Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Now if they cast Chris Pine, Chris Messina, Chris Rock, Chris Tucker, and Chris O'Dowd in some of the upcoming Marvel movies, the confusion will be perfect.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Not a follower of wrestling but other sites have posters calling him uncharismatic and wooden. Which, as others have said isn't far off from being Drax. Still, if they were going wrestler route I'd have preferred Steve Austin.

They should use that guy who played the Golem on Supernatural.

Not a wrestling fan either but that guy sure looks like he stepped off the page of a comic book without any further need for makeup or costume.

Some interesting competitors for the role - Isaiah Mustafa and Jason Momoa - I'd love to see both in some comic book role someday.

We've already kind of seen Mustafa play Luke Cage.

The magnificent Zoe Saldana is reportedly in talks to play Gamora, the Deadliest Woman in the Galaxy.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

That would be an epic snag if they manage to get her in the role.

She'd be the most widely known name in the current cast for sure.

That's great. She was good in Star Trek and Avatar.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I just saw this on Yahoo and was on my way here to post the same. She'd be a huge get for Marvel. The cast is shaping up nicely, though I'm still iffy on Dave Bautista as Drax. I was kinda hoping Jason Momoa would get that role.

My vote for Rocket Racoon would be to render him in CGI with the voice of Steve Buscemi.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

So far you've got the unfunny loser from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler and a talking raccoon.

Yeah, this isn't going to be very good.

Don't le tthe talking racoon throw you. In the issues of Guardians I've read, he's a very engaging character.

The tree is pretty cool, too.

Really.

"I am Groot!"

I think that Rocket and Groot are going to be the merchandisable comic relief, ala Artoo and Threepio.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Ugh, they already hired a extremely mediocre former wrestler who's a black hole of charisma to play Drax. Why do they feel the need to hire another horrible actor as Gamora? Maybe its to balance out the suck among the genders

Well, ok, to be fair I actually like Avatar for the story (I never saw it in fancy 3D) and she voiced an alien well in that. Still, that doesn't balance out her being the worst character in my most hated movie. I was really excited for GotG, but each new cast member announced (or rumored) makes me less and less excited. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Christian Bale is brought in as Rocket Raccoon, complete with his stupid batman voice

Actually, I've been thinking, it would be cool if they got Greg Ellis to voice RR. I'm sure getting a real voice actor isn't something movie makers would want (I'm not sure why I think that, but for some reason thats just the kind of vibe I get from big movies) but he did a good RR in the avengers cartoon and MvC3 video game.
