    Default Guardians Of The Galaxy - Five Actors Testing For Role Of Peter Quill, Starlord



    Marvel have reportedly made deals with five actors for them to come in and test for the role of Peter Quill, Guardians of the Galaxy's Starlord. He's the human and, therefore unsurprisingly, the lead character.

    According to Deadline the five actors are Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne.

    But the list of contenders doesn't stop there - Garrett Hedlund, James Marsden and Sullivan Stapleton are all also said to be somewhere on Marvel's hit list.

    Okay, I'm going to call it: Joel Edgerton. Jim Sturgess is my favourite from this list, but I think Edgerton is going to win it.

    Talking of which, here's a nearly was. Joe Carnahan tweeted the following today.
    @thealexlynch97 I think Joel Edgerton would have been tremendous in that role.

    I suppose that could still come to pass if I'm wrong about Guardians, if Disney decide to mount their own Daredevil film, if they hire Carnahan and he still wants Edgerton... and Edgerton agrees.

    Nah. Edgerton is Peter Quill. I'll stake a baked hat dinner on it.

    It's adorable when you try to write about anything comic related
    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

    Peter Lord of Aardman fame? Hope you weren't looking forward to baked hat.

    Sullivan Stapleton please. I love Strike Back, he's got good action savvy.

    Eddie Redmayne would be the perfect Peter Quill (great actor & looks the part)- however, as a second, Sullivan Stapleton is the only one of these choices that seems the correct age (and he is awesome in Strike Back).

    Yeah, he's a very talented actor. It would be a good look, too, I think.
