Chris Pratt shows off his superhero muscles for Guardians of the Galaxy, plus which actors are playing which villains

07.08.2013

As we get closer to principal photography on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, more and more tidbits of information are coming to light. Some are concrete and others are just speculation, but everything is something when it comes to Marvel news! With Comic Con less than a week away, I am sure we will know for certain what is true and what is not.

First up, we have Chris Pratt showing off his superhero physique courtesy of a photo he shared of himself on Instagram. Much like he did for ZERO DARK THIRTY, Pratt dropped a ton of his comedy/chubby weight to look more like a Marvel character. Pratt will be playing the main character of Peter Quill/Star-Lord. According to the comment on the photo, Pratt says he owes some of his muscles to six months without beer. Damn, I need to give up on the brews!

Next up we have some more news on the trio of bad guys in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. We know that Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, and Lee Pace have all been cast as villains in the movie but we still don't know for sure which are which.

Den of Geek claims to have a source that has identified who is playing who. Here are images of the three purported characters:

According to the source, Del Toro will be The Collector, Pace will be Ronan the Accuser, and Gillan is Nebula. All of these names have been thrown around but many had John C. Reilly as Ronan, not Pace. If these three are the correct roles, they all have ties to Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet which may be what is being set up for THE AVENGERS 2.

Whether that turns out to be the case or not, this still leaves open the door for who Reilly is playing as well as leaves us wondering who will be playing Rocket Raccon, Groot, and even Thanos himself.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY opens on August 1, 2014.

I remember my first introduction to Chris Pratt was in the late-nite comedy Deep In The Valley. I said after that I wanna see that dude in more things. Now look at him, starring in big budget sci-fi action movies, almost brings a tear to the eye.

Kudos for him getting into shape for the role. Now the real question is if he can deliver a really good performance. I hope so.

I guess Del Toro isn't playing Thanos, which means my hunch about Vin Diesel playing him (at least the voice) based on those stories about him meeting with Marvel, could be true.

Gives hope to shlubby bastards everywhere. Well done, Pratt. As one of our own, we salute your accomplishments. Unlike the Depps and Pitts of the world, who have never had to unbutton their pants after a meal or catch their breath after a flight of stairs, you give us hope. Salute.

More likely Avengers 3

Whedon has been quoted as saying that Avengers 3 will be the "big finale" which has caused some people to believe that he is saving Thanos for Avengers 3. Fiege has been quoted as saying that Captain America 3 will "lead into" Avengers 3 which has caused some people to think that Avengers 3 will feature a Masters of Evil line up consisting of villains we will have already seen in Marvel movies.

For various reasons..Marvel's cinematic universe has been a blast to have experienced - I still think none of the movies have come close to blowing me away like the first time I saw, say Aliens, Terminator...and damn, even Speed...but they've certainly been enjoyable to watch. The whole things been fun...and the teasers Marvel put in each film or owning the stories that get put out there has been a big part of it. I have no idea why WB are doing it so wrong when they've got a text book case of

I have no idea why WB are doing it so wrong when they've got a text book case of how do it right happening in right in front of them. Ubisoft clearly have no problem with wanting to go down the Marvel path when it comes to handling their brands for the movie world!

I'm sure Anna Faris is happy with his new look.

I cannot wait for the first trailer.

Secret agent Bert Macklin in Space!

Go Chris Go! Shows how dedicated he is for this role, there's episodes of Parks where he is pretty chubby/over weight so this is impressive to me, more so than Jackman toning up for Wolverine and bitching about his diet in every interview.
