Source: David Bautista, WWE star, praises 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' says he's ready to geek out in Philadelphia
For the first time in recorded history (which is why it’ news) an actor from an upcoming movie, Dave Bautista / Guardians Of The Galaxy, praised said movie to the press in such a way that might inspire others to see the movie. “This is a monumental moment,” stated president of Marvel Studios and former Mr. Brittney Spears, Kevin Fiege, “to have someone from the film actually tell people, in public, that they liked it and that others should see it will revolutionize the whole concept of film marketing.”
Reported by lehighvalleylive.com, Dave Bautista went on to say that:
[he is] beyond excited for "Guardians" and praises the film's director, James Gunn. "James made it so easy," he says. "Now the pressure's on. Now it has to live up the hype ... It's a scary thing when people's expectations are so high."
“Did you read that?!” exclaimed Fiege, “He not only praised the movie, but also the director! This is gold!”
In a completely different and exclusive interview that totally happened in real life, “The Animal” told the Outhouse that he “would watch a solo movie starring Drax; I could see it as a trilogy, you know. They'd probably want to pay the actor a lot of money."
Unfortunately, as with most things regarding Bautista, it only got worse as he kept talking. From LVL:
Bautista credits [Vin] Diesel for helping him by offering tips and pointers while filming "Riddick." Bautista is hoping to have more opportunities to stretch his acting range — he says he is a fan of dialogue-driven movies — and would love to be cast in a smaller, "grittier" independent film.
Luckily the exchange ended there with a small postscript added to the Outhouse Exclusive:
"I'm just saying, Drax was the highlight of the film. I really enjoyed his performance."
Guardians Of The Galaxy starring Dave Bautista will be in theaters on August 1st, but if you want to see Bautista before then, you can head over to Wizard World Philadelphia on June 21 where you will have the opportunity to be gouged even more than you are at the theaters for an off chance that the four time World Heavyweight Champion can spell his name correctly on an autograph.

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
