Man-of-the-moment Joseph Gordon Levitt may return to that third Rock from the Sun, or in close proximity to anyway, for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

The “Dark Knight Rises” star has been named as a late entrant for the role of the sole human character in the James Gunn-directed blockbuster, according to Deadline. Zachary Levi, Lee Pace, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess and Eddie Redmayne had all been previously reported as being in contention for the part, that of Starlord Peter Quill.

Gordon-Levitt’s addition to the wish-list suggests Marvel and/or director Gunn (“Slither”) are chasing more of a ‘name’ for the blockbuster, which isn’t as well known a title as some of the other comic book movies in Marvel’s stable.

Gordon-Levitt’s coming off one of his biggest years to date, as the star of blockbusters like “Looper”, “Dark Knight Rises”, “Premium Rush” and “Lincoln”.
