Jason Momoa cast as Drax the Destoryer in Guardians of the Galaxy
In part 2 of Latino Review Scoop Spectular, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has a rumored that another role is filled. For one of the main characters in fact... Drax the Destroyer.
Latino Reveiw says that the Conan and Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa was in London to screen-test for the part on Wednesday. Dave Bautista and Brian Patrick reportedly also tested for the role, but according to LR's sources, "Momoa’s screen test went so good that Marvel are planning to give the role to him". Personally I think this is a great choice because he did a fantastic job on Game of Thrones and he knows how to play Warriors. While it hasn't been 100% confirmed that he is going to be Drax, it is very likely.
Hold on... we aren't done yet. From the comment section of the previous news I posted, not many people know who the Guardians of the Galaxy are, so I will tell you about them.
"Puts on nerdy glasses"
- The Guardians of the Galaxy were first created in 1969 with a team in the 31st Century Lead by Major Victory
- However this team was rebooted in the series in the Annihilation: Conquest storyline with a completely new team. The rebooted team consisted of; Star-Lord, Adam Warlock , Drax the Destoryer, Gamora, Quasar, Rocket Raccon, and Groot
However these aren't the Guardians of the Galaxy members, there have been several more including:
- Major Victory (Leader of the orignal GOTG Team)
- Jack Flag
- and most recently Iron Man (While he is not a GOTG member, they are good freinds with Richard Rider..aka Nova)
From this concept art we can confirm several GOTG members will be in the film, however this is not final.
The main antagonist for the Guardians of the Galaxy is the Mad Titan Thanos who has been confirmed for the Guardians of the Galaxy Movie and the Sequel to the Avengers:
And there you go a quick guide to the Guardians of the Galaxy... I only scratched the surface and there is a lot to talk about so I might make another blog about it later.
