Dave Bautista has started to become a famous name in Hollywood after his breakout role as Drax in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Now the actor has gotten roles in Blade Runner 2049 as well as Avengers: Infinity War.

First of all, Dave Bautista talked about his upcoming role in Blade Runner 2049 in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Bautista said he cannot give away too much information about the movie, but he at least gave us the name of who he is playing. You can read his comments down below.

I'm actually terrified about giving out any spoilers. The NDA on that film is ridiculous... I don't know for sure if it's been [announced] or not. I'll give you the name of my character. My character's name is Sapper Morton

Another movie that Bautista is involved in is Marvel's huge Avengers: Infinity War. Speaking with Yahoo Movies, he said that James Gunn played a big part in directing the characters for their scenes in the movie.

The Russo Brothers are the main directors of Avengers: Infinity War, but Gunn made sure the Guardians stayed true to their character. You can see what he said about it below.

I think one of the reasons we were so successful to begin with is because of James's creativity. We had the luxury of him writing for us on Infinity War, and the Russos didn't at all try to make us into something we weren't. They encouraged us to own our characters and be the Guardians of the Galaxy, not their Guardians of the Galaxy

In the same interview, Bautista also talks about how he has a lot of interactions with Chris Pratt (Star Lord) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis) in the movie. He also said that he managed to do some work with Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), although he's not sure how much of that will be kept in the movie.

He thinks the scene could be deleted. Hopefully it makes it to the Blu-ray release if the scene gets cut. Tony Stark and Drax could be a very hilarious scene to watch.
