This is not a metaphor: Wrestling site PW Mania (via Slashfilm) claims that pro wrestler Dave Bautista is banking on his success as literal antihero Drax the Destroyer by signing on for more Marvel movies than just Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Specifically, rumor has it that he’ll play “a significant role” in Avengers 3.
Considering that (if the rumors are to be believed) Thanos will dominate the third Avengers film with his continuing search for the Infinity Stones/Gems, this makes a lot of sense. After all, Drax has the biggest bone to pick. Although he would probably ask why we think he should waste his time picking bones, and just use his bare hands on Thanos.
Really, we’re expecting all of the Guardians to appear in Avengers 3, especially after James Gunn confirmed that the two films were definitely connected.
