Dave Bautista on Sunday said he would appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but he is not happy about it.  A Twitter user asked the Drax actor if he would return to the Disney franchise after writer-director James Gunn was released from contract weeks ago after old, offensive tweets were resurfaced by Trump supporters.

Bautista — who, along with the rest of the cast, wrote an open letter asking Gunn be reinstated immediately — said he would play Drax once more, but simply because it is a contract obligation.

 

“I will do what I’m legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for,” the actor wrote on twitter. “GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn’t GOTG.”

In the same post, he took a jab at Disney.

 

“It’s also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis,” Bautista wrote. “That’s just how I feel.”

 

While all the main cast has commented on the situation, Bautista has been the most vocal about his disgust, sharing numerous tweets on the matter.
