Glenn Close goes Nova (we think) in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

One of the most well-respected Emmy winners is coming to the Marvel U. 

So we mentioned recently the rumor that John C.  Reilly might be headed to Guardians of the Galaxy as a kind of Agent Coulson type. Well, if Reilly is the Coulson, then it looks like Glenn Close will be the Fury.

While the name of her character has yet to be revealed, Close will play the head of Nova Corps. That probably means she'll be playing Nova Prime. Probably. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess. So much of the Guardians movie is still shapeless that we don't know how fast or loose James Gunn wil be playing with established canon.

As casting goes, we're pretty happy with this one. Guardians has picked up a ragtag bunch of unlikely performers so far, which is great -- but we're still glad that an actor with some serious gravitas is on board now, too.
