Jason Momoa to star in Guardians of the Galaxy?

Feb 18 2013, 4:14am CST | by

Jason Momoa has signed on for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

The 'Conan' actor gave such a convincing screen test as Drax the Destroyer for Marvel's upcoming adaptation of the superhero comic book series that producers decided to offer him the part immediately, according to Latino Review.

Jason reportedly beat off stiff competition from Isiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista and Brian Patrick during the audition last Wednesday (13.02.13).

The 33-year-old star will play key Guardians member Drax, a human whose family was slaughtered by villain Thanos, the evil being introduced at the end of 2012's 'Avengers Assemble'. He was given a chance at revenge by the Titans, who put his spirit into a powerful new body in order to oppose and eventually destroy Thanos.

Jason will join 'Zero Dark Thirty' actor Chris Pratt in the sci-fi flick. Chris was recently cast as lead character Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, an astronaut who returns from space as a galactic warrior.

The vocal casting for lead female Gamora, as well as for Rocket Raccoon and Groot have not yet been announced, but Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey are reportedly in talks to pick up the latter roles.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' is scheduled for release in August 2014.

Zack Snyder Talks ‘Batman v Superman,’ ‘Justice League’ and Aquaman on Detroit Radio

Oct 28 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

Earlier this year, Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder called a local Detroit radio station to defend Aquaman. This was before Jason Momoa was officially announced as the character, so it created a bit of a stir. Plus, how often do major film directors call local radio during production to talk about their film? Not often. Well, Snyder is at it again. The production of Batman v Superman is almost done in the ...

Apparently now that Warner Bros. has unveiled the release dates for its DC movie slate, the stars can start talking about the films – to a degree.  Just yesterday we shared some quotes from Jason Momoa on Aquaman and now we’ve got Ray Fisher talking Cyborg, too. The guy doesn’t have a single feature film credit to his name, but soon enough, he’ll have two pretty big ones – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part One.  On top of that, much to Fisher’s surprise, he’s gettin ...

Besides the fans, the biggest winners of the recent DC Warner Bros. announcement were Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.

Jason Momoa Dishes Aquaman: “I Don't Have to be Quiet Anymore”

Oct 20 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We’ve thought Jason Momoa would be Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for some time, but it was never truly announced. Whenever the actor was asked about, he was coy with his response and it was one of the great mystery of the DC Comics-Warner Bros. world. But now that DC Comics and Warner Bros. have announced a superhero slate through 2020 that includes a solo Aquaman movie, Momoa is free to not only admit that he is Aquaman, but he can share his ...
