Gigantic WWE Wrestler Dave Bautista to Star in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has found its Drax the Destroyer in an actual human destroyer, WWE wrestler Dave Bautista. Drax is "a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos. His powers include flight, super-strength and energy blasts," and the pleasure of getting to act alongside Chris Pratt. Bautista is a long way from following The Rock's Hollywood trajectory, although he appeared in The Man with the Iron Fists and will show up in Vin Diesel's Riddick later this year.
