Former WWE Superstar Dave Batista is up for the role of Drax the Destroyer in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The casting would have been perfect when Drax was mentally crippled. (I’ve read Batista Unleashed and it brought me to the conclusion that Big Dave is a mental a cripple or a brilliant master of unintentional comedy.) Sadly, Drax’s recent characterization has him wielding lesser powers and his original, normal intellect level.
Still, there’s room for hope. ComicBookMovie noted that Drax’s backstory will be updated for the movie. Most recent superhero movies have had some comic relief and an idiotic Drax would fill that hole nicely. Out of the actors being considered for Drax, Batista would be the best idiot. He’s a natural fit!
Any thoughts on Dave Batista playing Drax the Destroyer?
