There has been a lot of casting rumors and “offers” over the weekend for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The biggest of which is the offering of Rhomann Dey of to John C. Reilly (Boogie Nights, Wreck-It Ralph). There is also a rumor that Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies) has been offered the role of the villain that may see the light and get his own spin off film.
The interesting part here is that Rhomann Dey is a reoccurring character that is head of the Nova Corps. His character here would be a go between the Guardians and S.H.I.E.L.D. This would mean a multiple movie contract for Reilly. Which opens the us up to the question, could Lee Pace be up for Nova? That would lead us to then ask if Nova is the villain, where is Thanos?
The latest rumor is that Yondu (Michael Rooker) is the film’s bad guy.
All this isn’t written in stone yet true believers. All we do know is that Groot and Rocket Raccoon haven’t even been cast at this point.
What do you think Maniacs? Is this getting out of hand? Can we just have a cast list and a basic synopsis?
The Brief Synopsis: Guardians of the Galaxy centers on Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Pratt), a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone want.
Guardians of the Galaxy arrives August 1, 2014.
