Leaked Avengers: Infinity War Clip Spells Bad News For Drax


UPDATE: This video’s now been removed. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Evidence is mounting that Drax will be bumped off in Avengers: Infinity War.

With Dave Bautista said to be mulling over a return to WWE, Reddit has today unearthed what appears to be some unfinished footage (seen below) from the Marvel threequel, and it spells bad news for Drax the Destroyer. It’s not so much a trailer as it is an extended clip, one in which the Guardians of the Galaxy – namely Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax – infiltrate the Collector’s lair only to find Benicio Del Toro’s anti-hero at the mercy of Thanos.

The audio is a little muddled, and it’s safe to assume that those blackouts will be filled in by close-ups of the Mad Titan (and his Black Order, perhaps?) once Infinity War is closer to the finish line. Still, the biggest takeaway here is that Dave Bautista’s Guardian looks primed and ready to exact revenge on Thanos, whom he holds responsible for the deaths of his wife and children.

On a lighter note, Joe and Anthony Russo looked to have the team’s irreverent dynamic down to a tee, as Gamora and Drax wilfully ignore Star-Lord’s command and continue to mosey around the Collector’s hideout. Cast down on the steel floor, Del Toro’s character is clearly in a lot of trouble, so even if Avengers: Infinity War spares Drax’s life, it looks like Marvel won’t be as kind to the Collector.

That’s a pity, really, given the caliber of Benicio Del Toro. But in the interest of raising the stakes, both Joe and Anthony Russo will surely kill off one or two major characters when Infinity War looms over theaters on May 4th, 2018. More on the Marvel threequel when we have it.
