Jim Carrey for Gamora. Just paint him green and he's good to go.

Wes Bentley wouldnt be a bad Star-Lord I guess. Gigandet I only saw in Priest and Easy A and he wasnt really very good in either, dont know the other guy.

Jim Carrey as RR would be awesome as well, dont want Sandler near this personally.

The Rocket choices scare me.

I'm not familiar with any of the Star-Lord actors first hand, though I've heard of all three. Any good?

I've never really seen Gigandet in anything but he seems like more of a fit for Iron Fist than Star Lord.

I forgot that Chris Lowell was in Veronica Mars, and he's been pretty good in the movies subsequent to VM. He would be okay, maybe.

No to Bentley and Gigandet. I've only ever liked CG in Easy A, but only b/c
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
his character gets chlamydia from Lisa Kudrow. It was kind of a funny joke.


A big LOL to all who are posting Jim Carrey as Vera Di Milo. I loved that character.

he didn't really have much action in that one.. Tommy Lee Jones was the heavy..interesting that you mention Batman Forever... since Jones was in Captain America could be that Marvel is looking to give DC film actors a second chance at the genre..maybe they'll be casting Arnold Schwarzenegger and Uma Thurman next..

Lowell is a solid choice in my opinion since he has won a SAG award for The Help...the other two might do well in supporting roles maybe as Nova Corps. or prison guards.. Chris is more on the path as a rising star similar to Hemsworth.. he recently worked with Clark Gregg on the film Light Years.. considering Joss is working again with Clark on Much Ado About Nothing and the S.H.I.E.L.D. series it's possible Whedon saw the film and recommended him to casting..



here he is with the cast of The Help in a Stone/Chastain sandwich after they won at the SAGs..

Iron Fist and Star-Lord are fairly hard to discern physically. Star-Lord has facial stubble and is a year or two younger, but that's basically it.

Very interesting...so you'd say these aren't double face palm worthy?

I'm disappointed that JGL, Lee Pace and Joel Edgerton sound to be out of the running but Chris Lowell isn't a terrible choice.. however, Wes and Cam are uninspired choices that do worry me.. I'm very interested to find out the actual roles Marvel wants for Carrey and Sandler.. since LatinoReview only speculates.. hell they could be up for characters that haven't even been announced yet, everyone is currently in the dark.. Feige has stated the lineup announced back in the summer might not be the final one.. they could add more cosmic characters, I think Carrey could do Bug justice..

Bug is pretty much the last character who would show up in this movie.

again.. Marvel's rules not ours they add anyone in the wheelhouse they want.. plus Bug has an interesting look and Gunn could develop him into an awesome character..


waves of tharks in John Carter but one character like Bug is out of the question.. if they're doing motion capture for Rocket and Groot why not Bug as well?

I highly doubt it but you never know with Marvel.. hell Arnie was going to play Doc Oc in James Cameron's Spider-Man at one point and also was attached to play Sgt. Rock in the 80's..

I'm not sure what your point with John Carter is. I didn't say it was impossible to include Bug, just that they wouldn't.

Bug is basically a non-entity. He's a big bug with vocal tics who's a pervert. That's the extent of his character.

They have at least a dozen or so cosmic characters with unique backstories or deep supporting casts or interesting motivations or fun personalities to pull from. Bug is a nothing character, he's as likely to show up here as Tigra is in the Avengers sequel. He offers nothing of value or interest to the screenwriters and the audience.

I'd say Phyla is down the list too...given they'd have to introduce 20 characters just to make her existence resonate.

True, although if (*fingers crossed*) this franchise goes beyond the one movie I'd expect some member of the Captain Marvel family to show up at some point

Guardians is kind of a weird bastardized franchise. On one hand, it's basically a flash in the pan team that lasted for 2-3 years. On the other, it's a stand in for 45 years worth of cosmic marvel.

This franchise can go anywhere and be anything.
