Jason Momoa is reportedly in talks to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
According to Latino Review, The Game Of Thrones star impressed Marvel so much in his screen test that they have offered him the role and he is now in negotiations over the terms.
Jason proved his muscle when he starred in the big-screen remake of Conan The Barbarian in 2011, but the film performed poorly at the box office.
He is thought to be a good choice for comic book character Drax, who is a human brought back to life in a powerful alien body to avenge the death of his family, and joins the Guardians in their fight against evil.
Production on Guardians Of The Galaxy is due to begin in London during the summer, for a release in 2014.
Chris Pratt is expected to star as Peter Quill - AKA Star-Lord - and it was recently reported that Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler were in talks for supporting roles, thought to be motion-capture characters Rocket Raccoon (a talking raccoon) or Groot (a giant tree).
