Dave Bautista Will Quit Guardians 3 if Marvel Drops Gunn’s Script

Over the weekend, Dave Bautista Tweeted that he intends to do what he’s legally obligated to do in regards to his contract and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Now a new interview with the Drax actor is out that gives a different statement.

In an interview with the Shortlist, Bautista says he wants out of his contract if Marvel Studios doesn’t use Gunn’s script:

“Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me.

“I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t.”

He also referenced the statement that the cast made. Saying he doesn’t think it’ll result in Gunn being rehired, but:

“I don’t think [it] will get him re-hired,” Bautista said. “But I hope it opens people’s eyes to James’ character.”

So with that, the James Gunn roller coaster continues.
