Marvel fans want one thing, and that thing has everything to do with Avengers: Infinity War. Some very lucky San Diego Comic Con attendees got to see the film’s first teaser in July, but Marvel Studios has kept any official look at the movie locked away. Fans are dying to hear more about the film now that it’s in post-production.
So, it’s a good thing Dave Bautista is willing to talk about the blockbuster.
The actor, who plays Drax the Destroyer, is doing press for his gig in Blade Runner 2049 right now. During an interview with Comic Book Resources, the Guardians of the Galaxy star was asked about his bit in Avengers: Infinity War. It was there the actor said he’s very pleased with what he has seen of the film.
“I’ve seen the little teaser trailers that they’ve put together, and it feels big,” Bautista said.
“It feels enormous. It’s really exciting. Yeah, I’m excited, but my dream was to really interact with Robert Downey Jr., and it’s gonna happen.”
It doesn’t look like Bautista has seen much of the film, but he has seen more than your average MCU buff. Marvel Studios is keeping the film on lockdown from its stars, so fans are excited to hear Bautista say he’s only seen good things so far.
Of course, the actor isn't the only Marvel star who has openly gushed about the blockbuster. Digital Spy reported last month that Benedict Cumberbatch only had good things to say about the movie during a press junket. "It's ten years coming," the actor said of Avengers: Infinity War.
"It's just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it's all sort of pointing to this confrontation,” he continued. "It's amazing to part of it even though I'm late to the party, it's very cool one to be part of it.
There’s no telling when Marvel will finally give fans a first-look at Avengers: Infinity War, but time is ticking down on the studio. Rumors have circulated that New York Comic Con will screen the film’s teaser before it finally goes public, but others are holding off on such an assumption. With Thor: Ragnarok set to premiere next month, fans think it is more likely that Marvel will release the trailer ahead of the sequel so it can be one of Thor’s trailers.
