Dave Bautista Threatens to Quit Guardians of the Galaxy

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Actor Dave Bautista Calls James Gunn Firing ‘Nauseating’

Bautista, who has of course played the scene-stealing Drax the Destroyer in three films to date, has acknowledged the inappropriate tone and content of Gunn's decade-old tweets while simultaneously arguing that they don't represent the person he knows Gunn to be.

He has been an outspoken advocate of Gunn's on Twitter and has a pretty strict no-nonsense approach on the site, previously calling the dismissal "bullshit". "Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis".

Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War star Dave Bautista says he'll quit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 if fired director James Gunn's script isn't used.

Former WWE Champion Batista is getting some mainstream media attention this week for his comments on working for Disney following the firing of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. "That's just how I feel".

And today, ShortList brings word of yet another twist to the tale; in his first interview since the whole debacle, Dave Bautista has threatened to quit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 unless Marvel Studios sticks with the original spec script submitted by Gunn. Bautista continued to voice his displeasure over the weekend, and called out Disney. He tweeted on Sunday that he'd "do what I'm legally obligated to do" but that "Guardians" without Gunn was "not what I signed up for".

Gunn had hinted that the script was completed in a Tweet back in June.

Police praised festival-goers for good behaviour and said they had only been needed in relation to a few minor drug seizures. Police found the pensioners at 3am, in the crowd at Wacken Open Air music festival in Wacken, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany .


The tweets included jokes about pedophilia and rape.

"You have to realize that when you are in that world as a comedian, a writer, whatever you're always stretching the boundaries and trying to find something which lead him to something that the world loves, which is Guardians of the Galaxy".

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor concluded, "He has a wonderful heart and a wonderful mind".

In the weeks since then, Gunn's been garnering a good amount of support from folks around the film community, though perhaps most importantly, he had the support of his Guardians cast. "But I hope it opens people's eyes to James' character".
