    Ray Winston played a talking beaver in the narnia movies so I guess he could play a talking raccoon as well :woot:

    Ugh. idk about batista.

    See, I wouldn't like Durand for RR or Warlock. At all.

    The guy is 6'6''. He's played villains before. If he legitimately is in talks, it's for Thanos. No doubt about it. No doubt.

    I think he is for thanos

    Umm because Gunn said it on his twitter.

    So next time don't jump me because you think I'm jumping to conclusions. I don't insinuate nonsense like that.

    Why not? I'm not disagreeing he couldn't play Thanos, but he has the build for Rider/Adam, the look, and it's not like those two are short dudes. But yeah, given his height it is likely Thanos...I don't know about his build though. Also not sure why you think he would be perfect for the role. Some examples?

    Well he's played good guys, too... so he'd could just as easily be in for Drax..

    :p

    Well, I like to jump on people and assume they're jumping to conclusions for a relatively minor thing like that. BASH, BASH, BASH!!!

    Eh. I wouldn't nerdrage if he gets the part; they could definitely do worse than Durand for the Mad Titan. I just still get the suspicion that Marvel will go for a really big marquee Oscar-bait name for Thanos, like they have for most of their villains (Jeff Bridges, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Mickey Rourke, Hugo Weaving, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Eccleston).

    I mean, at 6'6, he'd tower over hemsworth. Maybe not tower, but he will clearly be taller. If Drax is that big, how tall will Thanos have to be?

    Idk, something about Durand just screams "a**hole", and villain to me...in my opinion, I would safely say that he is probably in talks for thanos

    not to mention, that it talks about the other two in talks for drax, and Durand in an "unspecified" role, if he were in talks for drax, he woulda probably been mentioned as, "being in talks for drax" lol

    I don't think they really need a tall actor for Thanos. They'll do that in post production.

    Maybe. But I mean, Kevin Durand is a big guy, I just can't see a Drax the Destroyer being so much bigger than thor

    I can say that I'm 95% sure Durand isn't in the running for Thanos and if he is well that's just bad casting IMO.

    I wouldn't mind Durand being Thanos. He's big, he's menacing, and he's a pretty good actor.

    I swear, as much as we nerds hate when Hollywood don't think outside the box in terms of casting we sure as hell do a lot of the same.

    Kevin Durand for Groot!

    As for Batista if he's who Gunn wants to go with for Drax then he'll have my support. Though, there are quite a few others I myself would like to see in the role before him.

    I'm still hoping John DiMaggio will be Rocket

    I vote Bautista.... For Groot's dead brother. He's just a log.

    Batista can play Kree Soldier #7. He gets a nice 45 second fight scene with Gamora.

    Durand was a good guy in the recent Resident Evil movie as well as Robin Hood.

    Durand looks really goofy to me. I don't know, just something about his face.

    If they use them, I could actually support Batista playing both Blood Brothers, who are of course, servants of Thanos, and appeared along side Thanos and Drax in Iron Man #55.

    I know she's like 45, but what do you guys think of Carrie Anne Moss as Gamora?

    Carrie Anne Moss is a coug and all, but I doubt she'd play Gamora. If they were making this movie like 10 years ago, I'd say yeah.
