Dave Bautista has shot down a Drax Disney+ series before rumors could even start about one.
Over at Marvel Studios, it does seem like any and all characters are getting Disney+ series. Talking to JoBlo, Dave Bautista did say he was surprised not one series announced was a solo series for a Guardian of the Galaxy:
Yeah, I was shocked. I got on my Twitter for a second and started to bash them for not making-like, not one Guardians [of the Galaxy] character got a TV show. Like, how does that happen? There’s so many interesting characters in that world. I just don’t get it.
Technically I Am Groot was announced, but the project is a child friendly cartoon and not a full-blown Guardians spinoff.
Dave Bautista admitted that he doesn’t know what is planned in secret:
But, then I thought, I don’t know what they have in mind and I don’t know what they have planned, I get that they take all their marquee characters and they gave them shows, so I don’t want to take away from that just ‘cause I’m bitter that nobody from our series [got one].
But when asked if he would do a Drax series, Bautista did the opposite of what most actors. Instead of the old, “I’d love to do that project if it was offered to me,” he told JoBlo:
Honestly, if they offered me a series, I wouldn’t do it. Not a chance in hell would I do a TV series playing Drax. That is a make-up nightmare. I would be miserable. Yeah, that make-up isn’t fun. It’s awful, so I’m not gonna sign up to do a series where I’m in that make-up every day.
Well played, Dave Bautista. Well played, indeed.
