The upcoming sequels Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier all have their principal casts locked down, and in some cases, are mostly done filming, but joining them in the next two years of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is newcomer Guardians of the Galaxy.

James Gunn is rewriting the screenplay and directing Guardians but the casting process is just beginning and there five names up for the lead role of Peter Quill, including Lee Pace.

Pace earned a lot of recognition for his starring role in the short-lived Pushing Daisies and has since being bolstering his profile in increasingly larger film projects, the latest of which include Lincoln, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and next week’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
