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
