Den Of Geek's source has provided confirmation of two much-speculated-upon roles in Marvel's space set Guardians Of The Galaxy, which is currently into its first week of shooting in the UK. The site first "confirm" our earlier SCOOP (thanks guys) that Benicio del Toro will play The Collector, but also reveal that Lee Pace is definitely going to be playing Ronan The Accuser (a member of alien race The Kree, who has the potential to switch sides in the movie), and Karen Gillan will be playing Nebula (a space pirate who claims to be the granddaughter of Thanos). These are the roles I think most fans assumed they'd be playing, but now that it looks to be confirmed, what do you think?

I do not approve of the Ronan one. Pace is too pretty and I wanted him to be Nova or Adam Warlock. :(
LucasMend - 7/8/2013, 8:01 AM
I just have one question: Will we see Karen Gillan in a sexy outfit? :P
Jolt17 - 7/8/2013, 8:01 AM
Pace as Ronan? Wow.
marvel72 - 7/8/2013, 8:03 AM
can't f*ckin wait to see this,apart from the avengers sequel this is my most anticipated movie of phase 2.
Omarvls - 7/8/2013, 8:04 AM
If I could only see one
either
Guardians of the Galaxy or Star Wars Episode 7
I would choose the Raccoon
ATrueHero1987 - 7/8/2013, 8:06 AM
This is great. I like getting GOTG news!
LordMushu - 7/8/2013, 8:06 AM
I'm pretty sure Nebula is Thanos' grand daughter NOT daughter like the article states
mawilli4 - 7/8/2013, 8:07 AM
I thought Infinity Gauntlet said Nebula was Thanos' granddaughter.. I could be wrong though.
mawilli4 - 7/8/2013, 8:08 AM
@LordMushu my thoughts exactly.
thewonderer - 7/8/2013, 8:10 AM
Marvel better advertise the shit out of this film.

Make the MCU connection very clear. Hell, attach an avengers 2 teaser!!!!

Be smart about it
Logan5 - 7/8/2013, 8:14 AM
This has a lot of potential and I want this to rule next summer! Hope they let the film have its own wings and not be too tied down to a brewing Avengers storyline. GOTG or GOT'GTFO!
Omarvls - 7/8/2013, 8:16 AM
Like I've said in the Past Marvel's Master Plan is to have TWO Franchises in ONE Shared Universe for example

AntMan/Dr.Strange/Black Panther Leads to Avengers 3

Nova/Mar-vell/Adam Warlock Leads to GotG 2

They would have to release 3 movies a year which it is starting to look like

We still dont know which Ronan Pace is playing(the article just gives a rundown on the character history and not their roles in the film), could be the ultimate version where he's the son of Thanos and not Kree, I honestly think that's the more likely version.
Ramiel - 7/8/2013, 8:16 AM
Sweet! I can't wait for this movie.
marvel72 - 7/8/2013, 8:18 AM
i forgot to add this to my last comment,nebula is thanos grand daughter not daughter.

@ thewonderer

all they need to do is put "from the studio that brought you the avengers & iron man 3" on the poster people will go & see it.

even advertise it as the avengers in space or the avengers of the future.

Most anticipated movie for 2014
SageMode - 7/8/2013, 8:23 AM
If true.....AWESOME. Lee Pace as RTA is just great.
osideous - 7/8/2013, 8:23 AM
GOTG WOOHOO!!!!
marvelstudios - 7/8/2013, 8:24 AM
Believe it or not I'm looking forward to this more than Avengers 2. Long live MCU!!!
drfate - 7/8/2013, 8:24 AM
That's all well and good; but here's what needs to be said: Marvel, I know you're reading. GIVE ME MY STARJAMMERS AND SHI'AR. Do it now, do it quickly...before I get upset!
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 7/8/2013, 8:26 AM
Man, Marvel has their shit together. Depressing time for DC fans. Not that I'm not a Marvel fan, I'm just a bigger DC one.
Matchow - 7/8/2013, 8:32 AM
I hope this movie is awesome. It sounds it.
LordMushu - 7/8/2013, 8:35 AM
That's better!! Can't wait for this film!
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/8/2013, 8:38 AM
Cant see Pace as Ronan. I imagined Ronan character to be made in the vein of Engineers in Prometheus.

Pace would be awesome Adam Warlock thou.
caroldanvers - 7/8/2013, 8:38 AM
so, i know nothing about gotg because they always seemed boring to me for some stupid reason idk don't ask me
if karen is nebula does that mean there's a possibility of her showing up in the next avengers movie too or...

but wohoo finally i was way too curious about these two
Minato - 7/8/2013, 8:40 AM
Could Rocket Raccoon be considered one of the top 10 tactical minds in comics. Batman, Captain America, Cyclops, who else?
Minato - 7/8/2013, 8:42 AM
@MartianAbominatinClone
Youre not alone in thinking that but WB/DC doesnt give a flying f**k so we get what we get.
LinkZero21 - 7/8/2013, 8:42 AM
Pace = Nova

can't speak for everyone but I love Adam Warlock cuz he's a sneaky basterd who see's all angles
TheBeard - 7/8/2013, 8:52 AM
I really hate the ultimate version of Ronan, hope that's not what this is. That aside, Karen Gillan is going to own as Nebula. Sexy Sexy Sexy
MarvelDCfanboy - 7/8/2013, 8:52 AM
this movie described in one word:

EPIC!

:)
dellamorte1872 - 7/8/2013, 8:52 AM
I'm confused I thought GAMORA was related to THANOS as well are they dropping that in favor of NEBULA being related to him?
novaprime - 7/8/2013, 8:53 AM
Amazing News!!! HAAPY PACE IS A GREAT ACTOR, EVEN THOE I WAS HOPI.H FOR A MUCH STRONGER LOOKING ACTOR FOR THE RONAN ROLE. I REALY THOUGHT PACE WAS PLAYING WARLOCK OR NOVA!! . I REALLY HOPE NOVA/ RICHARD RIDERS IN THIS FILM. HOPE TO SEE WHOS PLAYING HIM ALSO.
dellamorte1872 - 7/8/2013, 8:53 AM
Also I liked RONAN blue but if he's not his regular skin tone he'll be purple to visually link to THANOS
superotherside - 7/8/2013, 8:54 AM
Can't wait. Wish we could get more information about it though. Maybe something will be revealed in the coming weeks.
CharlesLord - 7/8/2013, 8:55 AM
i cant wait to see how ronan looks
92Marvel - 7/8/2013, 8:58 AM
I always thought Benicio del Toro was playing the collector he looks the part. I love everything about this movie so far my most anticipated movie.
crazycharliemma - 7/8/2013, 8:58 AM
would have loved her to be death
TheBeard - 7/8/2013, 8:59 AM
@dellamorte1872 Gamora is thanos adopted daughter, he found her and raised her to be a killer basically and do his biding.
JCGREASEYVII - 7/8/2013, 9:00 AM
Are they going to wait until Comic Con to announce casting of Rocket? Seems like that is a possibility.
