Just when we thought the list to play Star-Lord in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" was down to just two names, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has now been added to the mix. The current list, which had already been previously narrowed down, includes Jim Sturgess and Zachary Levi.
There have been a ton of rumors swirling around regarding Gordon-Levitt's involvement in many comic-book adapted films. It was inferred in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" that he could become Batman's successor. It was also announced a couple of months ago that he could star as Batman in the upcoming "Justice League" film. That rumor was quickly put to rest by Gordon-Levitt's publicist, which may or may not turn out to be true, as publicists are always trying to protect their clients.
Now with the news that Gordon-Levitt may star as Star-Lord, inquiring minds would like to know if this will also be added to the rumors pile or if this news could actually be true. If it is confirmed as truth, that would likely put the official kibosh on him playing Batman in "Justice League".
We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
