Former WWE Superstar Batista is Up for the Role of Drax The Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy!
The Animal is back!
Big Dave Batista, better known as Batista during his WWE days (or Deacon Batista, which was horrid), is up for the role of the muscle to Marvel’s cosmic super team, Guardians of the Galaxy: Drax!
Drax, who has changed appearances drastically since his days in the 90’s in the Silver Surfer books, is the green strongman of the group, and has done what many heroes couldn’t do throughout the years: he killed Thanos. Yeah, that’s strength for you. And yes, nobody stays dead in comics except Uncle Ben, so Thanos is already back.
This would be a perfect fit for the former WWE Champion. I thought he was great in last year’s Man with the Iron Fists. Let’s hope this becomes a reality!
