Jason Momoa Joining Guardians of the Galaxy?

It looks like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy team is being fleshed out. According to Latino Review, Conan the Barbarian and Bullet to the Head star Jason Momoa is in negotiations to play Drax the Destroyer in the upcoming space adventure film.

If you haven’t been doing your comic book homework, Drax the Destroyer is the green character standing on the left in the below concept art. He’s a human placed in the body of an alien after his parents were killed by the supervillain Thanos. He’s appeared in numerous comics over the last forty years, but this will be his first time on the big screen.

No official casting announcements about Guardians of the Galaxy have been made, but Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt is rumoured to be playing the main hero, Peter Quill aka Starlord. The film is being directed by Super filmmaker James Gunn, and it will hit our galaxy on August 1, 2014.
