Hey, remember the halcyon days of....yesterday....when the the lead role in "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was supposed to be between Jim Sturgess, "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Well, it seems no one actually knows anything, as another name has cropped up in contention to play Peter Quill.

Hey, remember the halcyon days of....yesterday....when the the lead role in "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was supposed to be between Jim Sturgess, "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Well, it seems no one actually knows anything, as another name has cropped up in contention to play Peter Quill.

"Smallville" star Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor on the show, revealed today via Twitter that he too has auditioned. "Read for my pal @JamesGunn GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY for PETER QUILL. What a treat! Thanks Jimmy. @Marvel," he posted on the social media site. So will he be the Star-Lord? Will he sign away his life to Marvel? Will there be even more names cropping up before this week is over? Who knows. Maybe. Probably.

It looks like the New Year has eradicated the tedious shortlist process that is now a part of the movie news cycle, so just note this for now and hope that Marvel makes an official announcement soon. The James Gunn directed superhero flick arrives on August 1, 2014. [IGN]
