Dave Bautista Is Drax The Destroyer

Drax The DestroyerCollider has reported that Dave Bautista has been chosen to be Drax The Destroyer in Marvel Studios’ upcoming space saga, “Guardians Of The Galaxy.”  That being said, I should admit that while I haven’t seen too many films with Bautista in them, I have seen virtually every episode of “Stargate: Atlantis” with Jason Momoa, as well as “Conan” (which isn’t nearly as terrible as many make it out to be) and thought that he would have been a better choice.

I hope that it was determined that Dave Bautista better suited the character, and it didn’t just come down to him being cheaper (though it wouldn’t be the first time that Marvel had difficulty getting an actor for a particular part because of a reluctance to part with the ducats).  The decision doesn’t sour me on the film–it’s the Guardians of the Galaxy, for frak’s sake–but it does make me hope that future casting decisions work out better.

And by “better” I mean more in line with my expectations for the film (which is arrogant nonsense, I know).
