The fate of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is uncertain as the movie has been put on hold indefinitely following the removal of director James Gunn by Disney.
Now, there seems to be a high chance that the movie get cancelled completely as Dave Bautista who plays Drax, one of the key characters in “GOTG” movies, is considering quitting the franchise for good.
The former wrestler-turned-actor revealed on “The Jonathan Ross Show” about his dissatisfaction with how Disney has treated Gunn and felt that they could’ve handled the situation a lot better.
“There’s a bit of an issue. It’s a bittersweet conversation. No – it’s a bitter, bitter conversation, because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn. They’re putting the movie off. It’s on hold indefinitely. To be honest with you, I don’t know if I want to work for Disney… I’ve been very vocal about the way I feel. I’m not afraid to admit the way I feel,” said the actor.
The cast of the “GOTG” have already revealed in an open letter regarding which side they’re taking, and Bautista in particular, has been very vocal about the issue as he continuously poke Disney and Marvel on Twitter.
In early August, Bautista even asked Marvel to released him from his contract if the studio didn’t use Gunn’s script for “GOTG 3“.

It is still not known what will happen to the 3rd instalment of “GOTG”, but if Bautista really back out from the franchise, then this might effect the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole since the studio might need to look for another actor to replace Bautista or simply cancel “GOTG 3”.
Either way, it won’t be a win-win situation for both Disney and Marvel.
