<span style="color:red">SCOOP:</span> Could These Three Actors Be Up For 'Drax The Destroyer' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?

So far, we've only heard casting news about the leader of the space epic, but now we've got word of three faces you may recognize that may be in negotiations with Marvel Studios to portray 'Drax The Destroyer' in Guardians Of The Galaxy, which you can find out after the jump.


ComicBookMovie.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the names of three actors who are currently battling for the role of ‘Drax The Destroyer’ in James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy feature film. A source very close to production has let us know three faces who want to take on this titan, as well as a name that Marvel is “still high on” for Star-Lord.


L to R: Wade, Bautista, Mustafa

According to a source, Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade and former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista are all in negotiations with Marvel for the role of ‘Drax’ in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Dave Bautista recently starred in RZA’s Man With The Iron Fists, Isaiah Mustafa is known as ‘The Old Spice Guy’, while Brian Patrick Wade is known for 2006’s The Guardian.


Here's some basic backstory on the character. ‘Drax The Destroyer’ was an average human male named Arthur Douglas, whose family was murdered by the Mad Titan, Thanos. A being by the name of Kronos took the soul of Arthur Douglas and placed it in a far superior body to challenge the super-villain known as Thanos. We do know, however, that Drax’s backstory will be ‘updated’ for James Gunn’s future film adaptation.


Could there be a new frontrunner for Star-Lord in The Office's John Krasinski?

Our source also notes that Marvel is looking at John Krasinski for Peter Quill/Star-Lord, but there is no guarantee the deal will pan out as we’ve seen a ton of names bounced around so far. The film will also heavily rely around Star-Lord, with Drax and Gamora being important characters as well.

Out of these actors, which do you most want to see hit the big screen as ‘Drax The Destroyer’? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.
