Deadline has broken the news that Benicio Del Toro has also been cast in Guardians of the Galaxy. The cast has really boomed over the past week with recent additions including Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, and probably John C. Reilly. Del Toro’s casting is interesting because they haven’t announced yet who he will play. Rocket Raccoon? Groot? Thanos?
Deadline reported: “They are keeping his role under wraps, but he’s playing a character that is built to be part of future Marvel films, which means he has signed a deal with options that put him into multiple movies”.
I highly doubt that Benicio Del Toro is going to play a talking raccoon or a talking tree. My money is on Thanos. I’m early awaiting the email (official press announcement) from Walt Disney and Marvel Studios for the official word on who is playing what and when we will finally see some images. All I do know is that this year, at Comic Con, the Guardians will assemble!
