Dave Bautista Comments On His Relationship With Disney & Marvel After Supporting James Gunn

Denis Villeneuve Dune Avengers Infinity War Dave Bautista MarvelDuring an interview with Pro Wrestling Sheet, Dave Bautista discussed the status of his relationship with Marvel and Disney after he stood by James Gunn following the director’s dismissal from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

When Disney fired James Gunn from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the cast of the franchise openly expressed their support for the filmmaker and none were more vocal than Drax actor Dave Bautista. In fact, Dave Bautista went as far as saying he would ask to be released from his contract with Marvel if Disney did not reinstate James Gunn, a decision the company made earlier this year. Fortunately, Dave Bautista now revealed that his relationship with both companies is still good despite his harsh words:

“I hope it’s good. I never actually talked to anybody from Disney. I only ever talk to people from Marvel. And they were very understanding about the way I felt.

I got people who are very understanding of where I stood. A lot of them just weren’t outspoken about it. And I just happened to be very outspoken about the way I felt.”

While production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was scheduled to begin early this year, the project was put on hold following the decision to remove Gunn as the director of the final chapter in the trilogy. Now, James Gunn will begin production on the third Guardians of the Galaxy film after completing work on The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. and DC. Details on the third and final chapter of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy are currently unknown, though the film will likely explore the ramifications of the universe-changing events in Avengers: Endgame.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.

    Only one year earlier I decided to just leave my previous job and I am extremely happy now…. I began doing work online, for a business I came across on the internet, for just a few hrs every day, and I receive definitely more than I did on my office workplace job… previous calendar month was 9,000 $… The most important thing regarding this is the additional free time I got for my family…and that the single requirement for this gig is simple typing and also accessibility to internet… I am also capable to devote quality time with my close relatives and buddies and look after my kids and also going on family holiday with them really consistently. Don’t ignore this chance and make sure to act fast. Give it a look, what it is about… kootenaydust.shopping.hn
