DioFoRio - 5/24/2013, 12:08 PM
But man I'm stoked to see this is action..Dude's ripped man. Holy Bejeebus.
DioFoRio - 5/24/2013, 12:09 PM
Is he gonna be painted up or are they going CGI?
TheManFromMars - 5/24/2013, 12:09 PM
Can't wait!
MrReese - 5/24/2013, 12:10 PM
I don't know about his acting chops but he definitely has the look down pat.
dellamorte1872 - 5/24/2013, 12:18 PM
DRAX doesnt have to speak much, just be physical
brazilianbatman - 5/24/2013, 12:18 PM
this guy should play Bane in the BATMAN REBBOOT
brazilianbatman - 5/24/2013, 12:19 PM
OR Crossbones
Ramiel - 5/24/2013, 12:29 PM
Funny how Bautista mentions The Rock in his tweet. Rock was my top choice to play Drax. I can't wait for this movie!
MarvelWeiner - 5/24/2013, 12:29 PM
lol what's up with his neck?
MrMartinMarvel - 5/24/2013, 12:34 PM
Can't wait to see him kill stuff.
Amazing512 - 5/24/2013, 12:39 PM
They could have got him to play hulk and save money on all the CGI
TheKingsHead - 5/24/2013, 12:40 PM
He's got the V
beane2099 - 5/24/2013, 12:41 PM
Man, they've really changed Drax's look. I can get behind the ink covered beef cake and grey sweat shorts look though. Haw.
Brainiac13 - 5/24/2013, 12:41 PM
@Gusto

I'll pay to see that!
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 5/24/2013, 12:41 PM
What a tool bag. Sick tribal bro.
beane2099 - 5/24/2013, 12:42 PM
Those traps are fierce though. I'm pretty sure Batista's traps alone could kick my ass. Just sayin'.
ATrueHero1987 - 5/24/2013, 12:43 PM
After TA2, this & Thor:TDW tie-in for my most anticipated movie from phase 2!
Natetrix79 - 5/24/2013, 12:44 PM
Stop hate'n on wrestlers, anyone that can look at some of those fans without laughing deserves an Oscar!!!!
TelaVizion - 5/24/2013, 12:44 PM
damn
blogger234 - 5/24/2013, 12:45 PM
where's the green makeup
Gmoney84 - 5/24/2013, 12:45 PM
Damn, that dude is jacked. If nothing else he will look the part of Drax for sure.
TelaVizion - 5/24/2013, 12:46 PM
I'm still waiting for Rock's Marvel franchise... He would make a great villain, but you can't get a franchise being a villain (Unless they actually a villain movie franchise/which would be great and different)
thebearjew - 5/24/2013, 12:46 PM
A i the only one who thought for a second this was about martian manhunter? And got really excited

Dont get me wrong im excited for this movie
Omarvls - 5/24/2013, 12:46 PM
This is Marvel's BIGGEST GAMBLE EVER
IF GotG works out Marvel will have their own
Star Wars type Franchise in the Marvel Universe
That would be GROUNDBREAKING
amxt - 5/24/2013, 12:46 PM
Dare I say this is typecasting?
beane2099 - 5/24/2013, 12:46 PM
Bautista always had a great ring presence. And I've liked him in the movies I've seen him in.
iam8bit - 5/24/2013, 12:54 PM
'Roids: Not even once.
TheClemster - 5/24/2013, 12:54 PM
give me 5 bucks and I will slap him across the face,...

Then die. But I would do anything for a fiver. Times are hard man!!!
SageMode - 5/24/2013, 12:56 PM
Dude is a beast. Can't wait to see him as Drax
MarkV - 5/24/2013, 12:58 PM
Hormone Replacement Therapy

Looks like a little synthol in the delts.
TheClemster - 5/24/2013, 12:58 PM
Jokes apart I am sold onhim playing drax, the pis above give a great comparison and with the right make up it will look awesome.

Bring the double knives!!!!
SpideyQuad - 5/24/2013, 12:59 PM
Hasn't anyone learned anything from last night? Agree with me or you all end up in the hall of shame!
SunfireUrA55 - 5/24/2013, 12:59 PM
He definitely looks like the character. Can't wait. Too bad they got that ugly chick from Star Trek to play the main girl though.
DioFoRio - 5/24/2013, 1:00 PM
Lol@Natetrix79
MrNiklander - 5/24/2013, 1:00 PM
THE ANIMAL HAS BEEN UNLEASHED
exe - 5/24/2013, 1:02 PM
He won't be acting or talking much in the movie.

But damn he looks the part.
Inhuman - 5/24/2013, 1:02 PM
If Dave Bautista can be Drax, there should be no reason why The Rock cant be Luke Cage. Rock grows the goatee hes been wearing recently in his movies, he looks exactly like Luke Cage!
Wallymelon - 5/24/2013, 1:04 PM
yeah thats drax for sure
KrazyForKomix - 5/24/2013, 1:05 PM
Where's the "realism?"
Where's his battle armor? Where's his space safety helmet?
I don't get it . . .
I thought movies we're dispensing with the non-sencicle comicbookie elements . . ?
