"Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly has reportedly joined "Guardians of the Galaxy," the Marvel space adventure directed by James Gunn.
When the actor was offered the role of Rhomann Dey last month, it was described as an Agent Coulson-type character who will serve as a liaison between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Guardians. However,
Deadline now contends that in the film Rhomann Dey is the leader of the Nova Corps, which hews closer to the comic books, where he was the last surviving member of the intergalactic space police force Nova Corps who lands on Earth and transfers his helmet and powers to Richard Rider."
