Latinoreview, who’s usually reliable when it comes to scoops, has heard that Jason Momoa a.k.a Khal Drogo of Game Of Thrones a.k.a Conan The Barbarian, recently screen tested for the role of Drax The Destroyer in Marvel’s upcoming GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, already starring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, to be directed by James Gunn.
The site said Momoa is part of a small group who screen tested this past Wednesday, other names included Isiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista, Brian Patrick. Word has it that Marvel liked Momoa so much, they’ve offered the role, BUT Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kitt tweeted and said though Momoa has tested, there is currently NO offer yet made to Momoa.
So stay tuned for the development on this.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY featuring such characters as Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Racoon and Gamora, will hit theaters August 1st, 2014
