Lee Pace has won the villain role in Marvel Studios' upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, The Wrap reports. His role has not yet been disclosed, but he'll join Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker and Ophelia Lovibond in the James Gunn film.

The film, based on the Marvel comic books of the same name, features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions.

While there's no confirmation as of yet, there's a good chance that Pace's role is that of Taneleer Tivan, AKA The Collector. In the comics, Tivan learned about the threat Thanos posed to the universe and sought to collect life forms and worlds to place in a museum of sorts, ideally protecting them from Thanos' path of destruction. The character was recently said to be involved in the storyline.

Pace can next be seen on the big screen back in the role of Thranduil in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The film is currently in pre-production in the UK, with Gunn at the helm, and is targeting an August 1, 2014 release.
