Gunn broke the news during a Q&A on Facebook (via awesomeemergency). The whole thing is worth a look if you"re really into Gunn or Guardians, but the part that caught our eye were the questions about Lee Pace.

That"s unfortunate news for Pace, who has sounded eager lớn return as Ronan. "I love the character," he said last week. "I"d love to play him again! Who knows!?" Even at the time, though, he acknowledged he"d be "the last person" whether his villainous character might resurface.

The news isn"t terribly surprising. Marvel Studios can create great superheroes in its sleep at this point, but it"s still struggling khổng lồ craft equally compelling villains.
