Dave Bautista Might Not Return for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3′

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. Disney

In a new interview to Good Morning Britain, the Drax actor said that he wasn't supposed to tell anyone that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be returning - with more screen time - in Avengers 4, but since no one stopped him, he's comfortable talking more about it. It's a bitter-sweet conversation.

Bautista continues to defend the director and when the British talk show host asked about the future of his involvement in the franchise, specifically the third installment, he said, "It's a bittersweet conversation - um, no, it's a bitter-bitter conversation, because I'm not really happy with what they've done with James Gunn". They're putting the movie off, it's on hold indefinitely.

Now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is on hold indefinitely despite being scheduled to go into production this month in Atlanta. "But I know I'm in Avengers 4".

The former wrestler-turned-actor revealed on "The Jonathan Ross Show" about his dissatisfaction with how Disney has treated Gunn and felt that they could've handled the situation a lot better.

China meeting its African colonies
China defends continued lending to Africa on the grounds that the continent still needs debt-funded infrastructure development. Data shows that China-Africa trade amounted to $170 billion in 2017, a 14.1 per cent increase upon the 2016 figures.

Gunn was sacked by Disney in July after years-old tweets resurfaced in which the writer-director was making jokes about entirely unfunny topics such as pedophilia and rape. James' tweets, which ranged from 2009 through 2012, were shared by The Daily Caller, igniting the whole controversy.

Bautista took issue with Cernovich, who has "joked" about rape in the past, tweeting things like "Date rape does not exist".

Dave Bautista was the first one from the Guardians team to come to the director's defense. In fact, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 was in pre-production when Gunn was sacked for tweeting offensive jokes a decade ago.
