Earlier this month, Bautista spoke out about how Marvel missed an opportunity to tap into a greater story for his Guardians Of The Galaxy character.

The wrestler-turned-actor, who plays Drax in the Guardian films plus Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, voiced his opinion on Twitter in response to a fan’s comment on his departure from the MCU.

“Waiting to see where Drax is mentally now that Thanos is finally dead,” tweeted the fan. “With Dave Bautista saying he won’t return after the next movie, I’m hoping more and more to see a happy, peaceful ending to The Destroyer rather than dying in battle.”

Bautista quote tweeted the fan in his response, which took aim at the studio.

“That whole Drax, Thanos history seemed to get swept under the rug,” he wrote. “Always wondered why but every reason I could come up with just makes me shake my fucking head. It is what it is.”
