During his press tour for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, Dave Bautista was asked many times about playing Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the actor is expected to reprise his role in Thor: Love and Thunder, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Bautista admits he’s in a “weird place” with playing Drax. Now that he’s 52-years-old, he feels he’s past the point of wanting to play a character with his shirt off all of the time. Recently, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was answering questions in his Instagram stories, and the subject of Bautista came up.
“What are your thoughts on Dave Bautista leaving the role of Drax?,” someone asked. “I get it. I totally support Dave in whatever he chooses to do,” Gunn replied. You can check out a screenshot of the story below:
