According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ophelia Lovibond, star of 4,3,2,1 and Mr Popper’s Penguins, has been cast in James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Lovibond will play  “aide to a near-immortal being called The Collector, who gathers artefacts and beings in the hopes of saving them from a foretold galactic annihilation.”

This is the first time a villain has been confirmed by any credible source, and it’s tempting to assume that either The Collector is foreshadowing the coming of Thanos, or there’s a bigger, primary threat.

Guardians Of The Galaxy is due in cinemas 1 August 2014. Pick up James Gunn’s Super on DVD for £4.49 or Blu-ray for £6.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
