Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

After countless shortlist stories and rumors concerning who would play Star-Lord in Marvelís Guardians of the Galaxy, the search for the lead role is finally over, and fittingly the actor is someone who never appeared on any of the aforementioned lists. Deadline reports that Chris Pratt has been tapped to play Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, a character who was born of a human mother and alien father, and is a master strategist and combat expert who wears an ability-enhancing suit and pilots a psychically-linked ship. As Guardians features a cast of strange and cosmic characters, Quill was an important role to fill because he will likely act as the audienceís introduction to the vast, unfamiliar Guardians world. Hit the jump for more.

There were plenty of actors rumored for the role that made a lot of sense (John Krasinski, Zachary Levi, etc.), and Deadline notes that Marvel made test deals with Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Lee Pace, and Eddie Redmayne, but Chris Pratt actually seems like a perfect fit. His comic timing is excellent as evidenced by his work on NBCís Parks and Recreation, and heís shown his talent on the dramatic side with Moneyball and 2012ís Zero Dark Thirty, for which he also proved that he can beef up for a role if need-be.

Looking back on the previous shortlists and taking Pratt into consideration, itís clear that writer/director James Gunn is planning on injecting a good amount of humor into Guardians of the Galaxy. A rumor surfaced recently that Marvel was looking at possibly tapping Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to do voice work in the film (one of the guardians is a talking raccoon), so Iím interested to see the tone that Gunn settles on for the finished film.

With the role of Star-Lord secure, Gunn and Marvel now look to filling out the rest of the cast, which includes the powerful Drax the Destroyer, a giant tree named Groot, the aforementioned Rocket Raccoon, and the female lead Gamora. The story is also rumored to involve the villain Thanos. Expect to hear more soon as production gears up to begin later this year. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in 3D on August 1, 2014.

nah. I really have no desire to see it again.

Out of all the Marvel flicks, I think I have liked Iron Man 1, CAptain 2 and Thor the best.

Wow. Interesting. IM1 was good, but IMO Marvel films are much better and have come a looking ways since those first two of IM1 and Incredible Hulk.

Hulk I can see, but Iron Man stands up.

Guardians of the Galaxy was pretty, to be sure - it managed to be a space opera without ever losing its sense of 'realism'. That is, unlike a movie like Avatar, I never saw something that made me roll my eyes and think, even subconsciously, 'that's fake' - and considering it had a talking raccoon and a giant tree, that's a pretty strong statement.

But it had its problems. Big ones. Big ones, with the plot and the predictability, and the predictable formula and the shallow villains, and with the giant deus ex machina at the end. Also, with the Michael Rooker, who did take me right out of the action every time Merle - err, I mean Yondu - was on screen.

It sure was good, but not the best.

Maybe try going to see it instead of trying to read a plot synopsis.

I knew nothing of this prior to seeing it... I noticed 90%+ on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes...

the movie was fun, campy... didn't take itself too seriously... a goofy fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.... in that shut off your brain kind of way.

Looking forward to the sequel.

Gamora is ADOPTED.

It probably is Eros.
