Dave Bautista, the 53-year-old American actor and a retired wrestler who had had a slew of stints between 2002 and 2019 in WWE, said in a latest interview that quitting Marvel’s cinematic universe has been a relief to him, as he is not comfortable to play the “silly” Drax character. In point of fact, latest remarks from Bautista came forth as 2023 might just set off a new era for his career with a number of high-profile projects like of “Glass Onion,” “Knock at the kabin” alongside MCU’s (Marvel Cinematic Universe) “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
III,” while he has been set to depart MCU this year, too. Bautista played Marvel’s “Drax” nearly a decade on seven separate MCU projects.
Bautista says he is relieved to exit MCU
However, speaking in an interview with GQ Magazine, Bautista said that it has been a relief that the character is over, as he is uncertain whether he wants to leave his Hollywood legacy with a silly role likes of “Drax”.
Meanwhile, adding that he is very grateful to MCU for “Drax,” Bautista said to GQ Magazine, “I’m so grateful for Drax. I love him. But there’s a relief [that it’s over]. It wasn’t all pleasant.
It was hard playing that role. The makeup process was beating me down. And I just don’t know if I want Drax to be my legacy — it’s a silly performance, and I want to do more dramatic stuff”. If truth is to be told, Bautista’s acting career is mostly confined to playing the “Drax,” a supportive role in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchize.
