Production is gearing up @ England's Shepperton, Pinewood and Longcross Film Studios, for director James Gunn's Marvel Studios' feature, "Guardians Of The Galaxy", with the film's 'working title' now revealed:
"I feel a part of the Marvel universe and its characters," said director Gunn.
"I feel lucky to be entrusted with helping to create a whole new section of the Marvel cinematic universe - not just one planet or society but Many.
"There is no part of me that doesn't appreciate people's excitement for the possibilities 'Guardians' represent - there is no one more excited than I am..."

The guys at Joblo have posted a handful of Disney movie scoops, with some notably surrounding Marvel's upcoming ventures. Dropping details about the base of operations for Guardians of the Galaxy, the report also affirms a bit of speculated news on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Moving along, despite actor John C. Reilly recently boarding the James Gunn-directed film as Rhomann Dey, it seems the Universal weapon-wielding character known as Ronan The Accuser will still be a main villain in Guardians of the Galaxy. And the mad Titan Thanos will indeed "play a large role in the overall scheme of things." More interestingly, the report goes on to reveal that the Guardians will "operate out of their base of operations, called Knowhere, a space station with the ability to teleport throughout the universe." This location, which has been described as an "inter-dimensional crossroads and scientific observatory," is located inside »
Depending on where your opinion of "Man of Steel" lies, you may have spent the past week singing the praises of Zack Snyder for being the director to finally get Superman right. His take on the last son of Krypton is certainly worth discussing, but another one of his movies, his first, deserves a second look this week for an entirely unrelated reason.
It was nearly ten years ago that Snyder and his screenwriter, future "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn, took the set-up from George Romero's classic and adapted it lovingly into a modern setting without losing the spirit that made the original film so unique for its time. What the dozens of zombie movies that came »

With Iron Man 3 now the fifth top-grossing film of all time, Thor: The Dark World readying a new marketing campaign and filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier nearing completion, the only non-sequel in Marvel Studios' Phase Two is about to start rolling: Guardians of the Galaxy. As the uniquely diverse ensemble cast of Guardians of the Galaxy filled out over the past few months, production has set up at Shepperton, Pinewood and Longcross Film Studios in England. Director James Gunn posted via Facebook yesterday that "pre-shooting" starts today, even though principal photography on the space epic adventure doesn't start until next week, reportedly. Anyhow, it seems the film is being developed in a typical Marvel fashion; following past title ruse efforts, Group Hug, Caged Heat, Thursday Mourning and Freezerburn, Marvel lists Full Tilt as the working title for Guardians of the Galaxy. According to several U.K. »
While only a few of us (or is it just me?) dread The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set for release on May 2, 2014, Sony is moving forward on a third and fourth film, scheduling June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018 for those films. Sony Pictures’ Chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Jeff Blake, said in a press release, “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.” Yeah, sure. Whatever.
The Canadian based Sci-fi series Continuum, which is near completion of its second season up north, and just starting here on the SyFy Channel, has been picked up for a third season there. It’s a fairly good bet that Syfy will probably air season three sometime in 2014.
Not surprisingly, the recent story about the finding of lost Doctor Who episodes has »
Earlier this year we heard reports that John C. Reilly was in advanced talks to join Guardians Of The Galaxy, and now Deadline has confirmed that the star has officially boarded James Gunn's sci-fi spectacular. We were beginning to wonder whether there had been a spanner in the works of Reilly's negotiations, particularly since a number of other cast members have been added in the interim, but it seems our fears were happily unfounded. Reilly will be playing a character named Rhomann Dey, a battle-scarred Nova Corps operative who...

And so, after an absence of seven years, Superman returned to the big screen yesterday with the release of Zack Snyder's hotly-anticipated reboot Man of Steel, and despite a 57% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the Henry Cavill-headlined superhero epic is soaring at the box office. Man of Steel pulled in a mighty $21 million in the States on Thursday night (more than the midnight openings for The Avengers and The Dark Knight) and an estimated $45 million by close of play on Friday, »

John C. Reilly has joined the increasingly eclectic and unique cast for James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. As rumored previously, he will play Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps who anoints Richard Rider as Nova in the comics. That seems to hint that Nova, or at least the Corps, will be in the film, and that Marvel is clearly thinking massive in terms of scope for this movie. He may just be the Guardians answer to Agent Coulson, linking the Guardians to the rest of the cosmic Marvel universe.
It was rumored that he would be Ronan the Accuser, the big bad Kree villain, but that didn’t come to fruition. The film now stars John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Ophelia Lovibond and Michael Rooker. The movie opens August 1st, 2014. »

Funnyman John C. Reilly is indeed co-starring in James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” as Rhomann Dey, but instead of his Dey being the intergalactic version of Agent Coulson as previously believed, this Dey will instead be the leader of the film’s Nova Corp., the Marvel Universe’s version of D.C.’s Green Lantern Corp. What? You don’t know who Dey is? For shame! Here’s Marvel’s official fictional bio on ol Rhomann: Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps of Xandar and one of its few survivors. When the Warlord Zorr attacked Xandar, he devastated it and killed many Xandarians including Dey’s wife and child. Dey hunted Zorr and battled him. However, Zorr was too powerful for Dey and mortally wounded him. Dey flew to Earth ahead of Zorr and chose randomly Richard Rider as the new Nova transferring his power to him. »

