom Klementleff (Mantis), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), Dave Bautista (Drax), and Sean Gunn (Kraglin/ On Set Rocket).
Reports say that Bradley Cooper will return to voice his role as Rocket and Lady Gaga is wanted to play Rocket’s love interest Lady Lylla.

At this point, it’s too early to know if this is simply a rumor or if Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will, in fact, be bringing their amazing chemistry back to the screen, only as furries. It’s also unclear where this rumor originated as it might just be the brainstorm of some zealous fans who are shipping the two overtime.
James Gunn is currently working on three projects: The Suicide Squad, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the television series Starsky and Hutch. The Suicide Squad is in pre-production and will star Margo Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Idris Elba, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, David Dastmalchlan, and Daniela Melchior. The movie is set for a release in 2021. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’s plot is currently unknown and there is no scheduled release date. Do you think they should cast Lady Gaga as Bradley Cooper’s love interest?
