Guardians Of The Galaxy casting latest
There's no Jason Momoa in Guardians Of The Galaxy, as Dave Bautista takes the role of Drax...
Production isn't far away from starting on the second, and riskiest, of Marvel's two big screen ventures in 2014. While Captain America: The Winter Soldier is pretty much a shoo-in for box office success, Guardians Of The Galaxy is more of a challenge. The film's being directed by James Gunn, and if reports are to be believed, this one won't be so intrinsically tied, at least not the same degree, to The Avengers 2.
Bits of casting information have been filtering through throughout the year, then, and another piece has just arrived. It's the confirmation that Dave Bautista is set to play Drax the Destroyer in the new film. Jason Momoa had been linked to the part, but the official confirmation says Bautista's in, and Momoa's out.
There are still some parts of the casting jigsaw to put together, and we'll keep you posted. The film is currently set for release on August 1st 2014.
