I've been saying that as well. Vance Astro makes the tie-in/crossover for the audience a bit easier...in theory anyway.

Will the Chitauri appear in GotG?

Not to surprised if this is true. Like they say in article they came from Thanos in The Avengers, and Thanos is in GotG.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Casting rumors!

Marvel, after reportedly hiring James Gunn as director, has begun the effort to cast Peter Quill, the Guardians leader who is the offspring of a human mother and an alien father. I’m hearing that Marvel is making test deals with a small group of leading men. Here are the names: Zero Dark Thirty‘s Joel Edgerton, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, Cloud Atlas‘s Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace (who has roles in both Lincoln and The Hobbit), and Eddie Redmayne from Les Miserables.

I’ve confirmed all of them are in contention, but can’t say definitively that this list is all inclusive as I’ve also heard of interest from or in Garrett Hedlund, James Marsden (already played Cyclops in X-Men but then again Chris Evans played Fantastic Four‘s Human Torch before landing Captain America) and Edgerton’s Animal Kingdom costar Sullivan Stapleton.
Lee Pace and Jack Huston are both terrific actors, would love to see them in something. But of this whole list, Mardsen is the one who seems primed for a "team leader" role that is more substantial than what he was allowed in X-Men.

Lee Pace is the guy from Pushing Daisies, right? He'd make a pretty good Starlord.

Yup, he was Ned the Pie Man.

Come to think of it - he might be good for Warlock! He's tall and does weird well.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Marsden it would seem is the name with the most marquee value AND genre cred. Having, as mentioned, X-Men under his belt AND supporting role in Superman Returns.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

That's a pretty good list, although Eddie Redmayne seems a bit young, maybe. It hink I'd most like to see Lee Pace in the role, he was very good in Pushing Daisies and The Fall.

Yeah, of those actors Pace is my favorite, so I'd have to go with him.
EDIT: Aaaaand apparently James Gunn is a total asshole.

I don't know. The Warlock I remember looked like somebody from a Charles Atlas ad.

People really do get torn up over the stupidest things. People want him fired for some off-color language comedy on his site from last year? Weird.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I don't like what he says on there in a lot of the entries, but I don't see why he would need to be fired from GotG. Just because I don't like what he says doesn't mean he doesn't make good movies. It's not like he's Roman Polanski or anything. He just doesn't seem like a person I'd want to hang out with.
I actually didn't notice where it said the poll was that old, it does make the whole thing even more of an over reaction.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

That poll was just James Gunn being James Gunn. There was nothing particularly shocking in there to anyone familiar with (public) persona or his work. I can only assume Marvel knew who the guy they were hiring was.