Another quality actor joins the cast for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy as John C Reilly's involvement is confirmed...
Here's something that was heavily rumoured a few weeks back, and finally seems to be locked in. It seems as though John C Reilly joining the cast of the soon-to-shoot Marvel project Guardians Of The Galaxy is a done deal. He has signed on to play Rhomann Dey, the head of Nova Corps.
The film is an ambitious project that seems like a tricky sell, but given how well Thor worked out when it faced similar levels of doubt ahead of its release, it's certainly worth keeping an open mind. James Gunn, who is helmed the project, is a very talented director and he has one hell of a cast at his disposal here to ensure that the film has plenty in its corner. It »

Rhomann Dey. That’s actually fun to type if you put a little roll in your wrist – Rhomann Dey.
This is the part John C. Reilly is playing in James Gunn’s contribution to Marvel Phase Two: Guardians of the Galaxy. The character has become head of a sort of Intergalactic Police force called the Nova Corps and has sworn vengeance on the space pirate Zorr after Zorr slaughtered his world and his family. While battling Zorr as across the galaxy, he bestows Nova powers on a human with the wonderfully alliterative name Richard Rider – I’m pulling this from people who have read the comics, so I don’t know if he’s ever called Dick Rider, but it seems kind of made for that. Anywho, Richard becomes Nova thanks to Rhomann Dey and I don’t think the particulars are going to be relevant to Guardians of the Galaxy. »
In all of the hubbub leading up to this weekend's "Man of Steel," it's easy to forget for a moment that Marvel remains a few steps ahead of DC when it comes to rolling out properties.
John C. Reilly has thrown his country music-loving hat into the superhero ring, signing up for a role in the potential franchise starter "Guardians of the Galaxy," which is scheduled to hit theaters August 1, 2014.
Reilly joins the previously announced eclectic cast that includes Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace and Chris Pratt, according to Deadline. Reilly of course is no stranger to Marvel's corporate parent, having voiced the title role in Disney's $471 million hit "Wreck-It Ralph." He's signed up to play the leader of the Nova Corps, the Xandarian warrior Rhomann Dey, one of Marvel Comics' space-based heroes. In the mythology, his dying act was to transfer his powers to human teenager Richard Rider, »

A few weeks ago, rumors started to swirl about John C. Reilly joining the eclectic cast of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Deadline now reports that Reilly has been locked in to play Nova Corps leader Rhomann Dey in James Gunn's film. Reilly is no stranger to the Disney brand, having voiced the title character in the studio's hit film Wreck-It Ralph. His role of Dey will most likely amount to a brief supporting performance as much of the focus will be on Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and his crew which includes Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Yondu (Michael Rooker). Guardians of the Galaxy is due in theaters August 1, 2014. Speaking of Marvel, Walt Disney Pictures announced release dates for two untitled Marvel Studios movies. These two films...

It was earlier reported that he would be playing Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Empire's juror and military governor in space, but that information proved to be false.
Here is Marvel's rundown on John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey.
"Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr. Seemingly everyone else was killed in the attack, including Dey's family. Dey swore vengeance on Zorr and chased him across the galaxy, battling him along the way. He became mortally wounded and paralyzed »

John C. Reilly's role has been revealed in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and he will be playing Ronan "The Accuser." It was originally rumored he would be playing a character named Rhomann Dey, who was described as the human agent who would serve as a go-between guy that keeps the Guardians in line and reporting to S.H.I.E.L.D. about their activities. But when Glenn Close was cast in a similar sounding role, questions were raised on who Reilly was actually going to play in the film. That question has now been answered.
The character was introduced in Fantastic Four, and he's a Kree villain whose powers include superhuman strength, endurance, speed and reflexes, shielded by an exoskeleton armor suit can make him invisible. He also wields the “universal weapon,” which »

[Updated] Casting on James Gunn’s anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy has been coming together very nicely in recent weeks and months, with the blockbuster set to launch a new set of heroes as the penultimate film in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Falling directly before Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2 on Marvel’s slate, the film has been assembling an absolutely stellar cast. And now Deadline are confirming something we heard a couple weeks back, that John C. Reilly had been offered a part in the movie.

Late last month, we learned that John C. Reilly had been offered a role in Marvel’s upcoming superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy. Well now it appears that Reilly will indeed be joining the Marvel universe, as Deadline reports that Reilly has officially signed on to play Ronan the Accuser in the James Gunn-helmed film. In the comics, Ronan is a member of the alien race the Kree and has been portrayed as both villainous and noble at different times. The character possesses superhuman strength and speed, and wields a long hammer-like weapon called the “Universal Weapon,” which can do considerable damage. Ronan has also been portrayed as the son of Thanos in the comics, so it’s possible that Reilly will also play a large role in future Marvel films should the studio decide to tie his character into the big baddie that was gleaned at the end of The Avengers. »

The rumor mill has been running rampant lately for Guardians of the Galaxy, the only non-sequel on Marvel Studios' Phase 2 line-up, but some recent credible news has come in. The first rumor that linked John C. Reilly to the James Gunn-directed film said the Step Brothers actor was offered the role of Rhomann Dey, leader of the Nova Corps. But Deadline now reports that Reilly is really playing "Ronan 'The Accuser' Dey," a member and once-leader of the Kree alien race. Interestingly, the report lists John C. Reilly's character's last name as "Dey" which either indicates that Marvel could be merging Ronan & Rhomann for the film, or Deadline's sources are uncommonly a bit off. The previous Guardians rumors reported that the film version of Rhomann Dey would just be a "human agent who serves as a go-between, keeping the Guardians in line and reporting to S.H. »
