Avengers 4 is the massive upcoming MCU event film that pretty much everyone out there is excited for. I say pretty much, because there is one star in the film that might not return after it’s released. Dave Bautista, aka Drax, has been pretty outspoken after the firing of James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for offensive tweets. Now, he’s taken it a step further.
While appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show recently, the wrestler turned actor said:
“It’s a bitter, bitter conversation because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn. They’re putting the movie off, it’s on hold indefinitely. To be honest with you, I don’t know if I want to work for Disney.”
“I love James. James really changed my life so it’s a personal thing too. I struggled, I starved for three years, I could barely get a job. There were a few people who believed in me along the way but James was the one who really changed the course of my life.”
Bautista also recently had some interesting comments about the spoilers he accidentally revealed:
“We definitely see more Guardians in the upcoming Avengers, which we’ve already shot. Oddly enough, I guess I wasn’t supposed to say anything, but I was already saying before Avengers 3 was released that I had already filmed [Avengers 4] and I was signed up for Guardians 3. So I must come back somehow. …It’s comforting, but at the same time I felt a sense of guilt because I don’t know if I was supposed to say anything. And nobody told me not to say anything.”
It’s not exactly a surprise, as he’s been very vocal about his displeasure with Disney‘s decision not to work with Gunn – even going as far as trolling them recently. If he does decide not to return, Disney could simply just say that Drax was one of the victims of the snap in Avengers: Infinity War, and just not bring him back. He’s definitely a fan favorite character though, so we’re unsure how that would work out.
It looks like if he does leave, DCEU fans would welcome him:
