Movie News: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Ditching DC for Marvel?

January 3, 2013

Having starred in hit movies like Dark Knight Rises, Looper and Premium Rush in 2012, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has perhaps just closed out the biggest year in his career.

And what does 2013 have in store for the current Hollywood “it” guy? While several Tinsel Town rumor mills have placed Gordon-Levitt in the Bat Suit for the upcoming Justice League movie alongside the likes of Superman and Wonder Woman, an even more surprising revelation was reported earlier this week.

According to Deadline.com, Gordon-Levitt is up for the lead role of Peter Quill a.k.a. Star Lord in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film, which will tie into their other post-Avengers films leading up to Avengers 2 in 2015.

While Gordon –Levitt joins a long list of other actors who have reportedly auditioned for the part including Joel Edgerton, Jim Sturgess and Lee Pace, his name would certainly anchor the far out film with a bit of star power.

Guardians of the Galaxy comes to theaters August 1, 2014.
