Are you excited for Guardians of the Galaxy??
You should be, even if you don't have any idea what it is. Just know that it's about a group of alien superheros who team up to protect the solar system from an evil alien race — and that James Gunn is directing it.
Who's James Gunn? He's the fearless director with a wicked sense of humor behind movies like Slither and Super. And he's the perfect choice, because this isn't your average superhero flick — even though the Guardians HAVE teamed up with the Avengers in the past!
The biggest role for James to fill is that of Peter Quill, who is the leader of the Guardians, and has an human mother and an alien father. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is up to step in!!
The others up for the part are the likes of Joel Edgerton, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace, and Eddie Redmayne from Les Miserables. Not to mention Zachary Levi has also been pointed out as a contender.
Nobody knows if JGL's been offered the role, but he is most definitely in the (very sexy) pool at least!
Oh, and just because we think he doesn't get the recognition he deserves, we wish someone would approach Ben Foster to audition! He'd be an amazing second choice!
Who would U want to see??
