When Disney made the decision to fire James Gunn, Dave Bautista was the most outspoken cast member and he didn’t shy away from tearing into the studio and making it clear that he would only play Drax again if they forced him to. Well, Gunn has since been rehired to take the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the actor has now weighed in on where things stand with him and Disney.
While Marvel Studios is overseen by Disney, it makes sense that Bautista wouldn’t have spoken to anyone at the latter company because there would be no real need in a situation like this.
The rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 cast also stood by Gunn and punishing them would be a huge PR disaster for the studio. As for why he defended Gunn, he added: “James is my friend. I love him. He helped change my life and I know he’s a decent person. He was being attacked. And what do you do when your friends are being attacked? You defend them, or you’re not really a friend.”
