It seems that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the current darling of comic book movies. Still fresh off his role as the pseudo-Robin of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises and the subsequent rumors about a role in the Justice League movie, JGL is now being considered by Marvel for Guardians of the Galaxy, as the leading man Peter Quill.
Peter Quill a.k.a. Star Lord is the offspring of a human mother and an alien father, who is now the captain of a telepathically-controlled spaceship that serves as the focal point of adventures in the Guardians of the Galaxy.
No contracts have been signed yet, though. The competition is tough, with Jim Sturgess and Zachary Levi also being considered for the role. JGL taking the role would be interesting, as we can imagine the folks over at DC wouldn’t be excited at the thought of one of their up-and-comers jumping ship to Marvel.
