Fans Wait For ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ By Bradley Cooper: Dave Bautista To Play The Role Of Drax the Destroyer

2017 will be a big year for Bradley Cooper as his movie ''Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'' will be released on May 5, 2017. This American superhero film is expected to add more green to the balance sheet of Marvel Studios who are making the film. Dave Bautista is extremely excited to be a part of this ensemble cast.

''He's the lead of next August's Marvel movie, "Guardians of the Galaxy," and is rumored as the possible male lead in "Jurassic World." It's a transition Pratt seems aware of, though he says he's not taking anything for granted'' mentioned Huffington post talking about Chris Pratt, who will play the lead in this movie. Kpopstarz talked about the entire cast of the movie in another article which was published earlier in the month. Bradley Cooper will play the role of Rocket.

"I actually already went in for a visit to Pinewood Studio," stated the actor Dave Bautista in an interview to Comicbook. "Did some screen tests and make-up tests. The process has already started!'' the actor further added. "I'm super excited. They're in the second draft of the script, and I was offered that, but I said 'No, I don't want it until it's ready to go!'" he said. He admitted part of it was not wanting "the pressure of possibly saying something and giving something away" with a laugh, but said it's also just about him loving the material so much.

"To be honest with you, when I read the script of Guardians, it almost put a damper on it. First and foremost, I'm a fan, and the second I know what's going to happen it kind of takes away from the magic a little bit!" Bautista clarified further. That's why he hasn't asked writer/director James Gunn anything about the movie, including the big mystery of who Star-Lord's father will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I honestly think that if I asked James, he would tell me, but I haven't asked him. I always think that if they're not telling you, there's a reason they're not telling you. So I almost don't want to know, because I want to be surprised! I'll probably know before the finished product, obviously, though." He did mention that while he didn't want to know from being told, "that doesn't mean I'm not curious!"

"I know this is going to be great. James [Gunn] is very excited about this film. To see him be soamped up, you really get that feeling that it's going to be something special," he said. He went on, talking about the pressure Gunn has at following-up a hit. "When I asked him before, coming off the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, I knew the pressure was on him to make it better, and I asked him, 'How are you going to top this? How are you going to make it better?' He said, 'No, I'm going to make it different.''

Bautista will play the role of Drax the Destroyer in ''Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.'' He is portrayed as a member of the Guardians and warrior in this movie. He wants to take revenge against Thanos for killing his family. Bautista has chosen this movie after putting in enough thoughts.

Wait for more upcoming updates on this movie. The fans of Cooper are waiting with bated breath for the release of his upcoming movies ''A Dog's Purpose,'' and ''War Dogs'' too.
