    Idk, seems like he's always busy. But if he's got some small movie and is offered this I'd imagine he'd go ahead and drop his other, conflicting project(s)

    Well that's debatable. The only voice I've ever imagined for Captain America is just a regular, white american voice. Drax is a different story.

    ^Disagree

    I like Evans' performance, a lot, but he does have kind of a softer, higher-pitched voice than I'd picture for Cap
    To me, the perfect Cap voice was his booming voice from Marvel/Capcom
    "Good work, soldier!"

    And for Drax, I never really had any specific voice in mind.

    Charlie Murphy for Drax!
    lol jk, jk.

    I imagined Cap how he's been portrayed in MUA, A:EMH, and every media incarnation ever... a deep, booming, heroic voice. Kind of like the American equivalent of Hemsworth's voice.

    Drax is basically three characters. 70s Drax, mentally deficient 90s Drax, and modern Drax. I imagined all with different voices, but this one basically sounds like Riddick (I know, I have no imagination.)

    Where do you guys want Drax's strength levels to land, around Avengers Thor or Avengers Hulk levels?

    Also, do you guys want to see old school Cape wearing Drax or new school knife wielding bare backed Drax?

    I'd be inclined to make Drax a little less bricky relatively, so that Groot can be the team tank. Drax can be a somewhat weaker martial-brick, while Gamorra is the team martial artist ( for a definition of "martial artist" that likely includes "can kick the crap out of Spider-man" natch ).

    Groot= Hulk, Drax= Iron Man, Gamora= Black Widow, Star-Lord= Nick Fury, Rocket Raccoon= Jesus Christ Superstar.

    So in other words he'd be in Thor's place on The Avengers, which is very strong/skilled but isn't the "team brick".

    Right on :up:

    Except I would say Drax is more like Thor since he's a warrior and he uses melee weapons

    I definitely would like to see Drax and the double knives.. Maybe take some ideas from this: Bors from King Arthur..

    just more outer-space/futuristic kind of looking..maybe a bit more functional for stabbing or whatever but ya get the idea. I think that'd be cool

    Now based on what I've read though...Gamora would wipe the floor with Black Widow and then some right? I mean she's more than just a martial artist right?

    If that's who we get in the film, that would be fantastic.

    I like that. With moving expenses coming up soon among other stuff I want to get a couple books, but may have to wait awhile. I'm so pumped to read some stuff about these guys. They had an Annihilation graphic novel at Books-A-Million for $10.00. I didn't get it and I'm kicking myself. I hope when I go back they have it. Because they had 2 other GotG graphic novels but they were different volumes. I don't want to just pick up in the middle and have no clue what's going on. Lol

    Well if she's hailed as "the deadliest woman in the galaxy" (so I've read) then that would be such a disservice to the character if they downplayed her.

    Heres a hint about the whole "deadliest woman" thing: Its not literally true. It just an indication that she's a serious badass who likes killing stuff.

    She's varied from being peak human level, to have a healing factor, to having Iron Man level strength. She's all over the place, but ultimately, yes. Average Gamora wipes the floor with Black Widow.

    Dude, this. Charlie would be aaaawesome as Drax. Total badass. "Im Rick James, b***h!!" Maybe they could work that story into the movie as a flashback.

    For the record, Drax does actually play Sax.

    Haha, so you've spotted the topless broad. IMDB never mentioned him being in porn so I think not. However he has completed drama school, done voice overs for video games, done the motion capture for Kratos from the God of War series, has played a vampire, an agent, a demon ghost in a TV, and ofc the Frost Giant Grundroth in the movie Thor. He's also in Star Trek into Darkness coming out next year. From his experience, he knows drama, he knows acting, and he knows how to duel-wield. Not only he looks like Drax but he can fit into the role perfectly. He's worked with Marvel before and he can work with them again.

    I think he will be a little weaker than Thor. Probably between Ironman and Thor. I would say the knife wielding one. Obviously that's the one they are going with, but I think it looks cool

    Lol that's funny

    Yep he played a mean Sax when he was a regular human, it even carried over to his super powered for.

    What makes you think he'll be weaker than Thor?

    I know they're going with the knife using Drax (which I prefer), I was just asking what everyone "wanted" to see.

    I titled this thread for that fact, but absolutely no one mentioned it. So I think they just assumed I was trying to be clever.

    I think people are assuming Drax will be at a lower power level than Thor since modern Drax (Annihilation era with the double knives) is nowhere near Thor strength.

    I thought you were just being funny, I just didn't put two and two together for some reason.

    Yeah you're right, he still a heavy hitter though so I hope he's atleast somewhat close to Thor's strength in the MCU.
