Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista Open to Play a New MCU Character

While promoting last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Marvel vet Dave Bautista stated that he will no longer return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Drax the Destroyer after James Gunn’s final installment to the blockbuster superhero franchise.

However, it seems like Bautista isn’t done with the superhero universe after all. Speaking with io9, Bautista confirmed that there’s still a chance for him to appear in future MCU projects. He clarified that he’s only done with playing Drax and is now open to sign on for a different Marvel character which he hopes would be something that has more depth.

“When I said that I was done, I was really just done with my journey as Drax,” Bautista explained. “I still have a relationship with Marvel. I’ve seen Kevin Feige again, Lou [D’Esposito] as recently as two weeks ago. And they know that I would be up for a role. I love the universe — the superhero universe, I love it. I’m a fan. So Marvel or DC, if they call, I would answer the phone. And if the role makes sense, I’d be all over it. I just would like the opportunity to do a bigger role, a different role. Maybe a deeper role. I’d love to have the opportunity to play, like an ominous villain in the superhero universe. Yeah. But never. I’m not done with it. But my journey with Drax is over.”

What are Dave Bautista’s upcoming projects

Bautista will next be seen reprising his role as the villainous Glossu Rabban in Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated Dune: Part Two. Afterward, he has several upcoming projects lined-up for him, including Amazon’s My Spy sequel, Lionsgate’s action comedy The Killer’s Game, and Gia Coppola’s upcoming drama The Last Showgirl. He is also currently developing an action buddy comedy film with Jason Momoa titled The Wrecking Crew.
