Dave Bautista supports Guardians of the Galaxy's director James Gunn
The former WWE star, who features as Drax in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise, was the first to defend Gunn after he was terminated from directing the third film in the series.
Wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista has once again come out in support of "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn saying it will be"pretty nauseating" to work for Disney after they fired the filmmaker.
I will do what Im legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn’t GOTG. Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis . That’s just how I feel https://t.co/Ym4FwruVDu— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) August 5, 2018
Bautista was asked by a fan on Twitter if he will be ok being part of the franchise if Disney declines to re-hire Gunn for the film.
"I will do what I'm legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn't GOTG," replied the actor.
"It's also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis. That's just how I feel," he added referring to right-wing commentator Mike Cernovich, who unearthed Gunn's 10-year-old tweets.
"Guardians" cast members Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Bautista and Zoe Saldana have since signed an open letter asking the studio to bring back the director.
