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.

Oh...yeah.



I have never read these, and based on the trailers I'm already more excited for this than both CA2 and Godzilla. I'll be glad if it even comes close to being as fun as those two. Hell of a year for movies for me. I'll probably see more in the theater than the last 5 years combined.

I read somewhere earlier that there'll be a third and final trailer before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (July 11) which is another movie I'm excited to see.

Nice. There are at least 4 more movies this year I will see in the theater. Normally I'm a once or twice a year at most movie goer.

XMen
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Guardians of the Galaxy

Might see Edge of Tomorrow, depending on the reviews.
Ditto for Gone Girl.
Definitely will see Interstellar on November 7th.

I keep reading about the worry over Superhero fatigue, but I don't see any real signs of it. I think we get bad movie fatigue, but I think we actually cut these movies a bit more slack than we do with normal movies, because we're walking into the theater ready to suspend disbelief.

I think this one will have to make its money from word of mouth more so than a lot of the others, though.

To be honest Guardians comes across as more Sci-Fi than Superhero movie, much like Dark Knight was more Crime Drama than your typical Batman Superhero film. I agree that the society is reboot fatigued though, people been complaining about reboots for awhile now.

They're doing what makes genre entertainment work: they're making every movie a little bit different. Thor had heavy science fantasy elements, Thor 2 was completely off the wall, Captain America was a period drama, Cap 2 was a political thriller. Etc.

There is definitely superhero fatigue with Spiderman. Sony isn't exciting anyone with these new films. Plus, its gotten sort of repetitive with so many films in 10 years. Keg is right, Marvel is keeping it fresh because each film feels different from one another.

The Spiderman films have a sort of "sameyness" to them.

The last two Spiderman films have been different. They've just been lousy, IMO.And, with all things seemingly leading to Oscorp for the next one, I don't have much hope that we're going to see a lot of improvements.

I do think most people would love to see what Marvel could do with Spiderman and X-men, but

The reason we're not seeing superhero fatigue is because of Marvel, plain and simple. Now that Nolan's trio is over, and with the possible exception of the X-Men films, every other studio that's making superhero movies is sticking their foot in it.

Yup.
I am so pumped for this flick, and what it means for for the future.
Marvel could blast out super hero movies for the next decade and be nowhere close to the bottom of the barrel.
