Jason Momoa in line to join Guardians Of The Galaxy?

Guardians Of The Galaxy seems to be steadily piecing together its ensemble cast, with Jason Momoa reportedly in talks to take the role of Drax the Destroyer.

According to Latino Review , the Game Of Thrones star auditioned for the role last week, with Marvel preferring his take on the character over those of fellow auditionees, Dave Bautista and Brian Patrick.

Afficionados of the comic-book will know that Drax began life as a human, until his family were traumatically slain by the villainous Thanos. From then on, Drax’s spirit was transferred into a vastly more powerful body…

Momoa certainly has the physique to carry off the role, and as anyone who’s watched him in Game Of Thrones can testify, he can do a lot with roles that seemingly cast him as a simple lump of muscle.

Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt in the leading role, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
