Dave Bautista Wants A Drax Movie With Luis And Korg


The Marvel Cinematic Universe films have always been known for their choreographed action sequences and a wide cast of characters, but the past few movies really ramped up the comedic factor. Thor: Ragnarok ushered in a new era for the Asgardian legend, with a renewed focus on visual design and quippy dialogue. While Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie were standouts, it’s hard to deny the inevitable charm of Korg, the soft-spoken and downright hilarious Kronan warrior who helped Thor and company escape Sakaar.

Last year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp largely distanced itself from the greater narrative seen in Infinity War, and as a result, director Peyton Reed was able to place a bigger emphasis on comedic action sequences and a colorful cast of side characters, including fan-favorite Luis, who (thankfully) had the opportunity to grace audiences with another trademark long-winded monologue.

Now, it seems a couple of diehard Marvel devotees are holding out hope for a movie where Luis, Korg and the always-literal Drax would sit down and have a conversation, and a few Guardians of the Galaxy actors have pledged their support. As reported by Epic Stream, MCU veteran Dave Bautista’s expressed his interest in working with Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Watiti and Ant-Man star Michael Pena. Better yet, Mantis actress Pom Klementieff chimed in, too, saying she wanted to get it on the action.

Truthfully, there’s a slim chance that the Guardians of the Galaxy would find themselves in the same place as one of Ant-Man’s best friends, but there’s a good chance Korg and Drax might appear on screen together. After all, Avengers: Endgame hinted that Thor could join the intergalactic ragtag group of heroes, and personally, I’d love to see everyone’s favorite Kronan warrior come along for the ride.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is rumored to release sometime in 2021, so we’ll have to wait a couple of years to see if our predictions come true. Fingers crossed, eh?
