Benicio Del Toro Joins Guardians Of The Galaxy12.06.13 # News # 6 Comments
Benicio Del Toro has officially joined the cast of Marvel’s intergalactic Guardians of the Galaxy.
Directed by James Gunn, Del Toro is the latest to join the roster which includes John C. Reilly, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker and TV’s Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) as leading man, Star-Lord.
Guardians of the Galaxy is probably the least known superhero set to get their own big screen movie since…well ever. With a team that features a giant tree-like creature and a talking racoon, it’ll be interesting to see how Gunn can work such eccentric characters into the same universe as The Avengers.
Glenn Close is also joining the already strong cast, in an undisclosed role described only as a “primary villain” [Cruella DeVille? - ed.].
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released on 1st August 2014.
