Chuck star Levi was reportedly "not featured on the initial group" of leading men, but Marvel is now thought to be "impressed" with a screen test he did for the film.

Meanwhile, Cloud Atlas and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole actor Sturgess is "the only one" from an initial list of five leading men to still be in the running to take the role.

Variety also claims that an unnamed third man may have a screen test following the Christmas break.

In the Marvel comic books, Star-Lord leads a group of superheroes, including Drax the Destroyer and Gamora, to protect the solar system. His alter ego Quill has a human mother and alien father, but assumes the guise of Star-Lord to police the planets.
