How about Kate Beckinsale? She was suggested for Hela and Enchantress on the Thor boards fairly often.

There is going to be someone closer to the a-list coming soon. I think the common ideas are for either the villain or the voice of Rocket. It could be Gamora. Who knows. I've never read much Guardians, so I will be going I to this movie with fairly fresh eyes like a non-fanboy for the other Marvel films.

So I know Nova has been rumored to be appearing, any new casting choices for him? What about Quills father? What about some cardinals for the church? Those are chances to add some star names to the cast. And of course Thanos.

Nova Corps makes a lot of sense to include in some capacity but Nova himself will bring up a lot of questions like "How did a second human get into space?" Also, introducing Nova without an origin story will seem weird. I think showing Nova Corps in Guardians will make it easier for Nova Corps to recruit Rider without just rehashing the Green Lantern story. Not only is it a lame story, but it's already been done on screen in a crappy movie. The MCU could potentially give Nova a different origin that is influenced by Thanos coming to Earth. If Thanos were to live past Avengers 2 then Nova and the Guardians could pursue Thanos throughout the cosmos if they aren't doing something else.

In terms of adding a big name to GotG, I still tend to believe that Robert Downey Jr. will be involved. Marvel tends to sync up its films and comics now, so the addition of Iron Man to the Guardians' book immediately raised my suspicions that the character would be included in the film, as well. Then the Deep Space Armor design surfaced and was suppressed by Marvel; the fact that it is now called Sub Orbital Armor simply makes me think they're trying to throw people off.


This film is in need of a major star hire, and with only Gamora, Thanos and the voice roles left to cast there really doesn't seem to be all that many possibilities. Although I joked about casting Angelina Jolie, Gamora really isn't the kind of role that will attract or even rate a top actress. Thanos is a better prospect, but even there Marvel will be hard pressed to get a name actor. In Downey, however, they have one of the top stars on the planet who is already part of the MCU. Iron Man also has the longest history with Thanos, who debuted in his series. An appearance by Downey could therefore be justified in terms of the characters' history, not merely by box office considerations.

The problem with putting Iron Man in space is where does he get food, water...anything? Unless he figures out how to do wormholes (Einstein-Rosen bridge), Tony is going to have to take a lunchbox and so yeah. Could Iron Man be included in future Guardians films? Sure, but the first one? Nah.

Well if they take a page from the current Guardians book, Fillion doesn't work because he shows up older.

Iron Man doesn't work in Guardians because it doesn't make any damn sense, basically.

I doubt we'll see him long term in possible future Guardians movies, I just think he will be the bridge to connect Earth with the cosmic universe.

-After the Avengers (and general success of CBM's) I'm sure a lot of "name" actors & actresses are trying to get in on the action. I mean Marvel just got Robert Redford for frick sake. That's aside from all the big names they got for their previous films.

-The thing is, they don't have Downey right now. IM3 was the last film on his contract & he won't resign until he sees how IM3 does which will be just before GotG starts filming. GotG being something they've been working on a long time, they wouldn't wait around until the last second to see whether or not RDJ agrees to join.

That's even aside from the $$$ to get RDJ to do it (or if he'd even agree to do it, $$$ that would be much better spent on the rest of the GotG rather than RDJ's pay and having to render IM's scenes.

Didn't Feige say they were going more subtle with the crossover stuff in Phase? I can't think of anything less subtle than shoving IM in another film.

I'm 99.9% sure IM won't show up in GotG, and frankly I don't want him to be. It's unnecessary.

I'm calling it right now. The Big names will play Rocket Raccoon, Thanos, Meredith Quill and J'son of Spartax.

Im talking about when his younger and meets Quills Mum. I wouldn't be surprised if he does get the role considering Gunns and Fillions experience together, it would be a cool cameo.

Fillion as Jason of Spartax would be interesting. He's a bit too young to be Jason now (not old enough to be Pratt's father) and a bit too old to be young Jason, but they can probably work that out with makeup and dye.

Assuming Saldana is locked soon, our Guardians so far:

I like how diverse the actors are, with Bautista with a Greek/Fillipino background and Saldana being Dominican.
