The Guardians Of The Galaxy are set to appear in Thor: Love and Thunder next week and after that, we will be seeing our favorite space crew for the one last time in their own movie Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3.
One of the silent yet powerful members of the group may disband himself from the space crew and we will not even see him in other movies of the Marvel Franchise. Can you make any guesses about which character is it?
Well, the character we are referring to here is Drax!
Yes, you heard that right. A recent tweet from the director of the GOTG series – James Gunn, has indicated that Drax will not be making his appearance in the future and his story will probably come to an end after the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3.
The tweet from the director said – “I try to never say never when it comes to these things but, yes, it’s probably Drax’s last movie and the end of the story for this group of Guardians.” This response came after a fan asked on his Twitter handle if GOTG will be the last movie with Drax’s appearance.
Another report, that follows the uncertainty of the return of the character was revealed by the Drax actor Dave Bautista. In an interview with Collider, Dave commented on his future as the character Drax in the MCU. He said he is in a weird position with his character, where he is not sure if he will make his comeback as Drax.
He also shared how much this character means to him and how it changed his career. He believes that Marvel will be soon concluding the story of Drax, but he would love to play the role for a much longer time.
In an interview with Collider, he said- “That role changed the trajectory of my life, it’s always going to be special to me. Now that I’m four films in… I really wished they would have invested more in Drax, personally. Because I think Drax has more of a story to tell. I think Drax has a really interesting backstory that they dropped the ball on.
Explaining further, he also said that Drax has a great back story which would give him the opportunity to explore the character more and give an emotional value. The audience loved the comedic side of the character and it would be interesting to see the other sides of Drax. Thus, to see how he evolves as his story unfolds would appeal to the audience.
However, there is a possibility that the other members of the space warriors- Guardians Of The Galaxy will be appearing in some MCU movies later. But sadly we will not be seeing much of Drax in the future as confirmed by the director.
The filming of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 3 has been completed and is scheduled to be premiered in May 2023.
