From The Wrap:
Lee Pace ("The Hobbit") is in final negotiations to play the villain in Disney and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
The identity of Pace's villainous character is being kept under wraps.
"Guardians of the Galaxy" finds Quill leading a group of alien superheroes as they protect the solar system from an evil alien race.
The cast currently features Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, WWE star Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer and Michael Rooker as Yondu. Ophelia Lovibond will also co-star in an unknown supporting role.
I'm sure some of you basement dwellers can try and guess who Pace will play; but who knows.
I understand everyone is excited for Guardians of the Galaxy and I'm am too, as well as somewhat skeptical.
It is, however, the only "fresh" Marvel movie we're getting in the near future, so it could be Star Wars or Green Lantern. Who knows.
Marvel's Guradians of the Galaxy comes out August 1 2014.
