Dave Bautista: ‘Chris Hemsworth would be perfect for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

Dave Bautista is delighted at the prospect of Chris Hemsworth joining the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.
At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Hemsworth’s character Thor leaves his home of New Asgard after appointing Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie as its new ruler and joins the Guardians of the Galaxy onboard their spaceship, hinting that Thor’s storyline may continue in the next instalment.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer in the Guardians films, endorsed the Australian actor as the “perfect fit” for the franchise.
“I think Chris Hemsworth is a great guy; he’s a fun-loving Aussie. He is what you’d expect him to be,” he said. “He’s very funny, pleasant and upbeat. He’s very social, so I think that would be a perfect fit to be honest with you. I think Hemsworth is hysterical.”
The wrestler turned actor was also asked if the ship was big enough to house so many big personalities, and he replied that they had already proven it was possible with the amount of characters in Endgame and its predecessor, Infinity War.
“Absolutely. If we can all do Infinity War and Endgame together… It was a who’s who there and there were no issues,” the 50-year-old shared. “It was pretty amazing to see. That’s a trickle-down thing. That comes from the top. Marvel set the tone for an environment, and that’s what the environment is.”
It has not yet been confirmed if Hemsworth will be part of Vol. 3, which is being written and directed by James Gunn, who was reinstated by Disney after being fired over a Twitter controversy.
The film, which will also star Chris Pratt and Pom Klementieff, is due for release in 2021.
