GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Reports are circulating that Marvel has begun the search for an actor to portray Star-Lord in "Guardians of the Galaxy." The five names on the rumored short list are "Zero Dark Thirty" actor Joel Edgerton, "Boardwalk Empire's" Jack Huston, "Cloud Atlas'" Jim Sturgess, "The Hobbit" and "Pushing Daises" actor Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne, who plays Marius in the film adaptation of "Les Miserables."

Other names rumored to be interested in or under consideration include James Marsden, Sullivan Stapleton and Garrett Hedlund.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

It's only been a few days since Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart were confirmed to appear in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but another "X-Men" alum is also rumored to show up. Fresh off his work on "The Wolverine," Hugh Jackman is currently in negotiations to appear in the "X-Men: First Class" sequel. Jackman had a memorable cameo in "First Class" and it's unknown whether he'll have a larger role in "Days of Future Past." However, considering the time-travel aspect of the original comic book storyline, it's possible Jackman's role will be expanded beyond a 10-second cameo.
