Glenn Close Cast in Guardians of the Galaxy!
It’s been a busy week for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Not only was it announced that John C. Reilly was in talks to play Rhomann Dey, but yesterday, it was announced that Glenn Close will be playing some sort of leadership role in the Nova Corps.
I’m not sure what’s going on with this movie, but it looks like they’re cramming a ton of new stuff into this movie, and I, for one, am a little worried about it. Of course, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close are phenomenal actors, but introducing a crapload of stuff, all at once, could spell disaster. The Guardians of the Galaxy are going to be difficult enough to bring to the big screen on their own, without the addition of the Nova Corps. If these rumors are to be believed, I’m guessing it’s Marvel’s way to launch a few more projects (probably a stand-alone Nova movie), but if it were up to me, I’d focus on one set of characters before bringing in another.
The movie is set to start shooting in a few weeks, so hopefully, some of this stuff will get cleared up. But in the meantime, I’ll be scratching my head wondering just what the hell Marvel is doing.
