Actor Dave Bautista has been very vocal about Disney firing James Gunn and not allowing him to direct the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

The actor has now spoken out that he does no really care if this costs him the role of Drax.

In an exclusive interview, HeyUGuys talked with Dave Bautista about the current situation concerning James Gunn's removal. You can read his comments posted down below.

I’m aware that this could possibly cost me a job I care for very much, but at the same time it’s an integrity issue, it’s a loyalty issue. So I’m not going to bite my tongue for anything, that’s just who I am as a person. I’ve tried to actually be very choosy about what I say and the way I say it. I don’t necessarily mean to be disrespectful but at the same time, I have to say what is on my mind and in my heart. I’ve just been honest. It is what it is if it costs me a job that’s just what happens. I always think as it like you can’t threaten a poor man with poverty. I grew up poor, I know what is like. I’m not afraid of losing money, It means nothing to me. I will wrestle in backyards in front of 10 people if I have to make a living. I’m not going to be flexible with my integrity.

If this current situation affects his Hollywood career, Dave Bautista could always come back to the WWE and wrestle his final matches.

Dave Bautista has said in the past that he would like to wrestle Triple H in a future WrestleMania as his retirement match.

As of right now though, production for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has been put on hold as Disney is still thinking of a replacement for James Gunn.

In my opinion, Disney should hire Taika Waititi as the director as he made Thor: Ragnarok really funny.
