Former WWE Superstar Joins the Guardians

While several actors have been competing for the spot, the role of Drax in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film has officially been filled. THR is reporting that Dave Bautista, former WWE superstar and MMA star, has been cast as the green knife-wielding warrior designed to be the death of Thanos. Bautista has been in other films as well, including The Man with the Iron Fists, House of the Rising Sun, The Scorpion King 3, and the upcoming Riddick.

Bautista certainly has the physique to be the monstrous Drax; won’t need CG here, just some green and red paint. Great casting idea? Getting worried about this film? Let us know in the comments!
