Ophelia Lovibond joins Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

04.22.2013

British actress Ophelia Lovibond had joined the cast of James Gunn's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY in an unspecified role. Lovibond saddles up with the already cast Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Michael Rooker in the Marvel Phase Two film, which focuses on a group of interstellar warriors fighting the forces of evil throughout the galaxy. Although we don't have Lovibond's character name, THR had a small snippet of detail on who she'll be playing:

Details of Lovibond’s role are scarce but it is known that she will play an aide to a near-immortal being called The Collector, who gathers artifacts and beings in the hopes of saving them from a foretold galactic annihilation.

Hmm. I'm not all that familiar with The Collector (who has yet to be cast), but the character does have a daughter, Carina Walters, whom he uses to aide in his quests. Pure speculation right now, but it does seem to add up. That character has fought against the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, THOR, IRON MAN, and more, so it fits squarely within the current Cinematic Universe. We'll see.

A June start date is set for production to begin in England.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is set to debut on August 1, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: I think the casting of Rocket Racoon (as his voice, anyway) is the most concerning bit of casting. Any favorites on your list for that role?

Greatest joke in the world would be...

...if Marvel came out and said "Hey, we were just f***ing with you....we aren't stupid enough to make this movie. Can't believe you FELL for it. I mean, just LOOK at the B-list crew we got to act in this thing. And a Raccoon? A FUCKING RACCOON? You guys REALLY thought we'd were gonna gamble $100 Million on a talking fucking RACCOON? What are we gonna make for $100M next, Bullwinkle? (hahaha...evil laughter as they go off and shoot Doctor Strange instead)....."

Every now and then someone comes up with a truly inspirational choice for a specific role on this website…that I would not have thought of in a million years. Hats of to you iceman1607. I could picture or hear Danny Devito now. Anyone else being given the role might now be a let down for me.

Extra tidbit

Just watched the Lorax, it made me like the idea of Danny Devito for the voice of Rocket Racoon. And the guy's got experience being the short fuzzy member of a team.

Am I the only one who has been underwhelmed by the cast so far? It's not like I was expecting Tom Cruise or something, but compared to all the other Marvel films the cast here is obviously not in the same league.

Very excited for this film.

As for the extra tidbit, Willem DaFoe, Timothy Olyphant, Denis Leary, Sam Rockwell,, or Josh Holloway for Rocket Raccoon.

Looking good so far

So far I like the casting news for the movie, except for Zoe Zaldana.. I like her as an actress, but there is no way this skinny girl can play Gamora, unless she bulk up like the Rock on his new movie Pain and Gain.. And I hope that the voice for Rocket Raccoon will go to a serious actor, not Jim Carrey or some other comedians.. Rocket raccoon is a military strategist, a weapon expert and a team leader, not a freakin comedy relief.. Give the Raccoon some respect! :D

Tidbit

Michael Rooker (it was never actually confirmed outright by Gunn that he's playing Yondu...), or Jason Statham. I feel that RR needs a gruff voice.

Extra Tidbit:

Jim Carrey. Prospect of him working with James Gunn in a Marvelverse movie is too good to pass up.
