The Story Behind Dave Bautista’s outburst on Guardians of the Galaxy 3

       We all know the lovable, huge, blue warrior from Guardians of the Galaxy, if not for his comedy but for his vital and thrilling role in the franchise.  Drax brang happiness and humor to the movies but not without his own deep and meaningful moments. The Guardians of the Galaxy without Drax is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without the bread.  It’s all wrong and missing something crucial and enjoyable. Not only did Drax bring happiness and humor to the movies but deep and meaningful moments that truly touched the audience. We may have to adapt to this strange new thought soon for Dave Bautista has told the world about his impending deadline.  

       The tweets dating back to 2008-2011 when James Gunn the director and genius behind the ever growing Guardians of the Galaxy was discovered to have tweets that contained pedophilia and rape content.  Gunn has stated that they were just “offensive jokes.”

       Marvel’s strict authority has fired James Gunn from directing the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie and is considering abandoning the script he wrote all together.  

       Dave Bautista was quick to join the fray and defend Gunn with his own tweets stating, “Nobody’s defending his tweets, but this was a smear campaign on a good man.”Bautista also went as far as threatening to take himself out of the next Guardians of the Galaxy under the assumption that it will not use Gunn’s script and work.  He also stated, “I will do what I’m legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn’t GOTG. It’s also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis . That’s just how I feel.”

       Dave Bautista also discussed leaving the movie and contract if possible, due to the current strenuous circumstances.  He states “Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me.”

       Some fans are not only worrying about the impending loss of Drax in the future films but also the rest of the gang.  This happened to have also crossed Bautista’s mind to which he responded with a tweet of his own saying “I spoke to Chris Pratt the day after it happened and he’s a bit religious so he wanted time to pray and figure it out, but I was more like: f*ck this.”  

       As Dave Bautista continues to support and help James Gunn through this situation with continued statements like “I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t,” as well as, “ This is bullsh*t. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I’ve met.”It is now entirely likely that there will now be an absence in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie which could only ever be filled by Drax in the hearts of the fans and other movie watchers.
