Movie News: John C. Reilly Offered 'Guardians of the Galaxy;' New TV Spots for 'Pacific Rim' and 'Man of Steel'

Guardians of the Galaxy: As Marvel gears up for the start of production on superhero team up Guardians of the Galaxy under the direction of James Gunn, John C. Reilly has been offered the key role of Rhomann Dey, described as "the human agent who serves as a go-between, keeping the Guardians in line and reporting to S.H.I.E.L.D. about their activities." It's roughly equivalent to the part played by Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson in The Avengers and others. Shooting begins in June, with the movie due out in theaters on August 1, 2014. [HitFix]

Rodham: Who should play Hillary Rodham Carter at the age of 26? An upcoming biopic titled Rodham follows the future first lady, U.S. senator, and secretary of state in the year 1974 when she was working as an attorney in Washington, D.C. The script by Young il-Kim drew the attention of director James Ponsoldt (Smashed, The Spectacular Now), and now such stars as Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, Amanda Seyfried and Scarlett Johansson are under consideration to star, though it's not entirely clear if the film has fully secured financing yet.

Pacific Rim TV Spot: Really, this looks like a movie that's too big to fit onto a small screen, but, nonetheless, a new TV spot for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim teases a few slices of action from the movie, which revolves around a battle between human-operated giant robots and giant monsters that emerge from the depths of the ocean. Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam lead the cast; the movie is due out on July 12. [Warner Bros.]

Man of Steel TV Spots: Henry Cavill takes on the challenging dual role of Kal-El, aka Clark Kent, aka Superman, in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which will finally be unveiled in full on June 14. Two new TV spots feature tidbits of spectacular action. The all-star cast includes Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne. [Hey U Guys UK]
