Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy already has a pretty cool roster, including newly added Walking Dead fave, Michael Rooker. Rooker will play an alien named Yondu who ironically, like his TV brother, enjoys using a bow and arrow.

The James Gunn-directed Disney space adventure film that pits alien superheroes against an evil alien race, stars Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and WWE’s Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, they also added Ophelia Lovibond for a supporting role. You want more details about the role? Well, those are being kept hidden.

The Wrap reported that Lee Pace (The Hobbit, Pushing Daisies) is in final negotiations to play the villain but these details are being kept hidden as well. What’s with all the secrets, Disney?

Production is scheduled to begin this June, and fans can expect a August 1, 2014 release date
