Palisadians Bradley Cooper and Don Cheadle are back for more action in “Avengers: Endgame,” premiering April 26. “Endgame” is also produced by Marvel Studios President and Palisadian Kevin Feige.
“None of the characters are immortal,” Feige told Nightline in a recent interview. “None of the characters can’t be killed. That’s why they seem so human. That’s one of the reasons you connect with them.”
“Endgame” is the culmination of 10 years and 22 films that comprise the Marvel cinematic universe—the most profitable film franchise ever created, netting a historic $18.5 billion.
Cooper reprises his role as Rocket Raccoon, the quippy, bitter gun-slinging critter from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies. Heralded for his voice work in the role, Cooper told BBC Radio Rocket’s voice “became like a hybrid of Daniel Plainview and Gilbert Gottfried.”
Rocket Raccoon was left alive after the events of “Avengers: Infinity War” and will once again suit up to avenge his fallen friends with plenty of pull in the plot.
Cheadle will also reprise his role as super-suited soldier War Machine from the “Iron Man” series, having also made it out alive after the events of “Infinity War.”
Cheadle and Cooper are part of the very short list of living heroes in “Endgame,” including Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Karen Gillan as Nebula.
“Endgame” is already crushing the pre-sale box office records, setting new first-hour and first-day records on Atom Tickets and Fandango.
