Is Dave Bautista done with Galaxy and Marvel?
Dave Bautista has done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he will not be Batista-Bombing Thanos anymore.
Dave has reiterated his stance with Jimy Fallon and said that James Gunn had crafted a perfect exit from the character of Drax. He said,
“We all had those perfect character arcs and such a storybook ending. I constantly relate it to the way I ended my wrestling career. I ended it on a storybook note. And I would never go back and tarnish that. And it’s the same with this.”
He also said that he couldn’t be tempted back to play the role of Drax with a superhero-sized paycheque:
“With Drax, I just got to end the perfect way. And I would never sign up for another job as Drax just to get a paycheck. I would tarnish that [perfect ending], and I won’t do it.
He also told that he wants to be known as a good actor and is looking to expand his repertoire and endearingly. He never finds it easy due to the lengthy makeup process to play the role of Drax.
These all statements hint that he has done with Marvel and Galaxy and may leave.
