Joseph Gordon Levitt may star in Guardians of the Galaxy

The unstoppable "Boy Wonder" Joseph Gordon Levitt has apparently been thrown into the running for playing what is most likely to be the central role in James Gunn's and Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. JGL is now on the short-list of actors who have been offered a chance at the role of Peter Quill, aka Starlord, the leader of the Guardians who discovers the heritage of the alien father he didn't know he had. His closest competitors appear to be Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas) and Zachary Levi (TV's Chuck), though there are several other names that have been mentioned.

I'm not a huge comic book guy (ironic, yes?), so my knowledge of the Guardians characters is just about nil, but from what I've seen of the universe and the fact that James Gunn is directing the film, I'm assuming it's going to be pretty wacky. Of course, JGL grew up doing wacky on Third Rock from the Sun, so I've no doubt he's capable of the comedic subtleties of sharing a scene with a space raccoon. The question is, considering where he is in his career (the top of the world), is this the right move for him?

See Guardians of the Galaxy early and free

Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my most anticipated Marvel movie in ever. It looks like it's finally shaking up the stale franchises for good. And if not, at least it's got a great cast at the center. So for some lucky fo...more

Here's a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer featuring Michael Rooker

I'm going to be upfront with you all. I have not seen this trailer for myself. In trying to keep as much mysticism toward the first original Marvel film in years as possible, I've only seen the first two trailers as later on...more

Second trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

First good look at Star Lord in all his glory

We're plenty excited for Guardians of the Galaxy, especially after the debut trailer kicked so much ass. The one thing we hadn't really seen yet though was Chris Pratt's Star Lord in his well known mask. We're guessing he won...more

First Guardians of the Galaxy clip shows us what we've been waiting for

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'M HOOKED ON A FEELING, I'M HIGH ON BELIEVING. For those who don't know, this is the first we've seen of Star-Lord with his trademark mask in action. Not a lot of new footage outside of those few, glorious seconds, but it's enough to make my day. August 1st is so close but so far away. [via Collider]more
