Dave Bautista as Tong Po Revealed in ‘Kickboxer Vengeance’

Tong Po is definitely someone you don't want to mess around with. The first official photos from Kickboxer Vengeance have arrived. They give us a first look at Dave Bautista as this deadly killer. Sadly, we don't get to learn any facts about his training background or his style as a fighter. But we do get to stare on at that amazing body in fear and amazement. He definitely looks like a major ass-kicker.

Kickboxer Vengeance is a reboot of the popular Kickboxer saga that kicked off in 1989 and was headlined by Jean-Claude Van Damme. Since then, there have been four other sequels, none of which saw Jean-Claude Van Damme returning as Kurt Sloane, who started out life as a cornerman for his brother Eric before becoming a master kick boxer himself. This new movie is a true reboot, and has Dave Bautista taking over the role of Tong Po.

Can ‘Star Wars’ Find ‘Guardians’ Star Dave Bautista a Role?

Can ‘Star Wars’ Find ‘Guardians’ Star Dave Bautista a Role?

There aren't too many more franchises bigger than the WWE, the Marvel Universe, and James Bond, so it's understandable why the Superstar would want to conquer Star Wars next. Though it is a pretty big goal, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. Star Wars is a universe made up of all types of alien creatures and space heroes. Though with his stocky frame, he might just be too buff to play a Stormtrooper. And a little too short to play a Wookie.

Dave Bautista is 46-years-old, and he grew up as part of the Star Wars generation. Ask anyone his age, and appearing in a Star Wars movie is probably at the top of their bucket list. Lucky for him, he is sitting in a position where this might become a reality. He has the added benefit of being part of the Disney team with his role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. And he will shoot Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 early next year for release in 2017.

Now, perpetual scoop delivery system Latino Review is breaking the rumor that Batista, as he is known to his original fan base, is being targeted as The Kurgan, the main villain in Highlander.

Latino Review claim that Dave Bautista has already signed on, but that has not yet been officially announced. The wrestler-turned-actor will play a giant barbarian in the Highlander reboot, which is coming from first time director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, a VFX artist.
