Batista reveals if he would perform in Drax character
Batista got into the movie industry when he got a small role as an alien in the sixth season of the television series Smallville. From then he has been working hard and ultimately it has paid off.
He recently let his fans know about the update on his future as Drax. The character has been loved by the fans as there has been speculation that he might quit playing the role.
Batista recently took to his Twitter handle to reply to a tweet from IGN which speculated that the upcoming movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 might be the last time we see Drax in the MCU.
However, The Animal clarified that Drax will stay, but he won’t be the one who would play the character. The movie is set to release sometime in 2023 and the 52-year-old star joked that by the time the movie would come out he will be 54-year-old and that he is “expecting everything to start sagging.”
He wrote: “Drax isn’t going anywhere. He just won’t be played by this dude! By the time G3 comes out I’ll be 54 yrs old for God’s sake! I’m expecting everything to start sagging any second now.”
