For a movie that’ll feature a lot of CGI characters, Marvel sure is putting together a damn fine cast for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.
First we had Chris Pratt (PARKS & RECREATION, ZERO DARK THIRTY) land the lead role of Star-Lord. Then they cast big guy Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer. Now THR says Zoe Saldana is in talks to play Gamora, the tough green-skinned assassin. The last of her species, Gamora was raised by Thanos, the smiling villain you saw at the end of THE AVENGERS. See, we all have family problems!
Now that Gamora and Star-Lord are taken care of, Marvel still needs to find actors to voice Groot, the giant talking tree, and little bad ass Rocket Raccoon. God, this movie is going to be awesome.
Seriously, James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated films in production and definitely a major reason to be excited for Marvel’s Phase Two slate of movies. Can’t wait to see this rag-tag, quirky group of heroes do intergalactic battle.
