Avengers: Infinity War’s Dave Bautista Reveals How Long Drax Can Stay Invisible


Late last month, Anthony and Joe Russo opened up about the fourth highest-grossing movie of all-time, Avengers: Infinity War. During the Q&A session with Huffington Post, they addressed whether or not Drax (Dave Bautista) did indeed disappear during that rather hilarious moment in the film.

For those in need of a refresher; in an otherwise serious scene between Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax reveals that he’s been watching the entire time. How did the superhuman go undetected by the two, you ask? Well, according to the Destroyer, the duo hadn’t picked up on his presence because, as long as he remains entirely still, he becomes invisible to the naked eye.

While Joe Russo joked “that’s a spoiler” in regards to whether or not he was actually telling the truth, Anthony Russo offered a more concrete response, saying it’s “to be decided.” Overall, the two remained predictably mum on the subject, concluding “all we know is what we can gather from the film. Anything more than that can potentially be addressed down the line.”

Thankfully, then, Drax himself, Dave Bautista, has now addressed the Destroyer’s newfound superpower. In a sit-down with GameSpot, the actor was asked just how long, exactly, can Drax remain in that state, and according to him “there’s no telling how long Drax can stay invisible.” Bautista then explained that James Gunn, who pulled the bit from his “twisted, sick imagination,” can have the Destroyer “stay invisible as long as he [Gunn] wants him to stay invisible.”

Regardless of Dave, Anthony and Joe’s vagueness on the topic, it does sound like we’ll get the chance to see, or not see, Drax again in the near future, as the actor’s already revealed that he’ll be back in both Avengers 4 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. We just hope that one of those films explores his newfound ability a bit more.
