Yesterday we reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined the short list of actors up for the the lead role in Guardians Of The Galaxy , joining Jim Sturgess and Chuck star Zachary Levi. Today another name has entered the race to play Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord.
Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor on the show, revealed today via Twitter that he too has auditioned.

Via Rosenbaun’s Twitter;

Read for my pal @JamesGunn GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY for PETER QUILL. What a treat! Thanks Jimmy. @Marvel

It looks like the short list had been eradicated, so just note this for now and hope that Marvel makes an official announcement soon. The James Gunn directed superhero film arrives on August 1, 2014.
