WWE fighter cum actor Dave Bautista (who recently appeared in “The Man with the Iron Fists”, and next appears in “Riddick” with the equally muscular Vin Diesel) will play ‘Drax’ in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Bautista bet Isaiah Mustafa, Patrick Wade and Jason Momoa to the role of ”a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos (the villain in the final-scene tease of Avengers). His powers include flight, super-strength and energy blasts.”

Chris Pratt (“Zero Dark Thirty”) has the lead role in “Guardians of the Galay”; he plays “Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Pratt), a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone want, according to the plot description.”

The film, directed by James Gunn, is now on the hunt for actors to play “Groot, a giant tree-man; Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered animal with a knack for guns and explosives; and Gamora, the last survivor of her species who was saved by Thanos to be his assassin but now battles him.”
