Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer in Marvel Cinematic Universe, might not return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. His statement has left MCU fans disappointed, the wrestler-turned-actor hinted that even if the third installment in the franchise gets made, his return is uncertain.
“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,” he said in an interview. Dave Bautista had passed these comments on the issue which is still going on, the tussle between Marvel and Disney on firing their director James Gunn who had helmed the first two Projects however he was fired by Disney after some of his old tweets resurfaced on the internet again.
Dave Bautista was the first one from the Guardians team to come to the director’s defense. He claimed the unearthing of Gunn’s old tweets was a “cyber-attack”. Dave Bautista was soon joined by the remaining cast, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and Sean Gunn, all of them who signed an open letter in support of James Gunn’s to bring him back to helm the third part of the film.
The Guardians of Galaxy cast members have also signed a petition asking Disney to hire James Gunn once again. Since the day Gunn was fired by Disney, problems were created throughout the cast of the film. Dave Bautista who plays Drax in the film also has full support for James Gunn.
Disney are against the plan to bring back James Gunn for the third installment and they have now decided that they will be looking out for a new director who will be directing the third part of the Guardians of Galaxy, however the first two Guardians of Galaxy were super hits under James Gunn will this third part also be a super hit???
