The production on Guardians of the Galaxy has just kicked off in the UK, and we're getting the latest on who is playing who in the new movie. A "solid" source close to production is confirming to Den of Geek that some of the casting we had speculated about in the past was dead on. First up, they're reporting that Benicio Del Toro is in fact playing one of the oldest sentient beings in the Marvel Universe, The Collector. The Collector got his name from his obsession with collecting special artifacts that he thinks will help him re-seed the universe if it should ever be annihilated. And if you read the comics, you know that some of these artifacts have been known to also include members of The Avengers team. This source is also confirming that Lee Pace will definitely be playing Ronan The Accuser. Now, Ronan is a member of the alien race, The Kree, and he has not only made appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy but also in the Fantastic Four, and in The Inhumans. Ronan is mostly a villain, but has the potential to flip sides, so it will be interesting to see what Marvel does with his character in this film. And, finally, the source is saying that Doctor Who star, Karen Gillan, will be playing space pirate and supervillain, Nebula, a character who has called herself the granddaughter of Thanos. So, from the way it sounds, the villainous team is shaping up nicely with these three baddies on board, but everyone will be excited to see how and if their stories will set up for the inclusion of Thanos in some of the other Phase 3 films.
