Guardians of the Galaxy (Fan Cast)

Guardians of the Galaxy (Fan Cast)

MrSteiners with another fan cast, this time, the space avengers, the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!

With the upcoming film by James Gunn coming next August, here is my fan cast for the space adventure movie!


Peter Quill/Star Lord - Chris Pratt
Before Pratt was announced as the space pilot, he was on my personal short list to play him. He can pull of seriousness when needed and can fill the comedic elements nicely as per his stellar performance on Parks & Rec.

Gamora - Zoe Saldana
After playing the lead Na'vi in Avatar, Saldana has the perfect look and tone to play the daughter of the Mad Titan. She could do her own mo-cap and develop the relationship between Quill, Rider and her father nicely.

Drax the Destroyer - Jason Momoa
His role as the raging barbarian Conan, he kind of let us down, but I still really enjoy him as an actor. He could pull off the rage of the Destroyer and with a shaved head and his build, require minimum CGI.

Jason Statham as Rocket Raccoon (voice)
Statham has that British grunge that Rocket needs. With some quick wit and action talent, Statham could give us a very mischievous raccoon.
Andy Serkis as Rocket Raccoon (Mo-cap)
After perfecting motion capture in films such as King Kong and the LotR series, Serkis is perfect for the scoundrel.

Groot - James Earl Jones
After playing the sith lord Vader and the king of the pride lands, Jones could pull this off perfectly.

Richard Rider/Nova
Everyone has been dying to see Ackles in a CBM, and I for one, think he would be perfect for Nova (Nathan Fillion would be better but he stated that he doesn't want to do GotG). He has the wit and the tone to play him and I think he would do it well.

Adam Warlock - Armie Hammer
Hammer is a stupendous actor and I think his interpretation of Warlock would be great. He's young and has the perfect look and talent for the character.

Tony Stark/Iron Man
Not a major part of the film, but he is still in it for the finale. RDJ has been a perfect Stark thus far and he will continue doing so.

I agree with Andy Serkis for motion capture, but my pick for Rocket Raccoon would be Archer or Bob from Bob's Burgers, H. Jon Benjamin, rather than Statham, only because his voice acting skills are top of the line

To give Serkis a speaking role where he only does the physical part is kinda cheap though. He did so many different voices for orcs and uruks, that I imagine he can handle whatever is needed.

Their making a feature film of Guardians of the Galaxy, because?
MrYurMomm - 2/8/2013, 2:53 PM

because they actually have balls to try to reintroduce the sci-fi fantasy space epic genre that has been severely lacking in Hollywood lately?

I'm sick of so many people turning around and saying "Why are they making this", they're making it to broaden their cinematic horizons.

I really enjoy your poster, the cast was pretty cool, and your work on deviantART is really cool. PLEASE keep up the sweet posters and all your other work!

Wow! This is great @Stein!!!!!!!!!!!!
MrCameron - 2/8/2013, 7:28 PM
Not bad. I'd have one of your Rocket Raccon picks (preferably Statham) do both voice and mo-cap though. Makes it more believable than just syncing one actors lines to another's body IMO

Excellent STAR-LORD!

GAMORA is a tall, buxom, curvaceous character,

I really, really don't want to see a COCKNEY ROCKET
RACCOON! It was OK for a kiddie cartoon.
SERKIS is great for the CG BODY but it needs to be
a voice without a BRITISH ACCENT. ROCKET is from
another planet, not ENGLAND. He's an alien, mutated
RACCOON with an advanced intelligence.
MARK HAMIL would be a great choice for the voice,
(ya know, a SPACE OPERA).

Fantastic GROOT voice!

ACKLES would be perfect for a grown-up RIDER.


Quite a fine FANCAST, MR-S@!

- Zoe Saldana is a terrifically original pick for Gamorra, as is Jason Momoa as Drax.
- Well, I'm not the only one who's using a British actor for Rocket Raccoon. But shouldn't Jason Statham do motion-capture? Why relegate him to voice work (even if he was fine in Gnomeo and Juliet)?
- Maybe it's me, but shouldn't Nova be a little younger, since he started that way? Or was that the Sam Alexander incarnation?
- Not sure if I see Armie Hammer as Adam Warlock. She would've made an excellent Star-Lord if Chris Pratt didn't get cast.

An overall great cast!
