There’s new reports making the rounds on the Internet that Marvel may have found their choice for Drax in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Earlier this week the word was that Isaiah Mustafa, Dave Batista , and Brian Patrick pictured below were testing for the role.
The latest word is that Jason Momoa (Conan, Game of Thrones, Stargate Atlantis) was brought in to read for the role in London on Wednesday and the test went so well that Marvel offered him the part. Moma’s representation is now in the process of working out the details with Marvel as negotiations progress.
I’m of mixed opinion on this casting news. I loved Momoa in Game of Thrones and Stargate Atlantis, but was disappointed with his take on Conan, very disappointed. That might work though, Drax is part of a group, much like the roles Momoa played in Game and Stargate. In his role as Conan, Momoa had to carry the movie, perhaps he just isn’t ready to carry a movie on those broad shoulders yet.
What do you think about this casting news? Was there someone else you were excited about for the part? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
