“There was talk of a Drax and Mantis movie for a while. It really was because it was James Gunn’s idea. He really wanted to do a Drax and Mantis movie. He put it on me. I thought it was so brilliant Idea but I haven’t heard any follow-up from the studio. I don’t think they are very interested or it doesn’t fit the way they planned things. But other than that, no. I mean what my commitments For that matter, I have Guardians 3 and that will probably be the end of Drax. ”

It doesn’t sound like that wonder I have plans to advance James Gunn’s idea for a Drax and Mantis outing. Don’t be afraid of Drax fans as Bautista will still be returning for one of Marvel’s many other sequels, Thor: Love and Thunder Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The third film in Star-Lord and his crew’s space adventures was recently released in May 2023, but despite this, Bautista reveals that he has not yet seen the script.

“I don’t know what the script of the third movie is, to be honest. Years ago there was a script that obviously needs to change because the whole direction of the Marvel Universe has changed.”

While Bautista believes some changes must have been made, returning writer and director James Gunn recently revealed it isn’t after declaring on social media that “most of the tweaks were creative choices. The Way the Guardian was hired for a long time. “So, depending on what happened during the events of Vol. 3, Bautista’s time as Drax may not be quite as complete as the actor seems to think.

As for the idea of ​​a Drax & Mantis mess, Bautista has already stated that he would turn down such an idea because of the extensive makeup it would have to endure, while the idea for a Disney + miniseries sounds perfect. “No chance in hell if I was doing a TV series that played Drax,” said the actor. “This is a makeup nightmare. I would be unhappy. Yeah, this makeup isn’t fun. It’s awful so I’m not going to sign up for a series where I’m on this makeup every time.” . “

If his time as Drax comes to an end, Bautista will have a lot more on his plate, starting with Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, which is slated to be released in select cinemas in the US on May 14, 2021 and then digitally on Netflix on May 21, 2021. May. The actor has also recently claimed multiple roles in the DC Universe, revealing that he has already signed up (quite aggressively) as Batman villain Bane for Warner Bros.
