A Former Superman May Have Tested For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead Role
While we don't know who it is exactly yet, an actor who has previously played the Man Of Steel is said to have tested for the role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord in Marvel Studios' space epic Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Another day, another candidate for the lead role of Guardians Of The Galaxy. This week, we heard that the latest actors to be in the mix for the role of Star-Lord are Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville), and John Krasinski (The Office). And before that, we heard multiple names connected to the part, including Zero Dark Thirty's Joel Edgerton and Thor: The Dark World's Zachary Levi. Now, Moviehole has tweeted that yet another actor may have tested for the role of Peter Quill, and while it doesn't say who exactly, it reveals that a former Superman is on the "huge" shortlist.
Of course, this "former Superman" is most likely either Brandon Routh (who played the Man Of Steel in 2006's Superman Returns) or Tom Welling (who starred as Clark Kent in The CW's Smallville). Interestingly, Welling was rumored to be up for the role of Dr. Strange last year, but that ended up being debunked. With all of these actors testing for the Star-Lord role, fingers crossed we get an official announcement soon. Who do you think should play Peter Quill?
Guardians Of The Galaxy is set to hit theaters August 1st, 2014.
