    Dave Bautista has had a long stint with Marvels as Drax the Destroyer in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ series. However, he has now decided to step down from the franchise after giving it so many years.

    During his appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the former WWE wrestler said that he is sticking to the plan to leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

    This is my seventh film as Drax. And my third ‘Guardians’ [movie]. It was like our trilogy”, he said.That’s kind of what we all signed up for, to do a trilogy. And I think this will be the last version of our ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’”

    Bautista said that he has a “perfect exit” for Drax and that he would not “tarnish” the character by making a comeback, even for a paycheck.

    Earlier this month, the ‘Dune‘ actor said that he is relieved that his journey as Drax is coming to an end. “But there’s a relief [that it’s over],” he said. “It wasn’t all pleasant.”

    He talked about the hardships he faced playing the role. “The makeup process was beating me down. And I just don’t know if I want Drax to be my legacy — it’s a silly performance, and I want to do more dramatic stuff,” he added.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3is scheduled to release on May 5, 2023, as a part of MCU’s phase five. It will mark the end of Dave as well as James Gunn’s stint with Marvel.
