Most of the films from Marvel’s Phase Two slate feature leads carried over from Phase One. Chris Hemsworth has already played Thor twice, as has Chris Evans with Captain America, and Iron Man 3 will actually be Robert Downey Jr.’s fourth turn as the character. But that’s not the case for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is currently in the process of assembling an all-new cast.
Last month, the shortlist to play Peter Quill revealed to five contenders: Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace, and Eddie Redmayne. Now Marvel Studios has narrowed the options down to two. Sturgess is the only one of the original group that remains in contention, while Zachary Levi has emerged as a surprise finalist. More details after the jump.
