Biz Break: Khal Drogo Will Team Up With Star-Lord And X-Men Gets Its Villain

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | February 18, 2013 | Comments ()


Jason Momoa has accepted/been offered/is in negotiations for the role of Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. It really depends on who you ask and what time it is. Anyway, Drax had his family killed by cosmic asshole Thanos and exists only to exact revenge. Here's hoping filmmakers go with the shirtless, cape-less iteration of Drax.


We know that Peter Dinklage will be in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now Bryan Singer has confirmed that Dinklage will be the big bad, that Richard Nixon will make an appearance, and the film is set in the 70s. So who is the big bad, if not Nixon? Rumors are swirling that Dinklage will play Bolivar Trask, Father of the Sentinels. Does it matter that Bill Duke played Trask in X-Men 3: This Is Some Bullsh*t? No. Of course not. Hush.

Josh Brolin is playing Dwight in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. As we've discussed, Clive Owen played Dwight in the first Sin City, but the sequel takes place before that one and Dwight had a different face then. So Brolin is playing Dwight before the surgery and the accent. Got it? Nice. Here are a couple of pictures of Brolin from the set.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    Brolin looks more like a young Marv. And having another big green guy might be a mistake.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Thanus, the cosmic asshole, will rise again!

  • foolsage

    I hope Dinklage is cast as M.O.D.O.K.; he could actually make that character threatening (and fascinating to watch).

  • Ben

    They are fucking nailing it with this casting news for Guardians, hype level is off the fucking charts.

  • Nadine


  • Maguita NYC

    Simper not "SIMPY". Here you go (some are beyond fromage goodness)"

  • Mrs. Julien Might

    So pretty.

  • Nadine


  • Maguita NYC

    It's Mommmmmmmmoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnn.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • gp

    omg will we see a baby moondragon tho?!

  • Kala

    Sure wish they had come out with the Sin City sequel when I still really cared. I'll probably still watch it, but when it gets to be this long there's really almost no reason to do it. I enjoyed the first film for what it was, but this feels like a tacked on obligation.

  • JC

    8 years for a Sin City sequel was too damn long.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    From where I'm standing, it couldn't be long enough.

  • Trading Clive for Josh is like trading a succulent steak for chopped liver.

    And Jason Momoa can team up with my ladybits.

  • BWeaves

    So another character comes out of plastic surgery looking like Clive Owen? If that could happen in real life, my husband wouldn't look like a character on the Simpsons.

  • toblerone

    Am I the only one who thinks regardless (or because of) of all the talent assembled X-Men is go suck?

  • duckandcover

    I'm happy about all of this. Iffy on the Sin City news, especially after Spirit's flop, but I can dig it.

  • Mrs. Julien

    According to Steven, Hannibal may need more elephants, but according to me this needs more Drogo, all the bits from his shoulders down, specifically.

  • VonnegutSlut

    Let him rip you open like an envelope?

    (I stole that one from an article Courtney wrote about RDJ.)

  • Nadine

    This whole thing? Is my favourite thing.

  • logan

    Mrs. Julien! I'm shocked! Has Anna Von Beav hacked your account?

  • Mrs. Julien Might

    You may be shocked but Anna has been impugned. Well, she would have been, if it wasn't quite so logical a conclusion.

  • logan

    Hey who doesn't like a good impugning now and then?

  • Maguita NYC

    I would climb that tree like a purple-assed baboon in heat.

  • Maguita NYC

    Slam him like a screen door on a breezy afternoon?

  • Mrs. Julien Would Never!

    Bang him like a screen door in a hurricane?

  • TheShitWizard

    Ride him like Seabiscuit?

  • Maguita NYC

    Walk on Wall Street and demand he #OccupyMyVagina?

  • PDamian

    I'm PDamian, and I approve of these similes.

  • Mrs. Julien Would Never!

    Shimmy that drain pipe like the rent was due?

  • BWeaves

    Nail him like a board over a broken window during a zombie apocalypse.

    (OK, I stole that one from someone on Pajiba, but I love it.)

    (I think I stole this one from Zombienurse. I try to give credit where credit is due.)

  • Kballs

    Scale that like a coked-up Sherpa?

  • Maguita NYC

    Like a coked-up Sherpa???? Please explain in details.

  • Kballs

    Sherpas are incredible indigenous mountain climbers in the Himilayas. Find one all hopped up on coke and he'll scale Everest up and down all day. Kind of like you guys talking about this dude's penis.

  • Maguita NYC

    In all fairness, we were talking about everything from the shoulders down. Not just his penis. We are after all a classy bun...

    Scratch that, I just noticed your farting in elevators.

  • Mrs. Julien Would Never!

    I would leave no portion of that man unscaled. I would be on him like an ice cream cone in a heat wave.

  • Kballs

    Would he fill you up like a fart in an elevator?

  • This one and the zombie one are the best similes in this thread.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Dude, a little decorum, please.

  • Kballs

    Would he burgle your ham, Ronald McDonald?

  • Mrs. Julien

    He wouldn't have to burgle anything. It would be freely offered. I still have a feeling I'd have to ask him not to talk though. HEY! What ever happened to that "Don't Speak" SRL I keep suggesting?

  • Mrs. Julien

    Edit: JESUS! I Didn't even get how filthy Kballs comment was until I was on the way home.

  • BWeaves

    Hit it so hard, they'll make the man who pulls him out, the next King of England.

    (OK, I stole that one, too.)

  • Natallica

    At least you guys can utter something. I go all ashgahgdgdgfgfgddddggg at him. And sometimes, I just drool.
