    A hypester is going around claiming he has a scoop, and that Terrance Stamp is playing the Collector. We'll see how it plays out.

    Then why present that quote from him as if it does matter?

    It's just a coincidence that the director with the cast of least name recognizable actors says that?

    Which Hypester is that? I haven't seen anything on the Guardians threads so far.

    I'm sure we'll find out soon enough who he's playing. My bet's on Korvac, but I'd say the Magus is definitely more likely than Thanos or the Collector.

    At the very least we should find out in June when filming begins and they issue the press release stating principle photography has begun and list the star sheet.

    That said, I'm sure we'll get a rumor out of LR before then, probably in the next couple weeks.

    I'm hoping Pace is Korvac, because having him as the Collector would be a missed opportunity to cast an older, seasoned A-list actor in the part. I really don't want them reimagining the Collector either.

    I don't see Pace as Thanos though. I don't know how much he wants to show his face, but Korvac would provide ample opportunity for Pace to do that while in human form.

    Plus Korvac is strongly associated with the Badoon.

    You mean El Mayimbe looking at a Wikipedia list of GoTG villains and changing his stance 4 times before a reputable source confirms? Probably.

    I didn't say the whole quote didn't matter, I said the part where he was praising Marvel doesn't matter. The part where he says "I think Marvel's been fantastic"

    It's the rest of the quote that matters:
    "they are such a big name and they're able to create such big movies that they really look for the right person for the role instead of just a big star for the role."
    Nothing about this quote is ass-kissy. He's just stating what he has experienced while working with them.

    Exactly! You're actually making my point for me lol. Look at his cast, it's made up of a bunch of moderately known character actors because Gunn believes in getting the right people for roles rather than big names, because Marvel is a big enough name itself.

    lol not really Mayimbe. Remember, LR was the first to report on Batroc and also the first and only source to reveal Redford was playing Pierce before the official casting announcement.

    Is it? I only simply stated that I thought of her as a big name. You said Zoe Saldana's name doesn't sell movies as if it needs to.

    My point was never about how big Marvel is or isn't, but simply that Hollywood types are not paragons of truth. If you believe everything that comes out of Gunn's mouth so be it. To me he's just another director doing what he's expected to do.

    I don't believe everything out of his mouth. But I believe him when he says something as simple and straight forward as Marvel is a big name so he feels safe choosing the actors he thinks are best for the roles. Nobody has given a good reason as to why he would be lying about that, especially considering the cast so far reflects that mentality perfectly.

    I was trying to illustrate that big names sell movies and that Zoe is not a big name because she doesn't sell movies. I thought that was obvious, I apologize if you didn't get that.

    So you're saying that, to you, big name actors are only actors who are able to sell films by their names? Because my thought is that a big name actor is someone that a lot of people know about. Someone who is talked about. There are not many actors out there who can sell a film on their name.

    Jesus, I mean I already told you what I meant. Zoe Saldana is not a big name, sorry. She's not. Tommy Lee Jones is a big name. Jeff Bridges is a big name. Samuel L. Jackson is a big name. I can keep giving you examples of big name actors in supporting roles in Marvel movies. Ask people on the street who Zoe Saldana is, you won't get instant "Yeah I know her!" reactions from them. From your own definition of what a big name is, Zoe doesn't fit. I'm done here, I'll give you the last word since it's obvious that you covet it.

    Is the reason people went to see Star Trek.:o

    In my opinion she is a big name. In your opinion she's not. So there's no issue here. The first part of your response was unnecessary, it was a rhetorical question.

    Nobody went to see Thor because of Anthony Hopkins, they went to see it because of Chris Hemsworth and nobody even knew who he was. Nobody saw Iron Man because of Jeff Bridges or Sam Jackson they saw it because Iron Man is an extremely cool superhero. Nobody went to see Captain America because of Tommy Lee Jones, they went to see it because they knew it was connected to the Avengers. None of those actors you mentioned were able to sell any of the Marvel films. Marvel can carry itself.
