Benicio Del Toro is one of the biggest names in Guardians Of The Galaxy’s pleasingly eclectic cast, but the star has been busily doing his comic-book homework like a bright-eyed rookie…
“When someone calls you and says ‘I need you in my movie,’ it’s exciting,” he says. “I like comic-book movies, and it’s totally new for me. My character is The Collector. I’ve never heard of him so I just started [to research] about him…”
However, while Del Toro might have done some reading around the subject, he goes on to say that his character’s motivation is occasionally kept a mystery even to him!
“For example, they told you ‘Now you have to go in this restaurant and kill this person,’” says Del Toro. “And then you ask: ‘Who? The blue haired girl, or the guy with the wig?’ And you don’t get the answer.”
“And suddenly, you heard ‘Action!’ And you have to go along: so you shoot everywhere and they’ll find a solution for the final cut.”
Sounds like The Collector will be showing off his violent side, doesn’t it? Directed by James Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Glenn Close and Zoe Saldana, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
