Jason Momoa set for Guardians Of The Galaxy?
Could the one-time Conan be signing up to Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy?
Gradually, it looks as if the cast list for James Gunn's upcoming Marvel movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, is starting to take shape. Following the casting announcement of Chris Pratt, it appears as though another key part has been filled, with Jason Momoa apparently set to play Drax the Destroyer.
Momoa was most recently seen in Bullet To The Head (and he was arguably the best thing in it), but is best known for playing Khal Drogo in Game Of Thrones and Conan in the reboot from a couple of years ago. He's an imposing screen presence and a solid actor, so should work well as part of the ensemble cast.
Momoa flew out to London to screen test on Wednesday after Isiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista and Brian Patrick had also apparently tested for the role. And while there hasn't been official confirmation, it's being reported that Momoa was offered the part of Drax. More news on the film as we get it.
