Benicio Del Toro Joins ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ by Derek Kraneveldt

It’s been a big week for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Last Wednesday, Glenn Close joined the project as the head of the Nova Corps, and just two days ago, Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan signed on as a lead villain.

Today, Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro signed on for a leading role. No details were revealed about who he’ll be playing, but according to Deadline (who broke the news), he has signed a multi-picture deal for a character that will have a big part in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
