Avengers: Endgame actor Dave Bautista transforms into Bane in this awesome new piece of fan art, giving fans a glimpse of what the actor could look like as the venom-fueled Batman villain in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
When it was announced that James Gunn would direct the sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 movie Suicide Squad, fans went nuts with speculation on which characters and actors we could see in the supervillain team-up flick. Wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista was a hopeful due to his speaking out on behalf of James Gunn during his brief firing from Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy series. Dave Bautista was rumored to join The Suicide Squad, but that ultimately didn’t work out as the actor signed on to star in Zack Snyder’s next project, Army of The Dead.
Now, Instagram artist Mizuri has shared new artwork that imagines what Dave Bautista could look like as Bane for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Check out the artwork below in which Bane’s venom flows into the 50-year-old actor.

James Gunn has not cast his Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista in his next project The Suicide Squad, but that’s not enough to stop fans from imagining what character he could play in the DC Films universe. Although Dave Bautista is clearly resistant to joining certain other franchises, the actor has expressed interest in joining James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Dave Bautista has also mentioned that he would be down to play the iconic Batman villain Bane and even admitted to having talks with James Gunn regarding the project.
What do you think? Could Dave Bautista be a good choice to take on the role of Bane in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad? What other comic book characters would you like to see Dave Bautista play next? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
Plot details for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad are being kept under lock and key. However, Gunn will have a fresh new take on the villainous team-up, with a new squad that will feature the return of specific members of the original cast such as Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flagg, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor was previously attached to write and direct a version of the Suicide Squad sequel with Jared Leto and Will Smith but this is no longer the case. An earlier draft of the script was once rumored to center on the team’s mission to find a terrifying new Weapon of Mass Destruction that happened to be Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
The Suicide Squad has a cast that includes David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Idris Elba in an undisclosed role. John Cena has also been rumored for the project but details on which character he could be playing are currently under wraps.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Dave Bautista, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
