Based on the list of frontrunners, it looks like Marvel doesnt want to spend a lot of money on casting. None of those guys are A-listers. Which is fine. But it probably means a younger, less established actor.

I like this because it means more money for everything else. Including next-level CG for Rocket, Groot et al. 175 million might actually be adequate if they're gonna save money on casting. Plus, they don't have to worry about "back end" compensation for their actors or director.

So as I've said before, I don't know much about the character, but some quick Google image searching suggests that he will be wearing a mask most of (if not all of) the time. If that's the case, then The Voice will be key, and out of these candidates, Lee Pace is a big Win in the voice department, imo.

Plus, he's an awesome actor, and as a little bonus, he just happens to be the tallest of all the candidates, too. With a little bulk, he could strike a very imposing figure. I really hope he gets the role.

When Star-Lord is in space or fighting he wears the mask. When he's not in either scenario he doesn't. Pace would be excellent either way.

Agreed. And, also in movies studios want their leading mans face to be seen. Think about how little Cap wore his mask

Actually that is true. Remember how Andrew Garfield's Spider-man had to keep thinking of ways for his mask to fall off?

The mask issue is timeless. Almost every secret identity in the last 10 years of CBM is guilty of it. I agree its silly and sad, but specifically in the case of Andrew Garfield as Spidey, it actually served to help me picture him as Spider-Man. Seeing Andrew do backflip kicks instead of just stuntman in Spidey costume wasn't without its upside.

As far as Pace as Quill, as I've said before I really like it. Quill needs charisma and Pace has it. He may not be very physically imposing, but it makes sense to completely avoid that characteristic for Quill. The comic book panel adds ten pounds of muscle. Pace would be an accurate build in comparison to Hemsworth's Thor and Evans CapAm imo.

This picture helps sell it for me

Lee Pace is most definitely overdue for the same. Pace may be my favored, but Edgerton more than qualifies as second. There are still many MCU characters whose shoes Edgerton could fill.

Star Lord doesn't really wear his mask that much anyway. He only has it on when they are on missions. even then he sometimes has it off.

I don't remember it being explicitly stated but I believe the mask is mostly used so he doesn't suffocate in the far reaches of space (Jack Flag wore a kind of similar mask too, and Rocket wore one of those bubble helmets)

In other words no. From everything I've read on him, its just Peter Quill, Star-Lord. Everyone who needs to know who he is, does.

No. And given that so far none of the MCU characters have had one, I doubt Quill would be the one to change that.

Well I would assume that Widow, being a spy, has some kind of secret life when she's not working. Though if she did have a cover, it would appear to be blown after the events in NY. I guess she can just change her hair again, or start wearing glasses.

Yeah, do u think we will ever get to see a superhero in the MCU have a secret identity?? I think DareDevil will probably be the only one.

Even Spidey in ASM at Sony looks like he might just ditch his mask altogether!

She's not really a good example. For one thing, she basically doesn't have a public ID at all, being a secret agent who doesn't seem to have a major private life. For another, its not clear she actually conceals that Natasha Romanov is the Black Widow, anymore than James Bond conceals that he is 007. Basically, if you are clued in enough to know that either person exists, they don't really try to hide the other half of themselves.

Star Lord Role In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Narrowed Down To Zachary Levi, Jim Strurgess And A Mystery Man.

Quote:
Just before Hollywood shuts down for the holidays, Marvel Studios has narrowed its shortlist of actors to star in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," with Zachary Levi and Jim Sturgess still in contention to play team leader Peter Quill. Better known as Star-Lord, Quill is the son of a human mother and alien father. A charming troublemaker who serves as an interplanetary policeman, Quill leads a rag-tag group of superheroes (Drax the Destroyer, a raccoon named Rocket and a sword-wielding woman named Gamora) in an effort to protect the solar system from an evil alien race. The character isn't as well known as other Marvel superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America or Thor, but Quill is still a plum role for thesps looking to boost their international profile.

Marvel reportedly made test deals with five potential leading men several weeks ago, though "Cloud Atlas" star Sturgess is the only one from that list to remain in contention. Levi was not featured on the initial group, though sources tell Variety that Marvel has a lot of faith in the "Chuck" star, who plays a supporting role in "Thor: The Dark World."

Levi stepped in to replace Joshua Dallas as Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, in the comicbook sequel, and Marvel is said to be impressed with his "Guardians" test and open to continuing their relationship. Marvel has had its eye on Levi for a while, as he had been in talks to play Fandral in the original "Thor" before NBC decided to order more episodes of "Chuck."

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is among the more humorous properties in Marvel's stable, and Levi has proved his comedy chops over the course of five seasons as the star of NBC's "Chuck."

Sturgess has much more experience as a leading man on the bigscreen with starring turns in Robert Luketic's "21," Peter Weir's "The Way Back" and in Julie Taymor's "Across the Universe." He also showed off his range playing multiple characters in WB's "Cloud Atlas" and has also already led a team of guardians, having voiced the lead role in Zack Snyder's animated pic "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole."
While Levi and Sturgess remain frontrunners to play Star-Lord, sources caution that an unnamed third actor may be tested after the holidays. As for the other actors who reportedly inked test deals, none are hurting for work: Eddie Redmaybe is in negotiations to join Wachowski Starship's big-budget sci-fi pic "Jupiter Ascending," while Joel Edgerton recently signed on to play the villain opposite Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender in Lynne Ramsay's "Jane Got a Gun."

Should either Levi or Sturgess come away with the coveted role, CAA will have bragging rights, as it represents both actors.
