Off topic, but I'd like to see a parallel X-men universe where Ratner gets vaporised by Phoenix, not Cyclops.

I don't know much about the Star-Lord character admittedly, but from what I've read about him, he seems like a cocky Han Solo type. I've watched enough of Strike Back to know that Sullivan Stapleton can play that type of character in his sleep, so he definitely gets my vote here. The other actors mention are all pretty good too, except maybe for Sturgess. I like Sturgess, but he doesn't seem to really suit this type of character, even though he did play a fairly good action hero in Cloud Atlas.

Richard was great in Captain America btw.. the thing is Chris Hemsworth/Jeremy Renner were supporting actors with little film credits before Thor/Avengers..Lee Pace was also in the recent Twilight (terrible I know) and Oscar buzzed Lincoln so he's already out there to audiences.. not to mention in an action role in the underrated The Fall.. the guy is prime for a breakout and The Hobbit is the film to help boost his awareness

Jeremy Renner was nominated for best Male actor in a leading role at the Oscars. I'd hardly call that a supporting actor. I'd definitely say that puts him above Pace in terms of recognition.

Nothing against Pace. I think he'd do fine, I'm just calling it like I see it on your Renner remark.

granted he did have an Oscar nomination but Hurt Locker was an indie film which didn't originally have studio backing and wasn't hinging on Renner..I know I saw it a full year before it's theatrical release at TIFF before anyone knew what it was..back then it wasn't even getting rave reviews.. it's made around $49 million worldwide.. $17 million domestically making it one of the lowest earning Best Picture Oscar winning films of all time...hard to say Renner was a leading man based on those numbers.. I was just saying Renner was cast as Hawkeye before Ghost Protocol or Bourne Legacy turned out to be successful

Lee Pace is okay, but I have a feeling Joel will come out on top mainly because of Zero Dark Thirty, Warrior and other strong performances in films like Animal Kingdom.. he's a real actor not some Hollywood hot-shot that agents are pushing to keep their jobs.. ala Garrett or Marsden..those two I think are terrible choices in my opinion and will bring John Carter/Green Lantern/Tron Legacy terribleness to Guardians.. I know Gunn is all about casting quirky actors but Marvel is getting better at spotting talent.. Pace could be the next Tom Hiddleston/Benedict Cumberbatch if he doesn't land a role here.. he could make an excellent supporting actor in the Marvel universe..if not Quill I could see him playing Hank Pym, Nova or even Union Jack...

Still there's a certain cache centering around being nominated for the highest honor in American film.

yes, there is..I'll accept I overstepped on Renner.. however, how many of these actors have been nominated for Oscars or even BFTAS? Lee Pace is the only one with a serious award earning the Silver Bear from the Berlin Film Festival for The Good Shepherd..

Joel on the other hand has the greatest amount of action credits which includes King Arthur, Smokin' Aces, The Thing, Warrior and Zero Dark Thirty.. he still has the Great Gatsby coming out in December which could also be massively successful.. as cache goes Joel has it

I'd say Joel is easily the biggest star on the list, and has the most crossover with the over 25 demographic and the female demographic.

People often talk connections in these Marvel films, well Joel would be the third Katherine Bigelow associated actor to show up in the MCU, following the lead of Renner and Mackie.

Bigelow has an eye for talent.. you missed Jessica Chastain who would have had a role in Iron Man 3 if it hadn't been for Zero Dark Thirty

I also love the casting of Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow.. shows they're in a new era of casting

yeah I love the sheer amount of Game of Thrones cast members being looked for roles.. shows Marvel is on the pulse of television and film..I'd love to know if that female lead in Winter Soldier is Sharon Carter or some Madame Hydra/Jessica Drew hybrid.. since it's never been confirmed

It happens. Not so often, but Hollywood does win sometimes.

Well, I certainly hope you're right because the guy deserves it, but as I said, I have my doubts that the role in the Hobbit will be such a breakout character.

And I do agree with Kang that he's not yet nearly where Renner was when he was cast in Avengers. Renner had already had an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a LEADING Role by the time he was cast. Pace has only ever had leading roles tiny little films no one saw and a cancelled TV show. Otherwise, he's had non-standout roles in large ensembles. And I feel the Hobbit is probably more of the same in that regard. Again, I'd love to be wrong about that.

I like Edgerton as well, though, so I'm hoping either Pace or Edgerton get the lead. Marsden, as much I like him in comedies, just isn't much of a leading man, imo, and I find Sturgess to be as bland as dry toast.

I hate admit it but you're right.. Paramount freaked when The Vow and 21 Jump Street tested so well they pulled the G.I. Joe sequel to un-kill Duke and bring him back delaying it's release by a full year..I assume to have Duke back for more films.. he was decent enough in Haywire so I would give him a shot in a supporting role in the Marvel universe.. not so much a lead because he's in fact a robot..

I feel like the Marvel films are becoming more upscale casting-wise over the last couple of years.. even the non-Marvel Studios films are nailing down awesome talent.. the Spider-Man sequel trying to land an Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and X-Men's Jennifer Lawrence looking to get her second nomination for Sliver Linings Playbook..

People aren't mentioning Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton but I'd think he'd make a great Drax.. like Michael Fassbender, landing his first major Hollywood role in the 300 franchise.. taking the role of Themistocles in 300: Rise of An Emipre and will have a part in Warner Bros. Gangster Squad (alongside Anthony Mackie).. he also like Captain America and Hobbit's Richard Artimage had a great stint on the series Strike Back..decent enough supporting roles in Aussie films like Animal Kingdom (alongside Edgerton) and The Hunter.. dude is an action star in the making

At least in Edgerton's case it is deserved. This man can act like few of his generation. Never understood why he didn't have his big breakthrough years ago. He should be leading actor in big Hollywood epics by now, but like with Karl Urban that never seems to happen. It's a pity, but hopefully Marvel can change that

Stapleton is who I'd pick for Quill, but maybe he could be Drax too, I don't know.

Hedlund was great in On The Road. He was very charismatic. Hedlund basically hitchiked around and really got into the character for the part. It was something of a passion project for him.

Tron Legacy seemed like a paycheck/career move for Hedlund because he didn't seem that into to me.

Pace is super talented. He should be a leading man by now. Hollywood is exactly swimming in talented American male actors under 35 right now so I'm suprised his not got big roles yet.

Pace went to high school with Lynn Collins, Matt Boomer and was in Julliard with Anthony Mackie.

Gosling's great. He was great in "Lars," as mentioned above, but he really stood out in "Drive."

But he's one of those actors who has very publicly turned up his nose at superhero films, and has made it clear he's not interested in any of them.
