- Former WWE Champion Batista recently spoke with The Toronto Sun to promote the new 007 movie and commented on writer-director James Gunn working on the script for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2, which will star Batista as Drax the Destroyer:
"James is really excited about it, which really says something to me because he is such a perfectionist and he is so creative and he has such a dark, twisted sense of humour. And I can tell you that he loves writing for Drax. The best thing about that is that James gave everybody a Drax they weren't expecting. He was just a killer, a barbarian, in the comics. Yet he was funny in the film. It was just a different side to him and it was just more interesting."
"When I asked him what he was going to do to make it better, he said: 'I'm not going to try to make it better, I'm going to make it different!' So I really don't know (what Vol. 2 will offer). I couldn't give an honest answer to that question. But knowing James and knowing Kevin Feige (producer in charge of the Marvel Universe), I'm sure that it's going to be brilliant. I do know that he was going to try to tell more of the story of the characters. But we also need to move forward because — as you know from Marvel history — a lot of things tend to tie in together. So, hopefully, that's where we're headed — to tie in somewhere down the road with The Avengers. It all remains to be seen, but it will be a lot of good storytelling, a lot of laughs, a lot of good music and a lot of dramatic beats to give you an emotional connection. And I think they're going to introduce some new characters in this Guardians, as well, which is going to be pretty cool because, throughout the comics, a lot of members came in and out of the Guardians."
