Has Guardians Of The Galaxy got its villain?

Has Guardians of the Galaxy’s villain been revealed?

While many believed Thanos would be the villain in Guardians – and he may be, this is unconfirmed right now – JoBlo is reporting that they have learned who the real villain will be… Ronan the Accuser

From the Marvel wiki: Upon the completion of his formal education, Ronan was enrolled in the Kree Public Accuser Corps, the main law enforcement body for the empire. Ronan did well and was steadily promoted. In a border incident, he stopped a fleet of Skrull ships from entering Kree space. As a result, he was made Supreme Accuser of the Kree Empire, making him responsible for enforcing the laws and decrees of the Kree, and second only to the Supreme Intelligence, and the Imperial Minister. As a proud member of the Kree aristocracy (blue-skinned Kree), he was not happy taking orders from the Supreme Intelligence. His attempt to cause a civil war was quickly halted, and he quickly returned to service.

While some sites are saying this is who Pushing Daisies star Lee Pace (below) will be playing, it is still just a rumour. But, hey, we love rumours. And we love that Marvel are taking chances on their characterse? What say you guys… do you like this idea? Let us know in all the usual ways.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is released on August 1st, 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
