Joseph Gordon-Levitt Added to List of Contenders for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

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.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
