'Guardians of the Galaxy' Gets Giant Guy To Play Drax
Wrestler and sentient trapezius muscle Dave Bautista has closed a deal to enter the Marvel Universe of films and associated merchandise.
THR reports he's joining Chris Pratt and maybe Adam Sandler's voice in Guardians of the Galaxy, where he'll play a big green guy, Drax the Destroyer, a human resurrected and pigmented expressly to kill the teased Avengers villain Thanos. Conan's likewise muscley guy, Jason Momoa, was previously rumored to be a lock for the part, but it now seems that wasn't such a lock after all. Ever since The Man with the Iron Fists, there's just no competing with Bautista when it comes to holding a coat of paint.
