Following on from the announcement that Kevin Michael Richardson and Trevor Devall will lend their voices to Groot and Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy animated show, Marvel has now revealed two more members of the voice cast for the upcoming Disney Xd series.
David Sobolov, who appeared alongside Richardson’s Groot and Devall’s Rocket in the Ultimate Spider-Man episode ‘The Return of the Guardians of the Galaxy’ is set to reprise the role of Drax the Destroyer, while former Boy Meets World star Will Friedle will lend his voice to Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord.
Friedle has himself previously featured in Ultimate Spider-Man, portraying Deadpool, while his other voice work includes Terry McGinnis in Batman Beyond, Lion-o in the revamped Thundercats, and Bumblebee in Transformers: Prime.
Here are the official announcement videos…
So, that just leaves Gamora. Expect an announcement at some point today…

Welcome to a special edition of our news round-up, this time focusing on three comic book adaptations. The female lead in the Deadpool movie has been cast, the voice actors for Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Drax, Groot, and Rocket have been revealed for Disney Xd's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series (and fans of Boy Meets World and Batman Beyond should be very pleased with the Quill casting), and it's been announced that a Dreadstar TV series is in the works with the creator of the comic book series, Jim Starlin, executive producing and writing the project.
Deadpool: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morena Baccarin (Inara Serra from Firefly and Serenity, Homeland, Gotham) will play the female lead in the upcoming Ryan Reynolds-starring Deadpool movie. The name of Baccarin's character has not yet been revealed, so it's unknown if she'll play a character from the Marvel comic book universe. »

Joining Kevin Michael Richardson as Groot and Trevor Devall as Rocket in the upcoming Disney Xd Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series is Will Friedle (Boy meets World) as Peter Jason Quill, aka Star Lord. Like the others, Friedle has plenty of experience voicing characters in comic-based shows, having played the likes of the Caped Crusade in Batman Beyond, Lion-o in Thundercats, Bumblebee in Transformers: Prime and Deadpool in Ultimate Spider-Man. Plus, we have David Sobolov returning as Drax. A lot of fans expected this as Sobolov has previously provided the voice for the character in Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. Only Gamora left as far as the main team goes, so we'll surely find out who'll be voicing her pretty soon. Marvel will produce the series, with Alan Fine, Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb on board as as executive producers. »
After successfully meeting the World, Will Friedle will next become acquainted with the Galaxy.

Welcome To Issue 78!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
It seems a lot of you are excited about the possibility of Spider-Man rejoining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and rightly so. I’ve been tweeted at, e-mailed and asked directly a whole bunch of detailed questions about how/when/if Spider-Man is making the move, and I can’t get more detailed at the moment.
Here’s why: the stuff I’m hearing is not coming from the rumored “Spider-Man” summit, so I don’t know if it occurred or what the subject matter will be. Marvel has plans as to how it is going to use Spider-Man moving forward and »
The Flickering Myth team react…
As with every new trailer for a superhero movie, there are those who like it, and those who don’t. In the case of Ant-Man, the feeling across the Internet has been more or less the same: it’s okay.

But what about the writing and editorial staff of Flickering Myth? Did they join the consensus of, “it’s okay”, or did they have other thoughts?
Ozzy Armstrong: While I think the film may be decent, I was a little underwhelmed by this trailer. It had everything I expected – mild humour, sagely wisdom and insect related action, but it fell a little flat. Still, definitely not writing it off yet and will still happily toddle off to the cinema to watch it.
Kris Wall: It looks enjoyable, certainly not the showstopper I’ve come to »
