While we can’t wait for Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 to release, it may mark the end of Dave Bautista’s, Drax The Destroyer’s journey with Marvel. This is heartbreaking news as Drax was a fan favorite character all over. Let’s learn more about the story and why this may be happening. Guardians Of The Galaxy 3, written and directed by James Gunn is going to hit theatres on May 5, 2023. It’s a long way out, but not to worry as Marvel has filled that huge gap with a number of jaw-dropping titles to be released.
In relation to the movie and other things, Dave Bautista was on an interview with The Digital Spy where he made a statement about leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the 3rd Guardians Of the Galaxy movie. The actor says the movie was “probably going to be the end of Drax.”
In the interview, Bautista also talked about a potential spin-off movie starring Drax The Destroyer and Mantis. But this pitch also seems to have gone down the sewers according to Bautista. The actor states that even though the idea for a spin-off was brilliant, Marvel might have passed on it due to reasons of it not playing a part in how the company has planned out its future releases.
Even though we will be completely distraught to see Drax The Destroyer leave, we still have a ton left to see from the character. Drax will be back on Thor: Love And Thunder, a movie that is shaping up to be one of Marvel’s best. The character will also be returning in a Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney Plus. The new Thor movie and the Special will be released in 2022. And after that, we finally have Guardians Of The Galaxy 3, so that’s 3 projects we have left with the character.
