Jason Momoa has been announced as joining Chris Pratt in Marvel’s upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” space based film. Any guesses on which character he will play? Word on the web is that the man formerly known as Conan will play none other than Drax the Destroyer, check it out:
Jason Momoa who played Conan in the Lionsgate reboot, and is best known for playing KhalDrogo in the first season of Game Of Thrones, flew out to London to screen test on Wednesday. It was reported earlier that Isiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista, and Brian Patrick also tested the role of Drax.
According to sources, Momoa’s screen test went so good that Marvel offered him the part and his reps have now countered, so the negotiations are ongoing.
That’s a damn good choice. Dave Bautista would have been interesting too, but I like with Marvel’s method of cherry picking the Game of Thrones staff for their own endeavors. It’s a fun casting choice and I can’t wait to see how they round out the rest. I’ll keep you guys posted as soon as information becomes available.
