With most of the Guardians of the Galaxy super team already formed, the next step in the flick’s casting process is going to be to find some villains for them to fight. Rumors put Thanos as the main baddie, but he’ll need some cannon fodder if he’s going to take on the Guardians, right? It looks like the movie may have picked up at least on of these villains in the form of actor Lee Pace (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey).
If “sources” are to be believed, Pace is in final talks to join the cast and if you put your faith in what Latino Review has to say (those guys do seem to have a pretty good track record for rumors), he’ll be taking on the role of scientist Basil Sandhurst, better known as The Controller.
The Controller’s story is that of the typical science experiment gone bad. Sandhurst ends up embracing technology to overcome the state that he’s left in after his accident. The end result is combination of super strength and the ability to control people’s minds.
Check out Guardians of the Galaxy when it hits theaters next year on August 1st.
