Watch Lee Pace become Ronan in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ behind-the-scenes images

In some exciting behind-the-scenes Guardians of the Galaxy images, we see actor Lee Pace as he goes through extensive makeup to turn into Ronan the Accuser.

While Lee Pace’s character didn’t have quite as large of a role as we thought he would, he had a very unique design in a film that was difficult to stand out in.

One thing everyone agrees on in Guardians of the Galaxy is that the film had some of the freshest designs we’ve seen in quite some time.

Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan had some of the most incredible makeup/prosthetics we’ve seen in quite some time, and her sister in the film, played by Zoe Saldana, also had a great look in her green skin.

Lee Pace probably didn’t spend nearly as much time in his costume due to less screentime, but it’s interesting to see the different stages of the process. Check out The Hobbit actor’s transformation into the film’s villain in some new images released below:

Pace looked incredible as the film’s villain, Ronan, who was on a warpath to finding the Infinity Stone, which he obtains (briefly) in the film that has taken in a massive $300M+ already.

Another character who required a ton of makeup and prosthetics was Drax, who was played by WWE star Dave Bautista. All of the cast looked great and that was because director James Gunn went with real makeup and prosthetics instead of CGI, which gave the film an incredibly fresh design.

Guardians of the Galaxy’s sequel has already been announced and director James Gunn revealed yesterday that the film will focus on Star-Lord’s father, and will also feature Thanos in another small role similar to what was seen in the first film.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 release date has been set for July 28, 2017.
