Phase Two of Marvel Studios is already very much underway and to say that we are excited about it, is quite an understatement. “Iron Man 3” releases in AMC Theatres in May 2013, “Thor: The Dark World” in November 2013, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in April 2014 and “The Avengers 2” in May 2015. Director and scribe James Gunn is leading the charge for the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy”, set to hit AMC Theatres in August 2014. With that locked, we can now move on to the casting.
Actors such as Joel Edgerton, Jim Sturgess, Jack Huston, Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne have auditioned for the Guardians’ leader Peter Quill, later known as Star-Lord. James Marsden, Garrett Hedlund and Sullivan Stepleton are also rumored to be interested in the role.
Peter Quill was a former NASA astronaut who learns that his father is an alien, which leads him to outer space and then to his eventual transformation into Star-Lord. He is one of five members of the Guardians, which also includes Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Drax The Destroyer and Gamora.
