Marvel star Dave Bautista has opened up about wrapping up the story of the Guardians of the Galaxy for the upcoming third film.
Before becoming a big star for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Dave Bautista was already well known as a professional wrestler. Following his performance as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, Hollywood began to seriously take him seriously as an actor leading to roles in other films like Blade Runner: 2049, the James Bond film Specter, Army of the Dead, and his role in the upcoming film, Dune. Now the role that arguably started it all seems to be coming to an end.
For some time it has been known that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be the last time we would see this particular lineup of the characters together with director James Gunn himself teasing at major character deaths. While speaking to Comicbook.com, Dave Bautista spoke about wrapping up the story for the characters and how the whole affair was bittersweet for him:
“It’s our third film. We’re going to wrap it up.And it’s been a hell of a journey with a few bumps. So I’m looking forward to this, man. My cast and obviously the director, James Gunn, they’re like family to me. This is kind of where my journey started. It’s come full circle and I’m looking forward to wrapping it up. And it’s a bittersweet… I mean, I’ve been doing Guardians since 2013. And, you know, when this comes out, you know, it’ll be in 2023, so that’s a, you know, 10 year journey. You know, all things must end. And, you know, I’m looking forward to kind of wrapping this up with my friends and family.”
