“Almost everything in that Variety article on the Guardians of the Galaxy casting (and all the following articles based on it) was/is completely inaccurate. Just for the record.”He later clarified to IGN:
“I didn’t deny (or confirm) specifics. I just said the majority of the Variety article was inaccurate.”Strangely enough, the part about a new candidate coming after the holiday was true and this brings us to Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Deadline has the latest scoop which indicates that after a busy and very successful year with Premium Rush, Looper, Lincoln and of course, The Dark Knight Rises, Levitt is a candidate for the role of Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. If this report is accurate, it’s likely that Levitt is therefore not part of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s plans for Batman going forward, or even plans for Nightwing (there were never such rumors, but fans will always be fans, heheh). Expect more rumors and an official announcement soon, especially as Marvel and Gunn move on to casting the other members of the team and supporting cast. Guardians of the Galaxy will open on August 1st, 2014.
