I totally understand and agree with you guys, but I also think Marvel is looking for an "A-List" name they can attach to this film. All of the actors in the movie so far are fantastic choices but none of them are household names. Why do you think they brought Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman on for Thor? Yes, they are incredible actors and fit the roles nicely, but they also brought much needed star power. Who had ever heard of Chris Hemsworth or Tom Hiddleston before Thor?
The same is true for Guardians of the Galaxy. With such weird and obscure source material, they need to be able to say, "Bradley Cooper is involved in our movie, come see it!" And with him only providing his voice talents, they should be able to land him without having to kill their budget. I think it's a smart move as long as he has the vocal talents to pull it off.
