Marvel executives are reportedly meeting with WWE superstar Dave Bautista ("The Man with the Iron Fists") for the role of Drax the Destroyer in James Gunn's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy".

Jason Momoa was previously thought to be in serious talks with the studio, however a deal could not be reached (ie. he wanted more than tightly budgeted Marvel would allow).

Isaiah Mustafa and Brian Patrick were previously contenders for the role. At present, Chris Pratt remains the sole confirmed cast member.
