While Del Toro and Pace are reportedly confirmed to play The Collector and Ronan the Accuser respectively as rumored before, Gillan is said to portray Nebula in the James Gunn movie.
Mystery roles for Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan and Lee Pace in James Gunn's upcoming movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" reportedly have been found out. Den of Geek claims to be the one who knows the juicy details after "a solid source" has provided the site with the crucial information.
According to the report, "Guerrilla" actor Del Toro is indeed tapped to be The Collector, who has the power of prophecy. Rumored to be Angela the bounty hunter, "Doctor Who" star Gillan is said to play Nebula, an evil space pirate and mercenary who claims that Thanos is her grandfather. As for Pace, the Fernando Wood of "Lincoln" reportedly will be Ronan the Accuser, a son of Thanos, as predicted before.
The casting news, however, is not proven true yet considering that there's still no official word from Gunn and/or the cast members. So far, the movie has been confirmed to feature Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Yondu (Michael Rooker), Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) and the head of Nova Corps (Glenn Close).
Penned by Gunn and Chris McCoy, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is slated to be released on August 1, 2014. It will face fierce competition from Sam Taylor-Johnson's "Fifty Shades of Grey", which gets the same release date.
