Hot off the news that Chris Pratt is getting hotter for his role as Star-Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy comes an update about which villains three of the other actors will be playing. Den Of Geek, who are usually reliable with this sort of thing, confirm the rumor about Benicio Del Toro playing The Collector, a high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
They also report Karen Gillan is playing Nebula, a space pirate who claimed Thanos was her grandfather (although we’d like to get Maury to verify that). Amy Pond as a space pirate? Yes forever.
Den Of Geek also says Lee Pace will be playing Ronan The Accuser.
Ronan The Accuser, meanwhile, first popped up in Fantastic Four comics, and he’s a member of the Kree, an alien race. He’s got a fair number of superhuman powers, and while originally a villain, he has shown a more heroic side, too.
This fits with the rumor that Pace’s character will flip sides, as Ronan also did in the comics. We’re not 100% sure these rumors are true, of course, but we are 100% sure we’ll see an adorable head tilt.
