In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is certainly no shortage of smart-asses. Between Starlord, Dr. Strange and now the inclusion of everyone’s favorite quipster, Spider-Man, Marvel’s upcoming Infinity War is sure to have sarcasm in spades. Though the film will put Thanos, the Mad Titan, at the center stage of antagonism, these wise cracking heroes may face a bigger opposition in the literalist that is Drax the Destroyer. Drax actor Dave Bautista has one particular hero in his sights, none other than Iron Man, Tony Stark.
In a recent interview, Bautista proposed his ideal team up for the character.
“Oh, I’ve said for years, and years, and years. It’s Robert Downey Jr./Tony Stark, man. I think there’s so much humor to be had there with Drax and Tony Stark. With him being such a sarcastic bastard and Drax taking everything so literally. I think there’s tons of humor to be had there. I’m also a huge fan of Robert’s.”
Bautista’s co-star Zoe Saldana (Gamora) promises that Infinity War will retain Marvel’s trademark light-heartedness in spite of the dire stakes of Thanos’ search for the Infinity Gauntlet.
“They (The Russo Brothers) are not shying away from the drama that an undertaking [that involves] bringing all the characters in the Marvel universe together is going to be for them. And they’re understanding the dramatic beats and they’re showcasing it, and obviously it’s gonna have a lot of action and everything, but also as Guardians being a part of it, we’re providing that levity and I think that it’s gonna make the movies more interesting.”
Back to back shooting of Infinity War and it’s untitled sequel, Avengers 4, is already under way at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia. Infinity War is slated for release on May 4, 2018.
