Yeah, Sarah Lancaster should, and then also Yvonne Strahovski as Ms Marvel.

At this point Rather than Batista or Momoa I would say yes to Terry Crews. But now I'm thinking Drax can just be an Unknown with all three qualities.

Batistas look
Momoas action
Crews acting

There has to be someone unknown who can do all 3. Hollywood is filled with hungry Unknowns. Marvel needs to look harder

And NO VIN DISEL... Drax cant be shorter than Starlord

Vin Diesel and The Rock are simply NOT going to be in any movie that doesn't cast them as the lead; and even if Marvel complied and turned Guardians into "Drax 'n' Friends," their asking price would be way too high for Feige's tastes.

Someone in another thread suggested Jon Bernthal (Shane from Walking Dead) for Drax: I could see that.

I agree with the parts about Vin Diesel and The Rock, neither one are going to be in this movie as Drax. If Marvel gets either one it will be for a title role. I could see Terry Crews doing a fine job but I really want him as Luke Cage, I think he fits that role pretty nicely. How about Boris Kodjoe as Drax? He is taller than Pratt by a couple of inches.

This is going to be the most riskiest movie of all so they simply won't hire a big name, imo. They cost too much, unless they're willing to come down. Frankly, all the big names being bandied about for Drax are not the best actors. I'd rather they go with someone less established.

The Rock played in Get Smart where he wasn't the lead, but the villain. Of course, he only turned out to be the villain at the end, but for the early part of the film he just seemed like a more typical secret agent, albeit in a supporting role.

Didn't The Rock leap off a building to his death in the first ten minutes of The Other Guys ? Sam Jackson too...

A great film.

Get Smart was pretty early in The Rock's acting career though. Since that time he has done a lot of stuff, specifically Fast Five which substantially raised his profile. For action films, he is firmly headlining material right now.

You mean Fast Five, in which he did not star, but costarred as part of an ensemble?

I don't get this notion that taking second billing in a big budget big studio franchise pic is beneath some of these guys. Isn't that exactly what Rock's doing in the new Michael Bay movie, and the Fast and Furious movies, and the GI Joe sequel?

But is Drax getting second billing? I assumed that GOTG was going to be Star Lord with Rocket and his amazing friends.

Rocket, as an all CGI character, is unlikely to have as much screentime as Drax or Gamora. Especially if setting up Thanos here is a major goal of Marvel's, as Drax and Gamora lend themselves nicely to that.

I'm not necessarily saying that Drax is beneath The Rock, but more that if Marvel were going to utilize The Rock I think they would rather it be in a title role, maybe something like Namor. Additionally, while Dwayne Johnson maybe a good fit physically, the role of Drax would seem to be a bit of a waste of his natural charisma.

They won't be making a Namor movie or a Hercules movie or whatever else Rock could take the title role in anytime this decade. This bizarre "let's save so-and-so actor for such-and-such movie that will never actually be made" logic that I sometimes see around these boards is super baffling

Also Drax has been a great character ever since Annihilation, and I'm sure he'll be a meaty character in the movie

That's fair, there is no telling when we might get a Namor movie, I just feel Marvel could better capitalize on The Rock. That said I'd have no problem with The Rock as Drax, but he has four movies in pre-production so I doubt he has time to film this anyway.

I wouldnt say drax can't be shorter. If its like Cyke/Wolvie comic versions it could work. Besides, getting worked up over height in a movie is a nonissue since they have been able to solve that problem for years. Hell, Vin was looking the Rock in the eyes on fast five. Although this isn't support for Vin as Drax

Exactly. We don't want *so and so* as Drax. We just want...Drax

The thing that makes this film so fascinating (and quite risky) is that this film is a puzzle to even long time comic book fans. The main plot points of the first few MCU films were easy to figure out - Iron Man is captured, Cap is transformed, Thor is banished and the Hulk is hunted.

GOTG brings more questions than answers. Will Drax be a (heavily modified) human? How much (if any) of his origin will be in the film? Will Rocket & Groot be aliens or (heavily modified) earth creatures? Will Moondragon be in the film? Will Gamora start out alligned with Thanos and then pull a "hero" turn? What will Thanos' powers be? I'm more interested in this film than anything before Avengers 2 because I haven't a clue about what Gunn is going to do.

I'm not apposed to having Drax played by an African American like terry crews or kevin grevioux, but at this point I would prefer an Unknown so when we look on screen we just see Drax.

I imagine Drax will have some prosthetics on his face, and not simply painted to look like a green Terry Crews or whoever.

When it comes to Gamora though, I'd like her to just look like a green version of the actress.

Drax and Gamora have serious ties to the antagonist. Rocket is a Raccoon.

Put simply (even though the characters don't line up):

Star-Lord= Luke
Drax= Han
Gamora= Leia
Rocket= The Droids
Groot= Chewbacca

The humanoids will be the main characters, and Rocket and Groot will be there for comic relief.

I kind of hope there's more too Gamora than just painting her green. Maybe white contacts and some ridges around her eyes where the war paint is.

I do want to see a "making of" video though where the actress playing Gamora gets painted green. Shame there wasn't one for Rebecca Romijn when she was painted blue. I don't want Gamora to end up with scales or anything like Mystique though.

Nor do I. Just maybe little affectations around her eyes. Maybe subtle reshaping in post to give her an otherworldly feel. I'm not artistically inclined enough to show you what I mean, but I basically think she should look 90% hot chick painted Green, 10% weird and alien, instead of just 100% hot chick painted green.

I think minor prosthetics like you get for Star Trek make up (for the chicks) would work, so that it still looks aesthetically pleasing. But no ridges like a Bajoran nose or Klingon forehead, or a Cardassian spoon.
