Guardians of the Galaxy 2 won’t hit the big screen until next year. But the movie’s die hard fans have already begun guessing what would happen to the team in the sequel. The cast, crew and producers have always taken extra care not to reveal spoilers for the movie. However, did actor Dave Bautista reveal a major plot point from the upcoming film by accident? Will his character Drax really succeed in killing Thanos?
The movie’s star did not exactly reveal too much in a recent interview during this year’ Comic Con. However, he did share what Drax would struggle in the upcoming movie.
“He’s the punchline… he’s confused,” Bautista told IGN, “He [has] developed strong relationships with these people. They’re now his friends and his family. But he’s still the same guy. He still takes everything very literally. But now he’s surrounded by people who use metaphors constantly. So he either doesn’t know what they’re talking about or he’s pretending to know what they’re talking about, but he really doesn’t. So he’s just confused.”
Will Drax ever get over his confusion? Or will he remain the “punchline” forever? More importantly, will he ever succeed in his mission to kill Thanos? No word as of yet to confirm any of this. When the first movie ended, though, Drax was hellbent on finding Thanos and killing him. Drax wants revenge because he thinks Thanos caused the death of his family. So he probably won’t abandon his mission anytime soon.
Will he actually succeed? Fans might have to wait for the movie’s release to find out for sure. You can catch Drax, Groot and the rest of the team’s return to the big screen next year. The Guardians of the Galaxy 2 won’t hit theaters until May 5, 2017.
