Jason Momoa set for Guardians of the Galaxy movie?

February 15th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Looks like Marvel may have found their guy to play Drax the Destroyer in the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.

According to El Mayimbe and Latino Review:

“Jason Momoa who played Conan in the Lionsgate reboot, and is best known for playing Khal Drogo 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”.

Busy week for El Mayimbe, Latino Review and the cast of Game of Thrones. So that means a busy week at FTN too.

I loved Momoa as Khal Drogo. He wasn’t a bad Conan either, it was a tough act to follow Arnold and the movie was pretty bad.

What do you guys think, if the rumor turns out to be true?
