May 30, 2013

With Iron Man 3 still dominating the box office and Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier currently filming, it’s easy to forget that Marvel has yet another film in production that may outshine them all with a round of left-field casting.

Deadline reports that both revered Oscar-nominated actress Glenn Close and comic legend John C. Reilly will join current cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker in Marvel’s upcoming space opera, Guardians of the Galaxy.

Close is rumored to be playing the leader of the Nova Corps, a super-powered collection of cosmic cops, while Riley is likely to play Rhomann Dey, the Guardians’ Earthly liaison.

Guardians of the Galaxy is currently set for August 1, 2014.
