Lex Luthor or Jim Halpert Possibly to Star in Guardians of the Galaxy?

There have been a ton of Guardians of the Galaxy casting rumors floating around as of late. By my count there’ve been seven actors reportedly in contention to play the lead role of Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), the latest being Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And now you can add two more to the list: Michael Rosenbaum, best known for playing Lex Luthor in Smallville, and The Office‘s John Krasinski. And Drax the Destroyer has gotten in on the rumor mill as well, with three actors reportedly vying to play him.

Who Should Really Be Allowed to Replace Bruce Campbell in The Evil Dead?

So, they’re going to remake The Evil Dead. That was hard enough to deal with, but once its original star, Mr. Bruce Campbell, gave us his blessing that assurance that this was going to be a lovingly-made project, it was easier to accept.

Isaiah Mustafa Meets With Marvel Over Luke Cage

Isaiah Mustafa has made no secret of his fervent desire to play Luke Cage, the Harlem-based crime-fighter who, unlike most other Marvel superheroes, mostly fights regular old criminals instead of their costumed counterparts. He told Superherohype.com:

Luke Cage has a lot going on. He’s this man, he’s got all these powers and abilities and he can use them to save whatever major city, but instead of doing that he uses them to help Harlem. He wants to fix his neighborhood, and that’s what’s so admirable to me. Instead of leaving and going someplace bigger, he stays right where he needs to be and tries to do the best that they can.”

According to Mustafa, the ball is in Marvel Entertainment’s court at this point.
