Dave Bautista is a highly sought-after actor in the entertainment industry, gaining recognition through his portrayal of Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. He has successfully transitioned from a former WWE wrestler to a successful actor, highlighting his versatility and commitment to acting since leaving WWE. That being said, it appears he finally bid farewell to Drax The Destroyer now the Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 released.

Prior to securing the role of Drax in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Bautista faced financial difficulties due to tax problems. However, his portrayal of Drax kickstarted his career and led to notable roles in Blade Runner 2049, Dune, and his recent film, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

The Animal portrayed Drax The Destroyer for the very last time in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 3 film, which signalled an emotional end to their story.

Batista took to Twitter and uploaded a video of himself, where he bid goodbye to his Drax The Destroyer character and made it clear he will forever be grateful for his incredible journey.


Every day I say a little prayer for Drax. The role that changed my life. Forever grateful to the fans and my Guardians family. What a magical journey it’s been. Thank you for letting me be your Drax. 🙏🏼 #DraxForever

Guardians of The Galaxy 3 dropped today and it has already been a hit with fans and critics alike. We will have to wait and see what’s next in store for Batista, now that his Marvel venture is seemingly done for good.
