Former WWE Champion considered for Marvel Movie role

ComicVine.com is reporting that Dave Bautista (Batista) has met with Marvel Studios and is being considered for the role of Drax the Destroyer in “Guardians of the Galaxy” which is scheduled to come out on August 1, 2014.

Bautista was one of the three finalists and screen tested for the role a month ago. The studio made the offer to Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) who wanted more money than Marvel was willing to pay and turned down the role.

This movie is expected to be a large piece of the puzzle that leads to The Avengers sequel scheduled for 2015 and could be a big deal for Batista if the movie is a success.
