According to Dave Bautista, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is all about him. In a recent interview with Digital Spy. 3 would be his last job as Drax upon the termination of his contract with Marvel:
“There was talk for a while about a movie about Drax and Mantis because it was James Gunn’s idea. I really wanted to make a Drax and Mantis movie. I thought it was a brilliant idea, but I haven’t heard anything else about it. I don’t think they are very interested or that it fits into what they have planned. But other than that, as for my obligations, I have Guardians 3 and that will probably be the end of Drax.”
