Following the Rocket Raccoon and Groot featurettes from earlier today, Marvel is now introducing fans to Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) from Guardians of the Galaxy. As it was explained in the trailer, Drax has been on a rampage throughout the galaxy after his family was murdered, with Dave Bautista revealing this character is much more emotional than you might think. Take a look at this brief behind-the-scenes featurette, then read on to learn more about this massive character.
The actor and WWE wrestler was confirmed as Drax back in March, after Marvel Studios passed on Jason Momoa, who was reportedly holding out for more money. The character first made his Marvel Comics debut in a 1973 issue of Iron Man, born as human Arthur Douglas, whose parents were killed by Thanos. He was transformed into Drax the Destroyer by Kronos, when his human spirit was given a new and powerful body.
