The list of contenders for the lead in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie has gotten a bit more interesting.  We learned back in November that a number of actors were on the shortlist for the role of Star-Lord in director James Gunn’s adaptation of the comic, and just a couple of weeks ago reports surfaced that the search had been narrowed down to Jim Sturgess, Zachary Levi (Chuck), and an unnamed third actor.  Now it appears that said unnamed actor is none other than the multitalented Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  Hit the jump for more. Word of Gordon-Levitt’s involvement comes via Deadline, who report that Marvel has added Jgl to the list of actors they are considering for the lead role of Peter Quill.  There’s no confirmation of whether Gordon-Levitt has been offered the role, but he’s certainly the most high-profile actor that has been mentioned thus far. »
