We’d heard the rumors that Zoe Saldana would play female lead Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy before, but—speaking for myself personally, here—I didn’t want to assume they’d come true lest I jinx that wonderful bit of casting.
Looks like my skepticism paid off, as the casting was not jinxed and Saldana has in fact been confirmed as Gamora. You’re welcome.
Let February 6th, 2013 stand as the day I started desperately trying to remember that Star-Lord has a hyphen in it, for, after much deliberation, Marvel Entertainment has confirmed their choice of Chris Pratt for Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Batman got all of the DC Comics heroes to join him for the sequel to his first LEGO video game, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, but how would you like to sit back, relax, and watch their crazy hijinks without having to lift a finger? Now you can thanks to LEGO Batman The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite…which I had no idea was happening until now (apparently it was announced at NYCC). However, we did know Batman and Superman would be making an appearance in the LEGO movie hitting theaters February 2014 called Lego: The Piece of Resistance (starring Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, and Elizabeth Banks). While a lot of these scenes will look familiar to you, they are straight from the game, it is legit and will be released on blu-ray, DVD and digital download in early 2013. Are you excited?
The live-action/CG animated Lego: The Piece of Resistance is getting built pretty fast. They’ve just added Morgan Freeman and Elizabeth Banks as voice actors. So, will they play minifigs we already know or original plastic people?
A LEGO film seems long overdue considering the toy properties that have gotten Hollywood’s attention over the last few years but will this one be a hit? I’m gonna go ahead and say yes considering this news. The film, titled Lego: The Piece of Resistance, will bring Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time in special cameos. Hit the jump to find out who will be voicing them and whether or not other franchise characters could be joining them!
