As we have previously heard, actors Benicio del Toro, Karen Gillan and Lee Pace are playing villains in Marvel's upcoming "Guardians Of The Galaxy" film.

Now, Den of Geek says their source has confirmed which characters each will play in the production which is currently shooting in the UK.

Benicio del Toro is, indeed, The Collector. Also confirming an earlier rumour, Lee Pace is definitely going to be playing Ronan The Accuser. Karen Gillan, meanwhile, will be playing Nebula in the film.

The Collector is billions of years old and does exactly that - collect rare or valuable items from across the universe. He also has the power of prophecy and created a museum of countless life forms to keep them safe from Thanos.

Ronan The Accuser is an alien Kree with superhuman powers. He was a villain, but has become more heroic in the comics - so he'll probably have an arc in the film.

Nebula is a space pirate and the apparent granddaughter of Thanos.
