Dave Bautista Comments On Avengers: Infinity War's Brutal Schedule


What happens when you try to cram every single superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe together in one film? You get Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War," and with that all the logistics that comes with assembling so many high profile actors together for one production. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"'s Dave Bautista revealed just how intense the filming is for "Infinity War."

"It’s really bad. [Laughs] Yeah, not to confirm nor deny anything," Bautista told Collider while promoting his Sundance film "Bushwick." Regarding who is and isn't involved in "Infinity War," Bautista -- who plays the warrior Drax in "Guardians of the Galaxy" -- said, "I don’t think anybody who is a current character is not going to be in 'Infinity War.' [Laughs] That’s just my opinion. I haven’t gotten confirmation on who all is going to be in the film, but I think that they’re really going to go all-out on this."

The topic of flying in all the actors at once is brought up, and how impossible a task it may turn out to be. Though this problem could be solved with some special effects magic. "I think they’re going to have to [use CGI] because to bring in that many people who are just so busy, it’s got to be a logistics nightmare. So when they say that there’s something that’s delayed, I don’t even ask because I totally get it. I can totally just empathize with them. I can’t imagine that this is an easy task."
