Marvel reveals Glenn Close’s character in “Guardians of the Galaxy”


Shortly after some of the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con last weekend in San Diego, Marvel confirmed another cast member.

Saturday’s appearance consisted of director James Gunn, and revealed the cast as follows: Chris Pratt as the Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista portraying Drax the Destoryer, Benicio Del Toro as the Collector, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Hounsou playing Korath the Pursuer and Michael Rooker as Yondu.

During the panel, Gunn revealed that production of the film had already began, but audiences are still anxiously waiting for the announcements of the rest of the cast. (Make sure to also check out our coverage of the event here) On Tuesday (July 23), Marvel announced Glenn Close would be joining the group as Nova-Prime, leader of the police force Nova Corps. Little is known about the character since “Nova-Prime” is in fact a rank, not a name. It is unknown whether or not Close’s character will be an alien or human. It is also interesting to note that the title has been held by men only. Looks like Marvel might be changing things up.

The film is slated for a North American release of August 2014.
