Dave Bautista slams Drax’s lost past, saying, “It is what it is.”
MARVEL star Dave Bautista has spoken out about Drax the Destroyer’s origins, claiming that Disney “washed it under the rug.”
Drax the Destroyer was an instant hit when he first appeared in the 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Bautista’s crazy fighter was on a mission to assassinate Thanos (Josh Brolin) after the tyrant murdered his wife and daughter. Drax’s only purpose during the events of the film and its sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, was to pursue revenge wherever he could. This plot has been thrown aside, according to Bautista.

When his fans ask him questions on Twitter, Bautista typically responds.
“Waiting to see where #Drax is psychologically now that #thanos is finally dead,” one fan recently inquired. With @DaveBautista announcing that he won’t be returning after the next film, I’m hoping for a happy, peaceful conclusion to The Destroyer rather than death in battle.”
The former wrestler couldn’t help but chime in on what had occurred to the character’s heartbreaking journey.
“That whole Drax/Thanos history seems to get thrown under the rug,” the Blade Runner 2049 star observed. (sic)
The history of Drax and Thanos seems to be pushed under the rug. I’ve always wondered why, but every explanation I’ve come up with makes me shake my head. It’s just the way it is. AXlFcKYq5E https://t.co/AXlFcKYq5E
“I’ve always pondered why, but every answer I can think of simply makes me shake my f*****g head,” Bautista continued. “It is what it is,” says the narrator.
Drax’s tale continues briefly in Avengers: Infinity War, as he battled Thanos on the planet of Knowhere.
However, his motivation was never discussed again after that.
To make matters even more confusing, Thanos was murdered in Avengers: Endgame by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Is this a sign that Drax’s task has been finished, and he will now take a break from his universe-saving responsibilities?
After Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Bautista has previously stated that he will not be continuing his journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“We work with trilogies and James Gunn,” he previously assured fans.Brinkwire Summary News
