Dave Batista, who plays Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has issued a kind of ultimatum to the management of Marvel Studios and Walt Disney. In a conversation with ShortList, the actor named the reason for his possible withdrawal from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
"What do I think about this now? If (Marvel) refuses to use it (James Gunn) script, I will ask them to release me from all contractual obligations, cut my character completely or replace me. I would be doing James a disservice if I did not do that, "he said.
According to Batista, he discussed Gunn's sudden firing with lead actor Chris Pratt. "Look, no one is protecting his comments on the web, but this is clearly a smear campaign against a good person. I spoke to Chris shortly after what happened, well, he's a bit of a religious person, so he needed time to pray and get his point of view, but I sent it away right away. This is complete nonsense. James is one of the most decent and kind people I know, "he added.
Recall that James Gunn was suspended from work after it became known about his controversial jokes ten years ago.
