If you haven't heard of McCoy, that's probably because he doesn't have any feature film credits yet. What he does have, and what makes studios ready to take a chance on him with major projects, is three scripts included on the Black List (the annual list of the best unproduced screenplays).
Guardians of the Galaxy will feature Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora and Drax the Destroyer. There's no word yet on casting or who will direct the superhero film.
