Michael Rosenbaum Also Testing For ‘Star-Lord’ Role In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

The latest actor revealed to be in contention for the lead role, Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord, in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is Michael Rosenbaum, according to the Smallville Lex Luther actor himself.



Following reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined the ever-growing shortlist of actors who are circling the lead role in Marvel's forthcoming space epic Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems someone else recently tested for Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord also. Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum took to Twitter, including director James Gunn's handle, to announce that he, too, is in the mix.



Like Joseph Gordon-Levitt per The Dark Knight Rises, Michael Rosenbaum is best known for portraying a DC character: Lex Luther on The CW's Smallville TV series. And the 40-year-old actor previously worked with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn on his PG Porn short film series. A mystery actor was mentioned last month, when Zachery Levi and Jim Sturgess became alleged front-runners, who was said to be tested for Star-Lord after the Holidays. And now that the New Year has arrived, Rosenbaum is likely who those reports were referring to. What do you think?





Marvel Studios presents “Guardians of the Galaxy”—the big cinematic event exploring an interstellar super hero team-up, featuring Marvel characters Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While story details are under wraps, the film is rumored to lead with a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.

Directed by James Gunn from a screenplay by James Gunn, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is based on the Marvel comic book series “Guardians of the Galaxy,” first published in 1969 and revived in 2008. While a director and ensemble cast have yet to be announced, “Guardians of the Galaxy” will assemble on August 1, 2014. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will distribute the film. In addition to “Guardians of the Galaxy”, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on other iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and the currently-untitled sequel to “Marvel's The Avengers,” the third highest grossing film of all time, on May 1, 2015.
