Dave Bautista Might Bring Drax The Destroyer To Avengers 3
That title is mega SEO superiority!
Comic book fans and followers of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, you’ve probably all watched Guardians of the Galaxy by now and loved the shit out of it, amirite? The world has certainly fallen in love with its characters, one of them being the brutish but comically sinister Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista of wrestling fame — although when I remember him as a wrestler, his name was Batista. Was that Vince McMahon’s doing again?

Bautista’s portrayal of Drax was something slightly different to the comics but excellently done. Who knew the man was so good at effectively portraying a role that encompasses both action ferocity and comedy? (Millions of wrestling fans hold up their hands.) Guardians of the Galaxy is now the number one movie of the year in the US (which is where most of this matters, for some reason) and fans are eagerly anticipating a clash or team-up between the Guardians and the Avengers, who are getting their second outing early next year. I cannot freaking wait!
Now a report has surfaced via one of those WWE fan service sites, which states that Bautista is busy “restructuring” his deal with Marvel so that he can appear in more features. An interesting tactic although one, I presume, Marvel might need to talk to the other actors of the Guardians movies about. Nonetheless the strong rumour that has surfaced from this report is that he will have a “significant role” in Avengers 3.
We all know what that means… [cue massive smile]
Know that guy Thanos, who was at the end of the Avengers movie and played a small role in Guardians of the Galaxy? Well he’s a really big baddie in the Marvel comic books and is called the Mad Titan. He is a cosmic-powered (which means really fucking powerful) godlike entity who Marvel call the Avatar of Death. Funny thing about Drax, he’s the Avatar of Life. His full title, Drax the Destroyer? It’s not just a name. He was created for the sole purpose of destroying Thanos the Mad Titan.
And now you see how it all fits together. Avengers 3 might well be the time of the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, as pretty much everyone is expecting it to be. Either that or it’s going to be a massive teaser for a follow-up movie. But Drax’s presence means that together with Thanos, we can also pretty much guarantee the involvement of the Guardians of the Galaxy in affairs. Which means that team-up (or conflict) is a-coming. Question is, which Avengers will still be around for it, and how on Earth are Marvel going to afford that movie? We don’t care, we’re sure they’ll work something out. But it’s going to be great!
