Dave Bautista has been doing press as of late, with just earlier Bautista talking how he promised he would be more jacked than Josh Brolin when he films Avengers 4 in November.
Dave Bautista has finished filming for The Avengers: Infinity War and offers up to Yahoo that his character Drax, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord have some great scenes together.
We do. I’m excited about some of the stuff we did, but I don’t know what’s going to make it in the film. I always thought there would be a lot of good interaction between Tony Stark and Drax, and there was. And Star-Lord and Tony Stark as well. When you put those two guys in a room together, it’s like a spontaneous combustion. Talk about two talented guys who are so witty and smart and honed-in on their craft. It was a spectacle, and I’m so excited I got to witness it firsthand.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is also on board The Avengers: Infinity War as a producer and has been overseeing the Guardians scenes along with directors Anthony and Joe Russo. Dave Bautista offers he was “completely” happy about Gunn being involved.
Completely. I think one of the reasons we were so successful to begin with is because of James’s creativity. We had the luxury of him writing for us on Infinity War, and the Russos didn’t at all try to make us into something we weren’t. They encouraged us to own our characters and be the Guardians of the Galaxy, not their Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Avengers: Infinity War hits May 4, 2018.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
