During the chat, Dave spoke about his future in the MCU playing Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy.

“I don’t know if they’ll move forward with the character or with Guardians at all [after Guardians 3],” he said, adding that he hasn’t read the script yet on purpose.

“I’ll probably have to do a table read but they would really even have to force me to do that. I like going in with no expectations, you know, because I’m a fan,” he admitted.

Guardians 3 is set to wrap filming in April of 2022.

“That will be the end of my Drax journey,” he confirmed.

“It’s been a hell of a journey with this cast and Guardians and the whole Marvel Universe. I feel like it really launched my career. And I’m kind of wrapping up that part of my journey, so it’s very much a bittersweet thing,” he went on to say.

“In the first film, Drax just came across so funny. I think they just wanted to tap into more of that, and that’s who the audience fell in love with. So we never really got to see Drax the Destroyer. Maybe there’ll be an opportunity in Guardians 3 so I won’t feel like there was anything left on the table. I’d love to bring some of that physicality from wrestling into the Marvel Universe, and I just haven’t had the opportunity to.”

At the same time, Dave Bautista stars in a huge new upcoming film!
