Guardians Of The Galaxy movie Jim Carrey Adam Sandler‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is going to be a big superhero film and there is no doubt about that, so it isn’t surprising that some big names are being thrown around, as far as the casting of the film is concerned.  In fact to play the lead role of Star-Lord in the film, no name has yet been confirmed and there is a lot of mulling going around as to who should be cast in that role. Names like Joel Edgerton, Eddie Redmayne, Lee Pace, Jack Huston, Sullivan Stapleton, Garrett Hedlund, James Marsden, Jim Sturgess, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Rosenbaum and John Krasinski have all auditioned and screen tested for the role of Peter Quill/ Star Lord, but none seems to have satisfied the filmmakers yet.

Recently, it was also revealed that Marvel is in talks with Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for the film. Many of you are surely worried to hear this, as it would automatically be assumed by most that these two actors were being considered for the lead, but let’s not forget that the comic book also has humorous characters like Groot (a giant tree) and Rocket Raccoon (a talking raccoon). It could be possible that these are the kinds of parts the two are being considered for. Probably the makers want to move the project forward by at least casting the other roles, while they keep a look out for the actor who would be apt to play Star-Lord. The latest list of probable actors to join the previous list for the role of Star-Lord is: Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell and Cam Gigandet.

But, it could also be possible that it could be someone who hasn’t at Guardians Of The Galaxy movieall been in consideration yet.  For those unaware, Guardians of the Galaxy is basically a team of interstellar superheroes brought together by a superhero named Star-Lord and it’s based in the Marvel Universe.
