I can understand coming back to the lack of square jaw etc when we're talking Cap casting...but for Star-Lord casting? Really!?

I think it's worth mentioning that in Guardians of the Galaxy #18, Peter Quill gives his age as 32 years old. So many names being cast on this thread will be 47-48 when this movie comes out (including, admittedly, my original pick, Timothy Olyphant.) While I realize age isn't everything, do we really need to cast Star-Lord a generation older than he is?

I'd go with a Star-Lord who is his 30s when the movie comes out, so born between 1975-1984.

LOL yeah. Ed Burns was supposed to be the next big thing about 15 years ago but he was so dull and unlikeable that his career never took off.

Okay, okay. So I guess that's a big fat N-O on Burns. How about this- remember the rumor a while back that Marvel was meeting with Josh Holloway? That might be interesting...

It's not just Krasinski's jaw, but his face as a whole. He's just a goofy looking guy.

If Timothy Olyphant is too old, so is Josh Holloway.

If, by some chance, they were to put Jack Flag in this movie, Holloway would be great as him.

Jack Flag is probably the Guardian least likely to show up on film, haha

Literally. We'll probably see all of the rest of the 60s and 00s teams before we see Flag.

Yeah, and thank God for that. I didn't much care for his addition. As far as I'm concerned, this is how it should be:

A-TEAM (The people we know for a fact are in the team)
Star-Lord
Drax the Destroyer
Gamora
Rocket Raccoon
Groot

B-TEAM (The people who should be in the first movie)
Adam Warlock
Moondragon
Cosmo

C-TEAM (The people who can join later)
Mantis
Martyr

D-TEAM (The people we don't need)
Bug
Major Victory
Jack Flag

More or less...though if GoTG makes it to a trilogy, I'd like to see the entire 31st century team appear at some point.

Nah, who needs that complication? There're plenty of stories they can do, from Annihilation, the Phalanx Invasion, and the Magus/Universal Church of Truth, to the Kree/Skrull War, the Fault, and the Cancerverse. Why bring in a whole other team from a thousand years in the future who have their own issues completely unrelated to the concerns of the modern era team?

Mantis is probably the one I want to show up the most. Then Warlock.

Warlock really should've been in this one. Maybe he still will be, just not as a team member

And he should be played by a Ewan McGregor/Jude Law -type actor

They've always felt very similar to me. Jude Law is more well known for his pretty boy roles and McGregor is obviously most well known for Star Wars but a lot of their character work feels similar.

Plus they kind of look the same.

Agreed. One of my favorite things about the Guardians of the Galaxy series, actually, is that it's pretty much a rebirth of Adam Warlock and the Infinity Watch, given that it has the entire team except for Pip and Thanos. And while it's a shame Pip wasn't on it, he was more than ably replaced by Rocket Raccoon. The addition of Star-Lord, Mantis, Groot, and the rest to that roster only made things better.

But yes, Adam Warlock IS easily the best Marvel cosmic character, with the possible exception of the Silver Surfer.

Anyway since it seems likely Star-Lord will be the lead, we can look forward to a HUGE push of him by Marvel over the next two years.

Rocket Raccoon will probably get the same
