Guardian of the Galaxy 2 Drax 3 What If...?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has introduced us to a plethora of memorable characters, and we’ll get to see many in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. From Robert Downey Jr.’s charismatic portrayal of Iron Man to Scarlett Johansson’s kick-ass Black Widow, there are many iconic performances that have helped make the MCU the cultural phenomenon that it is today.

However, there are some characters and actors that have a special something that sets them apart from the rest. Whether it’s Tom Hiddleston’s charmingly mischievous Loki, Chadwick Boseman’s regal and powerful Black Panther, or Chris Evans’ noble and selfless Captain America, these characters have captured the hearts of fans and become staples of the MCU. They bring a depth and complexity to their roles that makes them a little more super than the other superheroes. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige shares his thoughts on who he thinks is one of them during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 press conference.

Kevin Feige Thinks Dave Bautista is One of the Best Actors in the MCU

After the hilarious “Pom Plane Story” where everyone exposed Karen Gillan’s bathroom business and the conference began to hilariously derail, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige seized the moment to praise the Guardians of the Galaxy team. But also highlight some of the cast who could not be present at the conference.

I want to say one thing.  Which is, just about this cast.  Which is amazing.  And the cast members that aren’t here.  And Zoe who is just such a key to this. And I think kills it.  And in particular, Dave Batista.  Who I think watched the movie last night.

And we’re talking about moments that tear us up.  When he watches.  I’m not going to give anything away.  But he gives an expression at the end of the movie.

And I literally am like, not only is Drax one of the best characters in the MCU.  Written by James.  But I think Dave Batista has become one of the best actors that we’ve ever gotten to work.

But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life—a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
