Guardians Of The Galaxy Rumours: John Krasinski For Star Lord, Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade And Dave Bautista For Drax

Gourmands might want to place an emergency order before reading on. This one definitely requires seasoning.

In short, there’s a small clump of casting rumours at Comic Book Movie, all pertaining to Guardians of the Galaxy.

The begin by reporting that Marvel are “still high” on the prospect of casting John Krasinski as Peter Quill, Star Lord. Krasinski has been named in association with the role before, this new claim essentially just brings him back into the spotlight after other claims, with the credibility of trade paper backing, put the focus on Zachary Levi, Jim Sturgess and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Indeed, this new Krasinski story sits against the background of Variety’s Jeff Sneider saying Gordon-Levitt has actually been offered the role, so “still high” doesn’t seem perfectly on the nose, at least.

And then the rumours turn around and start concerning another key character, Drax the Destroyer. This is the first time anybody has started rumourmongering on the Drax front.

The three candidates named are Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice guy; Brian Patrick Wade; and sometime WWE performer, Dave Bautista. Though there’s no specifics on how, it’s also said that the character’s backstory is going to be altered for the movie version.

Likelihood that somebody somewhere is having somebody on? Pretty high. Still, I’ll keep that link to the schmancy salts just in case I do need to eat my hat.

Right… who’s up for starting some Gamora rumours? Surely somebody’s going to get in on that now?
