Drax Actor Dave Bautista Responds To Disney's ‘Black Widow’ Lawsuit

Drax Actor Dave Bautista Responds To Disney's ‘Black Widow’ Lawsuit

And he seems amused by the situation

Black Widow has had a difficult release, mostly because the film was supposed to come out during the pandemic. Of course, to make sure people stayed safe, public places like cinemas had to close for an extended period which pushed releases like Black Widow and James Bond film No Time To Die back. Rather than waiting for everything to go completely back to normal Disney decided to release Black Widow on Disney+ alongside a cinema release, so those that wanted to see the film without going outside could still see it. This has led to Scarlett Johansson suing Disney.

As we have already reported, ScarJo is suing Disney, claiming that the release of Black Widow was in breach of her contract. The star is claiming that releasing the film on Disney+ cost her millions as her bonuses depended on the film hitting box office targets. As the movie was released on Disney Premier Access, it's likely it will not reach the box office targets set. According to Variety, although Black Widow has done exceptionally well for a pandemic-era release (the film has brought in $319 million globally, $60 million of which was on Disney Premier Access), it's still on track to be one of the lowest-grossing Marvel films ever.

Here is the trailer for Black Widow...

Now, however, Dave Bautista who plays the hilarious Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has commented on the situation. Though Bautista apparently has plans to step down from playing the alien warrior, he has posted on Twitter: "Told em they should've made a Drax movie but noooooo!"

Yeah, this is obviously a joke on Bautista's part but he does have a history of chasing his film dreams. He has tried endlessly to get a Gears of War movie or even TV show made, he wants to play DC villain Bane, and he has even expressed he wants to play Ernest Hemingway if Hollywood is interested. We wouldn't put it past him to have asked Disney for his own Drax film too.
