Marvel’s new superhero film, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, goes into production later this year. Casting has not been confirmed quite yet, but the James Gunn-helmed film might be making some slightly unconventional choices. While ‘The Avengers’ starred the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Jeremy Renner, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ could star Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey?

The specific roles that Sandler and Carrey might fill have not been announced, but perhaps they are being considered to add a comic touch instead of the leading man? Joseph Gordon-Levitt was originally rumored to fill the shoes of main character, Peter Quill, but his representatives quickly squashed that possibility. I think it’s safe to assume Sandler and Carrey are being passed over for that now-vacant spot.

Carrey, however, does have some experience with superhero films. He is expected to appear in the upcoming ‘Kickass 2’ and previously played a wonderful Riddler in ‘Batman Forever’. Sandler has never played anything close to a superhero, except perhaps the animated Dracula in ‘Hotel Transylvania’.

Who do you think Sandler or Carrey could play in the upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ film?
