A fan on Twitter propped Dave Bautista as the next entry into the Fast and Furious series after John Cena was recently added as a new cast member to the upcoming Fast and Furious 9. Bautista shot down the suggestion.
Wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista said Disney Studios made a "bad call" when they fired Gunn from the third film in the Guardians franchise and he did not want to be a part of the director's downfall.
Dave Bautista will join Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson in Denis Villeneuve's next directorial venture Dune. Bautista will play Beast Rabban, the sadistic nephew of a baron who oversees Arrakis.
Dave Bautista plays Drax the Destroyer in Marvel Cinematic Universe's Guardians of the Galaxy. He has appeared in his character in first two films of the franchise and was last seen as Drax in MCU's Avengers: Infinity War. He will return in Avengers 4 as well.
Dave Bautista has previously said that working for Disney is "pretty nauseating" after the firing of James Gunn. He has also threatened to quit the franchise if Gunn's script is not used in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.
