There have been many theories on how Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3 might wrap up the trilogy that director James Gunn started back in 2014. After a brief delay, the film is only a few more months away before hitting theaters and it’s been hinted at as the final entry of the current version of the Guardians. Dave Bautista, who plays Drax, has also been quite vocal on potentially leaving the franchise behind.
Now taking to his Twitter page, Gunn may have further added weight to the idea that Bautista may be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe for good after this new entry. While he still keeps the door slightly open he states that “it’s probably Drax’s last movie” and further confirms that the current version of the Guardians will be no more after the events of the film.
It definitely won’t be the same without Drax in this franchise but here’s hoping that he gets a great sendoff in the story. He sadly never truly got to get his revenge on Thanos due to what happened to his family, but who knows what the future might hold for the legacy he leaves behind. Moondragon could still be out there for all we know.
