Jason Momoa Recruited For Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Jason Momoa

Well, here’s another rumor you should check out: Jason Momoa has been offered the supporting role of Drax The Destroyer in James Gunn‘s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy.

Latino Review has broken the news that Marvel has found their Arthur Douglas’s spirit back to life. According to the report, Momoa, best known for playing Khal Drogo on Game Of Thrones, and headlining the 2011 Conan reboot, impressed Marvel so much with his screen test that he was immediately offered the part, even though he had tough competition with Isaiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista, and Brian Patrick.

On the other hand, Borys Kit from THR, tweeted that Momoa has indeed screen tested for the part, but has NOT been offered the role, but Kit was quick to point out that it just means Marvel still hasn’t chosen their Drax. (below)

Meanwhile, El Mayimbe from Latino is sticking to his report, tweeting that Momoa was indeed the only one who flew to London to screen test, but he was asking for DOUBLE the Marvel asking price for the role. (below)

Whatsoever, the cast for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is no doubt shaping up. Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt has been cast as Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, in Marvel’s cosmic superhero ensemble movie.

Hopefully we’ll get word on who’s playing Groot, Gamora and Rocket Raccoon very soon because Guardians arrive on August 1st, 2014.

Arthur Douglas was a human whose family was attacked and killed by the supervillain Thanos. Needing a champion to combat Thanos, the being known as Kronos took Arthur’s spirit and placed it in a powerful new body, and Drax the Destroyer was born. Drax’s powers included enhanced strength and resilience, flight, and the ability to project energy blasts from his hands. The character often battled Thanos, and on occasion the superheroes Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock. He was also a member of the group known as the Infinity Watch.
