Guardians of the Galaxy movie logoGuardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to social media today to deny this weekend's reports that the casting for Star-Lord has been narrowed to two, including newcomer Zachary Levi, who currently plays Fandral in Thor: The Dark World.

"Almost everything in that Variety article on the Guardians of the Galaxy casting (and all the following articles based on it) was/is completely inaccurate. Just for the record," Gunn wrote to his Facebook page moments ago.

Variety had reported that Jim Sturgess is the only previously-shortlisted actor currently under consideration for the coveted role, and that Levi had snuck in as a result of how pleased the studio is with his work onĀ Thor: The Dark World.
