Dave Bautista Was Never Asked To Return As Drax In ‘What If…?’

Dave Bautista has revealed that he was never asked to return as Drax in Marvel Studios’ What If…?.

Marvel Studios is set to debut its first animated series this year. Titled What If…?, the show focuses on detailing and expanding hypothetical scenarios and character arcs that could have potentially taken place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One example of a hypothetical scenario that will be explored in the Disney Plus series is T’Challa being abducted by Yondu instead of Star-Lord. With the would-be Black Panther now in space, T’Challa is the one who forms and leads the Guardians of the Galaxy. The animated series is set to feature a star-studded voice cast from the MCU, with most of the actors from the films reprising their roles. While there are clear exceptions like no Robert Downey Jr., or Scarlett Johansson, or Tom Holland, one glaring omission from the voice talent is Dave Bautista, who portrays Drax.

Most of the actors who won’t be reprising their roles have either finished their contracts with Marvel or are only allowed to appear in live-action projects. While we don’t know the details regarding Dave Bautista’s contract, it’s clear that he’s set to return as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as well as the series’ Holiday Special. Bautista dropped the Marvelbombshell when a fan on Twitter asked the star why he wouldn’t be voicing the blunt, humorless alien.

Dave Bautista has been vocal about his displeasure with Disney over the last few years. He notoriously spoke ill about the conglomerate when they fired James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and he’s not shied away from discussing how Disney “dropped the ball” with the character by focusing more on his comedic side. Nevertheless, Bautista is still set to return as the character in the coming future. Guardians director James Gunn also took to Twitter to discuss his amazement at Bautista not being asked to voice Drax for What If…?.

‘What If…?’: Updated Season 1 & 2 Episode Count Revealed

The updated season 1 and 2 episode count for Marvel Studios’ What If…? has been revealed.

One of the most interesting projects coming out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is What If…?, the studio’s first animated series. Set to explore hypothetical scenarios, character arcs, and plotlines within the MCU, the series appears to be another surefire hit for the studio that just can’t seem to miss. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed back in 2019 that the animated series would consist of ten episodes. It has now been revealed that one episode from the series was pushed back to the second season, resulting in nine episodes. Luckily, the second season of the series will also feature nine episodes.

In a chat with Collider, What If…? executive producer and known Marvel veteran Brad Winderbaum discussed how the change came about.

“We had to push an episode into Season 2. It was just, honestly, like everything else, that was a COVID impact. There was an episode that just wouldn’t hit the completion date, but luckily we do get to see it in the second season of the show.”

Brand Winderbaum continued by teasing the runtime of each episode, revealing that they vary per episode, allowing the storytellers full creative control over each distinctive episode.

“We targeted a half an hour for each episode. Some of them come in a little longer, some of them come in a little shorter. We wanted to tell as many stories as we could and we had a certain budget we had to work with so it felt like that 10-episode — now 9-episode run — was the right quantity.”
