Guardians of the Galaxy’s cast list is starting to fill out these past few weeks, with the lead role of Star Lord already locked, we now turn to the supporting characters, with the latest news revealing that former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa is currently in talks to play the role of Drax the Destroyer.

Like many comic book characters, Drax the Destroyer has gone through numerous drastic changes in the comic, but he is most recognizable as the dim-witted member of Infinity Watch, who might not be able to beat you in a game of Words with Friends but has enough raw power to go toe to toe with the likes of Thor, Hulk, and the Silver Surfer – and that’s not counting the fact that he also had access to the Power Gem at some point.

Momoa seems to be a good fit for the role if we’re going to base it on physique, and assuming that we’re going with the slow-witted, muscle-bound version of Drax (as opposed to the one where he got leaner, started using a knife, and become Wolverine-lite), he’s got enough acting chops to pull it off.
