In 2014, Marvel Studios takes to the stars with "Guardians of the Galaxy," about a group of intergalactic warriors fighting to keep our world alive. It's not one of Marvel's more recognizable properties — indeed, some would call it an odd choice for the studio's next all-new franchise — but it's quickly becoming one of its most interesting.
Take, for example, the hunt to cast Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians. We haven't seen a casting search this competitive since Chris Evans landed Steve Rogers after months and months and months of rumors, supposed screen-tests and almost-deals. Watching the process has been endlessly entertaining, but more than that, it's been exciting — namely because the actors being mentioned for Star-Lord are, for the most part, awesome.
