Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy just keeps on adding cast and crew members. Chris Pratt was the last big star to lock in and now we’ve got word that big boy Jason Momoa is clinging onto the Marvel mega-ship.
Momoa was last seen (or not, depending on if you actually went out and saw it) opposite of Sylvester Stallone in Bullet to the Head. He was that freakishly large beast of a man that was swinging axes and taking names. He also tried to be the leading man in the Conan reboot, but that didn’t really pan out.
I think Momoa brings a great physical screen presence, but his acting ranges from wooden to sort of acceptable.
Here’s who he’ll be playing:
Arthur Douglas was a human whose family was attacked and killed by the supervillain Thanos. Needing a champion to combat Thanos, the being known as Kronos took Arthur’s spirit and placed it in a powerful new body, and Drax the Destroyer was born. Drax’s powers included enhanced strength and resilience, flight, and the ability to project energy blasts from his hands. The character often battled Thanos, and on occasion the superheroes Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock. He was also a member of the group known as the Infinity Watch.
