Drax Confirmed For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’; Filming Begins Tomorrow

Guardians Of The Galaxy Drax Dave Bautista Avengers: Infinity WarDave Bautista revealed on Twitter, that not only is Drax going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, but he begins filming tomorrow. The actor revealed this after more reports of cast members not having scripts were released.

The tweet was in direct response to one such tweet from Variety which stated Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen have yet to receive the script. Bautista replied saying “Welp!!! That makes 3 of us! And I start filming tomorrow! #MarvelShroudofSecrecy.”

With Drax, nearly all Guardians of the Galaxy members have been confirmed. Granted, it would be safe to say unless one dies, all Guardians will likely appear. And since Bautista begins shooting tomorrow, it looks like production begins with a Guardians-centric scene. Earthbound heroes, like Scarlet Witch, seemingly won’t enter production for another couple months as Elizabeth Olsen confirmed she begins shooting in April.

Not receiving a script for the film the day before you begin filming is insane, but shows just what lengths Marvel will go to keep Infinity War a secret. The third Avengers film marks the initial culmination of the Marvel universe, which will be wrapped up with the fourth Avengers film in 2019. And while the MCU will continue on, the end of phase 3 marks the end of a trilogy of sorts.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.

    while cool…………I kind of wish they would stop announcing if a character is going to be in the next movie, you know…..before their upcoming film is out.

    • Jason Scarpelli

      That’s done for every movie made.

      • Brownstones19

        well yeah, but did we really need to know Nebula was coming back for Avengers 3?

        • Jason Scarpelli

          It was sort of obvious since she (and Gamora) are part of Thanos’ family.

    Anyone with half a brain knew that the Guardians would be helping to fight Thanos.

    • Jason Scarpelli

      Especially since it was already announced they ALL will return.

    I’m so happy!

    So Drax is ‘confirmed’ after the fact was known that all of them would return since November-December 2016? Wow, slow news day.
