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.

Looks interesting. Definitely sort of a light hearted trailer. Didn't like the choice of music, but I guess that's the tone they wanted.

So far looks much better than I figured it would be...

Based on what I've seen so far, I expect Guardians to be better than DC's Justice League movie.

Not to piss on those who might be entertained... but any superhero flick featuring a raccoon is just not gonna earn my money.

I'm usually just as big a sucker for hero's as anyone, but a coon? c'mon.

Looks more like Pratt is the lead based on the trailer?

Don't sell yourself short. Rocket Raccoon might end up being one of the best parts of the movie.

I will say this - This movie is going to attract mainly the comic book nerds first, then the people who enjoyed the Avengers. Looks like a fun way to spend a couple of hours to me.

Pratt is the lead, but Rocket is clearly there to be the breakout character, the Han Solo to Pratt's Luke.

That just wasn't a well-made trailer; they took too much time try to teach people who the characters were rather than just show them doing their things. Hopefully the movie won't be as uneven and wooden, and hopefully the whole movie isn't in that dingy prison.

I honestly haven't even watched a trailer, all I needed to see to dissuade me is a picture with a ****ing raccoon walking in the lead.

If you guys have fun with it, God bless... but this isn't for me.

Did you like Avengers? And if you did, did you stay through the credits to get a glimpse of the baddie behind the scenes? If so, then this movie will tie directly into that forming storyline.

The trailer is only a few posts back and you can't even be bothered to watch a few seconds? Well here's to you then!



Barret, thanks for the gif. I have a feeling I'll be using it a lot!

LOVED that movie, one of the best ever IMO, don't remember hanging out through the credits though.

Are you saying the raccoon ties into the Avengers?
