Bautista Exposes His Inner Fan, From Blade Runner to Infinity War

I remember that you said that you didn’t want to read the whole script for Avengers: Infinity War.

No, I haven’t read it.

In that spoiler-free spirit, what was your takeaway from that experience? Because that is the pinnacle of where Marvel has been going for the last decade. Tell me, from your side of it, what was that experience like?

And that’s what it feels like – it really feels like we’re building this up, this culmination of years and years and years of work that’s just all coming together.

It’s an odd feeling, because you know, we had our own little thing going, it was a fun little family thing with Guardians, and it’s somewhat been broken up. It’s weird going to set and filming or playing Guardians without James [Gunn] there. It’s really an odd feeling. I love the Russo brothers, man – they’re great, and they’ve been very good to me. They’re just incredible directors. But it’s just an odd feeling, but you feel that we’re on to something big.

I’ve seen the little teaser trailers that they’ve put together, and it feels big. 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. [Laughs]

He didn’t let you down on set, right? He was the guy who you needed him to be?

He was, man. I met him well before we started. Well before we even were announced for this, I went to the second Avengers premiere in London, and he went out of his way to come up to me and tell me how much he loved Guardians. That was a big deal to me, you know? That was a huge deal to me. So I already knew kind of who he was as a person and what he was about before we got on set, so I felt comfortable with him.
