Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, And Lee Pace’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Roles Revealed


cosmicFilming for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is well underway and he has assembled an incredibly impressive cast. While we know who is in the film, we don’t know who exactly they’ll be playing. Everyone has pretty well figured out who Glenn Close and John C. Reilly will be playing, but folks like Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, and Karen Gillan‘s roles are still up in the air. Well today Den of Geek have revealed who the trio will be playing.

Den of Geek, who have a pretty good record, have a ‘solid source’  that filled them in on the three roles. According to them, Benicio Del Toro is indeed playing The Collector in Gunn‘s film. Lee Pace will play Ronan The Accuser. As you may remember, that character was rumored but there was a big debacle of stories and retractions saying John C. Reilly would be Ronan. They had the right character but the wrong actor. Finally, Karen Gillan is said to be Nebula.

The Collector and Ronan were previously rumored for the film, but Nebula is a new name. Gillan will be playing the villainous space pirate who says she is the granddaughter of Thanos. She took over Sanctuary II, a huge spaceship once under the command of Thanos. She also has ties to the Infinity Gauntlet. With the characters chosen for the film, it seems like a very good possibility the plot will involved the Infinity Gems. Den of Geek also says a full casting announcement will be made at Comic-Con. Looks like we’ll just have to wait a handful of days before we learn who will be Groot and Rocket Raccoon. What do you think?
