“Guardians of the Galaxy” scene stealer Dave Bautista may be involved in more Marvel films than just the upcoming ‘Guardians’ sequel.
PW Insider has posted up a piece about the WWE future of Bautista, saying Marvel Studios are “currently restructuring his contract that will likely see him get more money due to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy.”
They go on to say: “This will also lock Batista in for a number of other Marvel movies. Batista is slated for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as well as the 3rd Avengers movie, where he will have a significant role. That movie will be a few years down the road.”
It certainly sounds like Batista’s WWE career will come second to his film career in the future, but it also sounds speculative regarding the extent of Bautista’s potential involvement as Drax the Destroyer in the third “Avengers”.
They also say Batista has received a substantial deal to star in the “Kickboxer” remake with UFC star Georges St. Pierre.
