Dave Bautista has actually made obvious that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 will be his last time playing Drax the Destroyer, however that does not suggest he isn’t completely purchased making the film a substantial success. While promoting his brand-new film Knock at the Cabin, Bautista hyped up the most recent addition to the Guardians franchise, calling it the very best of the trilogy. During an interview with Uproxx, the wrestler-turned-actor stated:

“It’s very emotional. It’s emotional, it’s dark, and it’s deep and it’s inspiring. I think this is going to be a special… Obviously, I haven’t seen it and I always feel like that every time. I thought Guardians was going to be the best, or Guardians 2 was going to be the best. And after reading the script and after being on this film and filming it, it’s just so much better. It’s just so much better, so much deeper. It’s so much more personal. And there’s such a massive inspiring message to this film, but I think it’s going to be the best Guardians. I think unlike a lot of franchises, we’re leaving with our best. We haven’t been watered down as we’ve gone along, but I think we’re leaving with our best film.”

Over the years, trilogies have actually been popular, in the primary, for providing a few of their weakest entries with their 3rd part. However, Marvel Studios have actually definitely bucked that pattern with motion pictures like Captain America: Civil War, Thor Ragnarok, and Spider-Man: No Way Home providing their sub-franchise finest with those 3rd motion pictures. This wants to continue with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 this year.

Similar to the death of Tony Stark and completion of Steve Rogers’ story in Avengers: Endgame, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 is set to provide the last act for a number of members of the mangy group of heroes. With Bautista’s exit ensured, the star revealed his shock at just how much of a headline-grabbing story it has actually ended up being. He stated:

“Yeah, it’s weird. I don’t know why it’s like news. So this is my seventh film as Drax and my third Guardians. It was like our trilogy. That’s kind of what we all signed up for, to do a trilogy, and I think this is going to be the last version of our Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s hard (to walk away), but it’s time. It’s the perfect exit. We had those perfect kind of character arcs and such a storybook ending. I constantly relate it to the way I ended my wrestling career. I ended it on a storybook note, and I would never go back and tarnish that. And it’s the same with this with Drax. I just got to end the perfect way. I would never sign up for another job as Drax just to get a paycheck. I would tarnish that, and I won’t do it.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 shows up in movie theaters later on this year on May 5.
