Guardians of the Galaxy: Who will lead the newest team of superheroes? Last month we heard that five actors were under serious consideration to star in Guardians of the Galaxy, and now comes word that, of that group, only Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas) remains in contention, with Zachary Levi (TV’s Chuck, and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World) added to the mix to play Peter Quill, a half-alien, half-human character. And a third, unidentified actor may also be vying for the role. Guardians director James Gunn has since mentioned on Twitter that these reports are inaccurate. [Variety]

Snow White and the Huntsman: Ssh! Don’t tell anyone, but Kristen Stewart says she will be returning for the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Or, at least there’s a “strong possibility” that will happen. Sequel plans were up in the air last summer, with talk of a spin-off focusing on the Huntsman character played by Chris Hemsworth, but Stewart’s hints suggest that a direct sequel is now on the front burner, with her return as Snow White imminent.
