Marvel are now into their Phase Two and one of the films we are most looking forward to is the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. While a number of the characters have already been cast, there are still a few left and Marvel have a shortlist of stars that they are eyeing up.
John C. Reilly is linked to the role Rhomman Dey in Guardians of the Galaxy. For those of you unfamiliar with Rhomman Dey, her Dey heads up the Nova Corps on a planet named Xandar. However Xandar gets destroyed by space pirate Zorr, leading Dey to seek revenge. He joins forces with the Guardians from time to time and acts as a liaison with S.H.I.E.L.D., similar to the role of Agent Coluson in The Avengers.
Meanwhile, Rhomman Dey will also have one of his peers in Guardians of the Galaxy, a role which is likely to get taken by either Ken Watanabe, Hugh Laurie or even Alan Rickman, all of who are being eyed for roles by Marvel.
Guardians of the Galaxy will star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and Enzo Cilenti. James Gunn wrote and directs Guardians of the Galaxy, which will hit the big screen on August 1, 2014.
