Momoa Apparently Not Drax In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY After All.

jason-momoa-300 So, last week, El Mayimbe over at Latino Review reported that Jason Momoa was all but a done deal to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy.

We reported it, but since we were burned by El Mayimbe before and other Hollywood insiders were saying Marvel was still testing for the role, we decided to post it just as a possibility and not as a done deal. It turns out that was a sound practice to employ.

ComicBookMovie.com reposts the news from El Mayimbe’s Twitter feed (not from Latino Review, strangely enough) where he backslid and announced that Marvel was still testing for the role Drax. Oh, he didn’t admit that he was wrong. His story goes that his info was correct, that Momoa was offered the role, but his agents priced the actor out of contention.

Whether that is really the case or not, the bottom line is that the hunt for Drax goes on…and I will take whatever El Mayimbe says with an even bigger grain of salt.
