Is Dave Bautista Quitting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?!?

The firing of director James Gunn from the Marvel Studios franchise Guardians of the Galaxy has not sat well with the cast. None more than actor Dave Bautista.

Bautista who has been very vocal amidst the firing of Gunn has stated he will quit if Gunn’s script isn’t used for GotG Vol. 3.

Dave Bautista had also said its “pretty nauseating” to continue working for Disney after it caved to a “smear campaign by fascists.” Bautista even said he’d ask to be released from his contract and suggest Marvel recast the role of Drax if Gunn’s Vol. 3 script is jettisoned.

“I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t,” he says. Bautista also elaborated a bit on his previous comment, saying, “Nobody’s defending [Gunn’s] tweets, but this was a smear campaign against a good man.” He says he spoke to Chris Pratt right after Gunn was fired, and Pratt—who is “a bit religious”—had said he needed some time to “pray and figure it out” before he knew how to feel about it.

Bautista on the other hand…
