Bautista, who plays the blue-skinned intergalactic ex-criminal Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has revealed his intention to quit Guardians Vol. 3 if Walt Disney Studios (the parent company of Marvel Studios) opts to not use the script Gunn had been working on before he was sacked from the film in late July. "Something I expected was the next step, if this is confirmed there will be a massive production delay ahead for the sequel".
Avengers and Guardians star Dave Bautist has been highly vocal in his support for Gunna nd his disgust overteh way Disney has handled teh situation.
Bautista added: "Nobody's defending his tweets, but this was a smear campaign on a good man. F**k this".

The Android 9 Pie release is the proof in the proverbial pudding that Android as an operating system has hit its stride. As if the XL sized notch was not already enough, the Pixel 3 XL will also come with a sizeable bezel at the bottom.
Amid the fallout, the core Guardians cast released a joint letter in defense of Gunn, with Dave Bautista even going so far as to say that he'll walk away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe if Marvel selects another script over James Gunn's.
Disney's termination of James Gunn has reportedly opened up a lot of doors in Hollywood for the filmmaker, writes The Hollywood Reporter. "This is bullshit. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I've met".
The story exploded conservative website The Daily Caller discovered the sensitive and shocking content of tweets made by Gunn from 2009 to 2012 when he was a provocative comedian. Disney looks to be sticking with its decision to remove Gunn as his offensive tweets do not fit with the studio's image. That is a huge vote of confidence, however it is not entirely surprising since most in the industry who know Gunn have come to his defense, unlike the studio he helmed a billion dollar-grossing franchise for. Disney needs to decide if they're moving forward with Gunn's script (and if they don't, they should be prepared for a whole new series of headaches).

It was also revealed that players would not need to grind to unlock any stage because they will be available from the start. This mode favors players who are skilled with multiple fighters and encourages others to diversify their rosters.
Bautista added: "GOTG without James Gunn just isn't GOTG".
The smear campaign Bautista is referring to is the online backlash from people who didn't appreciate Gunn's pedophile and rape-related humor.
