More Casting News for Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy

After it looked like Guardians of the Galaxy had found their Drax the Destroyer in Jason Momoa, more actors continue to be screen tested.




   After reporting a few days ago that actor Jason Momoa, best known for his role as Khal Drago in Game of Thrones and unfortunately as Conan in the failed reboot, had been offered the role of Drax the Destroyer after his screen test, the negotiations have apparently fallen through and Marvel is screen testing actors again.

   Jason Momoa could be a good choice for the role and despite his last two films not being big hits, he continues to be a fan favorite for the role.  Director James Gunn has said however that the film is "not cast-dependent," adding, "we could make a movie with unknowns if we wanted to."   Is he repeating Terrence Howard's mistake when he asked for too much to reprise his role in Iron Man 2, only to be replaced by Don Cheadle?  Momoa may be a rising star, but all rising stars need a big movie to send them on their way and Guardians might be that movie.  Unfortunately, according to @elmayimbe of Latino Review, Momoa is just asking for way too much at this time.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
