Dave Bautista Might Not Return for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'

Dave Bautista has been vocal about his opinion on how Disney handled the firing of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and now the actor is not sure he’ll return for the third movie.

The 49-year-old actor, who plays the role of Drax, opened up in an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show.

“It’s a bittersweet conversation — um, no, it’s a bitter-bitter conversation, because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn,” he said.

“They’re putting the movie off,” he added. “It’s on hold indefinitely. To be honest with you, I don’t know if I want to work for Disney.”

Dave added, “I’m not afraid to admit the way I feel… I don’t think I’m your typical Hollywood guy.”

    As if he matters that much to the movie. These threats by him are laughable. Disney will either kill his character off or hire someone to takes his place

  • Nurse Shadie

    well it does matter to actual fans of the film

    Disney should just rehire James Gunn. It was beyond stupid of them to fire him in the first place. Those tweets were either jokes or retweets. Just check out idubbbz’s video on James Gunn and you’ll see how idiotic it was to fire him. The guy isn’t a fucking pedo. There’s pedophiles in Hollywood like Woody Allen. Instead of going after people like him, they’re listening to people who cried wolf on James Gunn. Really screwed up there Disney.

    Um, yeah, HE MATTERS. He’s awesome on those movies and his character is very beloved.

    he’s not a big enough star to frighten Disney into anything and chances are he’ll do it anyway. its the biggest role of his career. people the like the character but he’s a bit player. if it was Pratt or Saldana it’d hold more weight
