Perhaps rivaling "Godzilla" for having the most random cast for an upcoming tentpole movie, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" continues to assemble an unlikely group of players, now rounding up an actor who has found some career revitalization thanks to "The Walking Dead."

Marvel Signs WWE's Dave Bautista for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
You need a big man to play a big superhuman character. And while Marvel Studios reportedly flirted with "Conan The Barbarian"/"Game Of Thrones" star Jason Momoa, the role has gone to someone else. THR reports that WWE wrestler Dave Bautista has closed his deal to play Drax The Destroyer in their upcoming adaptation of "Guardians Of The Galaxy." Other actors up for the role apparently included Isaiah Mustafa and Patrick Wade.

While Warner Bros. flounders around trying to figure out what to do with "Justice League," Kevin Feige is showing them -- and the rest of Hollywood -- how it's done. With "The Avengers" capping off Phase One of the Marvel cycle by making a billion dollars or so, Feige has led the studio to unprecedented success in a genre that was once considered a risky niche. But for Phase Two he's raising the bar, and getting more ambitious, and that can easily be seen by the decision to make "Guardians Of The Galaxy."

There was a moment, however fleeting, when Jason Momoa was supposed to be the next big thing. But then "Conan The Barbarian" came out, and it was awful and tanked, and the only thing the actor has done since was Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet To The Head," which met a similar fate. But could a Marvel movie be in the cards?

Latino Review continues their run of comic movie rumorin'. Today's rumor du jour involves the good folks at that site revealing that producers of 2015's planned "Justice League" movie have nailed down a cast of characters for the film, and are limiting the famously huge roster to five core members. We always knew Superman and Batman would be a part of the group, having their own separate franchises with this year's "Man Of Steel" and a possibly forthcoming "The Batman" on it's way. But who would join them?

Yeah, we know. It was only this afternoon that we were talking about how hot Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at the moment, with franchises being thrown left and right at the actor. He's already passed on "Godzilla," and now he's turned down Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for the chance to step into Robert Rodriguez's noir soaked world.

Hey, remember the halcyon days of....yesterday....when the the lead role in "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was supposed to be between Jim Sturgess, "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and Joseph Gordon-Levitt?
