The photo features Dave Bautista in full Drax costume, covered in yellow slime. Unfortunately for spoiler-hungry fans, Gunn didn’t reveal any information as to how Drax landed in this predicament.
I will be posting a #GotGPicoftheDay every day from now through the movie opening. They'll be composed of behind-the-scene shots from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 I took on my iPhone, my Leica Q, and a few select unseen set stills. Here's the first one, Dave Bautista (Batista) as Drax in quite a mess. This was uncomfortable as all get out for Dave but, as usual, he puts up with many feats of discomfort to make the Guardians great. #GotGVol2 #Drax #movies
“This was uncomfortable as all get out for Dave but, as usual, he puts up with many feats of discomfort to make the Guardians great,” Gunn wrote on Instagram.
With four weeks until the movie hits the screens, Gunn also announced on the post that he will be sharing a new “Guardians” picture every day from now until the opening.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is set to take place months after the events of “Guardians” as the team travels through the cosmos and attempts to keep their newfound family together all while Peter Quill discovers the truth behind his parentage.
Premiering on May 5, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is a production of Marvel Studios and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell.
