On Monday we learned that Benicio Del Toro was cast in Guardians of the Galaxy, but at the time the role was unknown. Well now, ComicBookMovie.com is claiming a reliable source has revealed that Del Toro has been cast in the role of Taneleer Tivan, aka The Collector. Now we should consider this nothing more than a rumor until some real confirmation is given, but it does give some interesting insight.
See when actor Lee Pace was reported to be cast for Guardians, it was thought he was playing The Collector. But if it turns out that Benicio Del Toro is in fact playing the role, then the rumor that Pace is possibly playing Adam Warlock could also prove to be correct. Very interesting. Guardians of the Galaxy is to be directed by James Gunn and stars (so far) Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, and Benecio Del Toro, to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014. (Source: CBM)
