At last week’s San Diego Comic Con event, Marvel Studios hosted a surprise panel for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, featuring former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista playing the role of Drax the Destroyer. (Video above)
During the panel, Batista said, “I’m still to the point where I go to set every day and I can’t believe I got this job.” He also revealed that he fought incredibly hard for the role and broke down crying when he landed it.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told the audience that Bautista is gonna “freak people out” when they see him in the movie.
