'Guardians of the Galaxy' adds Glenn Close to ever-expanding cast - report

glenn-close-gi.jpgMarvel Studios continues to lock in its cast for their latest franchise entry, "Guardians of the Galaxy," and they've just found themselves a real heavy hitter.

Deadline reports that the studio is adding Glenn Close to the upcoming film, where she'll be playing a major leadership role in Nova Corp, the intergalactic space patrol. It appears her role will be similar to Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in "The Avengers."

"Guardians of the Galaxy," to be directed by James Gunn, is set to go into production late-June 2013 with a cast that already includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C. Reilly.

Do you think Close will make a good addition to the Marvel family?
