Drax Actor Jokes About the Film as the Next Avengers Movie Began Filming Today
The fan hype for what may be the biggest undertaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever can now officially begin, as Avengers Infinity War filming has officially commenced. The film is expected to be the culmination of every bit of groundwork that the interconnected film series has laid thus far, with a superstar cast possibly unlike any ever attempted. One of the most significant feats that this next film will attempt will be to officially assemble the Guardians of the Galaxy alongside the key Avengers and other earth-focused superheroes that the MCU has mainly focused on thus far. Now, we get to hear about this great feat from everyone’s favorite literal-minded Guardian, Drax the Destroyer himself.
A new interview with Batista, who portrays Drax, has been posted on Collider which shares his thoughts on the new project. In the interview, Batista acknowledges the incredible quantity of cast members from previous films that will be returning, and that he believes the studio will try to have every current MCU character in the film at some point. He also mentions the scheduling difficulties of having even a portion of the entire cast available at the same time, by talking about Marvel using CGI to bring the actors together from separate filming dates saying:
I think they’re going to have to because to bring in that many people who are just so busy, it’s got to be a logistics nightmare. So when they say that there’s something that’s delayed, I don’t even ask because I totally get it. I can totally just empathize with them. I can’t imagine that this is an easy task.”
Batista also expresses his wishes to work with Robert Downey Jr., as he considers the original Iron Man film to be his favorite. What do you guys think?
