Dave Bautista (Drax The Destroyer) spoke to CinemaBlend on the set of the new James Bond Spectre and was mostly asked about the other franchise he’s in, Guardians of the Galaxy. The sequel is scheduled to release in 2017. The director James Gunn is now working on the script.
Here’s what Bautista has to say about what to expect in the next movie:
I don’t think anybody would be upset with me sharing that I think that’s what they want to do. I think that’s the goal — is, you know, we wanna tell more of the stories of the characters, because the characters are really interesting. You know, I think that’s what made Guardians so successful as characters. They really are interesting. They’re a little — they’re jaded. They’re just not your cookie-cutter characters. They’re definitely not boy scouts and girl scouts by any means, but I think that’s kind of what made people able to relate to them. And I think, yeah, I think definitely they want to tap into some of that some more and tell more stories, which, as a fan, I’m excited to see.
He also talked to ScreenRant about the possible Avengers connection:
It’s rumors right now, but, you know, I pray every day…and night, and afternoon, and after you walk out the door I’ll go pray and say, “Please let Drax be in ‘The Avengers.’ ” [Laughter] Yeah, I hope it’ll happen.
Director James Gunn said before that he considers Guardians of the Galaxy as a separate team from Avengers and Jeremy Renner joked about it not happening, but as both teams exist in the same universe and both battle Thanos over the Infinity Stones, there has to be a crossover in the future.
