Marvel executives are meeting with Dave Bautista this week. The WWE Superstar is being eyed for the role of Drax the Destroyer in their superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy.
Jason Momoa was previously believed to have the role, with the actor in serious talks with the studio. Insiders claim the actor was holding out for a better deal. Marvel, a studio that is notorious for its penny-pinching ways, is not willing to move on that deal, and are now set to go with someone in a cheaper price range, with Dave Bautista fitting that role nicely.
Isaiah Mustafa and Brian Patrick were also contenders for the role of Drax, but Marvel's top two choices have always been Dave Bautista and Jason Momoa. No offer has been made to Dave Bautista yet, but if his trip this week is successful, expect to hear confirmation soon.
