Dave Bautista Has A Great Idea For A Star Wars-Guardians Crossover

Having recently made his debut in the James Bond series with Spectre and having already established himself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians Of The Galaxy, you’d have thought that Dave Bautista would be done with working on huge franchises. But the former wrestler believes that there is still ample room for him to appear in a future Star Wars film. In fact, the good people over at Disney will be glad to hear that Bautista is already thinking of synergy.

That’s because Dave Bautista has dreamed up the perfect scenario for when he could appear in Star Wars, and he wants to do so as Guardians Of The Galaxy’s Drax The Destroyer. But he’s not greedy. He’d also be happy to see either Vin Diesel’s Groot or Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Racoon appear in his place.

Speaking to MTV International, Dave Bautista explained how any member of the Guardians Of The Galaxy could feature at some point in a future Star Wars film. Bautista remarked:

We always thought it would be so great if Drax or even Rocket or Groot just showed up in a Star Wars film. Just a cameo, no dialogue, just passing a scene, maybe a bar scene where Drax and Rocket are just having a drink.

Because of the fact that Disney owns both Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm, the possibility exists that characters from the latter’s cinematic universe could actually pop up alongside the likes Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Kylo Ren, or Poe Dameron.

However, once that happens, the outcry from general moviegoers would likely only be negative. Which would be perfectly understandable. Because there still isn’t a legitimate reason for why Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, or Rocket would be present in the Star Wars world. Even though it would be ridiculously fun to see them do just that. You can check out Dave Bautista’s full interview with MTV below.

What’s more likely is that members from Guardians Of The Galaxy will ultimately feature in a future Avengers film. Is that likely to be either of the Avengers: Infinity Wars? Probably not. However that could all change with the release of the future additions to the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We’ll get a clearer idea of how the team are going to fit into the Universe when Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is finally released on May 5, 2017. Drips and drabs of information regarding the sequel are being released as James Gunn prepares to shoot the hugely anticipated sequel.

There’s already huge anticipation ahead of Vol. 2 since the original unexpectedly grossed $774.2 million upon its release, and with that brings more pressure. James Gunn knows what he’s doing though, and he is the perfect writer and director to handle this stress and hype and still produce a rollicking mainstream blockbuster.
