Casting News for Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy lineup

Karen GillanAmy Pond might be gone from our TV screens, but Karen Gillan is moving on to bigger things. The latest casting news for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy reveals that Gillan has been cast as one of the film’s villains. Lee Pace was previously confirmed as a villain as well, so are these two going to be working together? Details are being kept under wraps at the moment, so feel free to speculate on your own until we hear more.

But Gillan’s casting isn’t the only news. Benicio del Toro–yeah, that’s right–has also joined the cast. There are no details currently on whom he might play, except that it will supposedly be a lead role, and he has been signed on for possibly multiple film appearances. There are also rumors floating around about Glenn Close and John C. Reilly being in talks for roles as well, but confirmation has yet to be released as far as I could find. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released August 1, 2014. What do you think about the latest casting news? Who are you hoping will be cast next? Let us know in the comments below!
