Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!
Glenn Close will do just fine. Let's not forget "Red" which - while not a huge hit as I recall - didn't exactly have people laughing at it. Plus, Close as leader of the Nova Corps? Doesn't sound anymore silly than, oh... Judi Dench as head of MI6. Let alone Sam Jackson's Nick Fury.
That was Helen Mirren in RED and now RED2, not Glen Close. But ,IMO at least, they're pretty equivalent in age and talent, so your point still stands.
