Bautista is Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy
With Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy racing towards the summer (which is when they are supposed to start shooting), the studio is working on getting the titular team assembled. The leader has already been chosen, and now we have the muscle (maybe. I’m not really sure what the dynamics of the team are).
THR is reporting that a deal has been made with WWE wrestler Bautista for him to play Drax the Destroyer. For those who don’t know, Drax is a human who was brought back from the dead as a green warrior to fight Thanos, an alien warlord in love with Death (like, as a person, not just a concept like me) and the guy who was teased at the end of Avengers.
While this is all fine and good, it still doesn’t answer the question that everyone has on their minds: Who will be playing Rocket Raccoon? That’s what we all want to know. Who cares about a kinda shitty wrestler who’s also a pretty shitty actor? Who will be Rocket?
Guardians of the Galaxy is set for release on August 1, 2014
