UPDATE: John C. Reilly NOT confirmed as Ronan the Accuser in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

Jun. 14, 2013by: Paul Shirey

UPDATE: Well, it looks like Deadline has messed up their comic book characters. Apparently, Reilly will NOT be playing Ronan the Accusser, but the previously rumored Rhomann Dey, leader of the Nova Corps. Does that mean that Ronan the Accuser isn't in the film? Not at all. He simply hasn't been named or linked to an actor...yet.

Last month our inside source revealed that Ronan The Accuser would be in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY as the lead villain and today Deadline is confirming not only that he is in the film, but that actor John C. Reilly will be portraying the Kree ruler. Although not confirmed as the "lead" villain (although it's likely), it appears that Ronan The Accuser could potentially have a large role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as he is one of the big players in the overall scheme of the "galactic" world of the comics, aligning (or fighting) alongside previously named villains Thanos and The Collector.

So far, actors Benicio Del Toro and Lee Pace have been cast in roles for the film, but the details of those roles has been kept close to the chest. Some have speculated that Del Toro would be Thanos or Rocket Raccoon, while Pace has been rumored to be playing one of the undisclosed villains. One thing is for sure, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is shaping up a hell of a cast for an untested property. I'm optimistic and excited to see what they do, especially with James Gunn at the helm, who I think will bring the right amount of quirk and action to make this an exciting entry in the Marvel films stable.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Beautista, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, and Ophelia Lovibond gets galactic on August 1, 2014.  

Extra Tidbit: Do you think John C. Reilly can pull off a serious villain role or is he best off in comedic roles?

Reading news about Guardians of the Galaxy helps me understand what it's like for people who aren't into comic books reading news about super hero movies. I have no idea who these characters are, why they're important, or what it means that so-and-so is playing them. Like a sea captain encountering a rival ship that's being too overzealous with their warning shots, everything is constantly going over my head.

James Gunn wrote that Scooby Doo movie, didn't he?
Not sure what to make of that.

Another "just check out".... remember his turn in Gangs of New York, while not being huge, I think it showed he has the physical presence and attitude to do villian

I didn't see that one coming. I'm still holding out hope on Del Toro being Thanos.

good actor

we know he can do drama very well (Chicago, The Aviator, We Need to Talk about Kevin) but i'm not sure about a straight up villain. I have faith in the guy but it still sounds weird to me

"I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me."

Well no shit huh?

Reilly can pull off a wide range of roles, if you dont think so check out his IMDB, I like the casting and think he can pull it off, would love to see him up against the Avengers at some point
