The Marvel Cinematic Universe It has been the great success of the last decade around the world, conquering millions of fans with its superhero films, and to this day they continue the franchise with television series, such as WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. There is no doubt of the happiness that they have delivered to the spectators, but It seems that it is not the same feeling as Dave Bautista, one of its stars.
We recently came to know the strong words of Mickey Rourke, who played Ivan Vanko in Iron Man 2. After 10 years he spoke again about the MCU and he did it while praising the series Law and Order: “I respect all of you, the job that you all do is act for real, not like that Marvel crap.”. A few years ago he had recognized: “I wasn’t a fan of Marvel movies. I did a movie for Marvel once and they cut the whole fucking thing out.”.
Now who was in charge of criticizing Marvel was Dave Bautista, who embodied Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. In a conversation with Collider he regretted the decisions they made with his character: “I really wish they had put more effort on Drax, personally.”. He also added: “Drax has a really interesting backstory that they wasted. I know what they’re up to, but I think they really wasted Drax.”.
The interpreter continued arguing: “He has a great backstory. If you look at him, Drax, even though he seems like a scary guy, you look at him and he looks scary, he gets his butt kicked more than any other Marvel character.”. It culminated: “The whole ‘The Destroyer’ thing was thrown out the window … people just fell so much in love with Drax’s comedic side and they dug a hole in him. We missed a huge opportunity with that character and I don’t think he’ll ever show up again.”.
Dave Bautista will return to the franchise to have the best possible ending for his character in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, although we can assume that it was not pleasant for him. In the meantime, we’ll see you soon in Army of the Dead, the new action film directed by Zack Snyder that the May 21th to the streaming service Netflix.
