Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista is back as Drax, but not on the silver screen. In a new promo for Marvel and FoxNext's mobile game Marvel Strike Force, Bautista lends his voice to the jolly green alien.
The promo opens with an original character, who stands in for the player. A S.H.I.E.L.D. medic, the character feels severely outmatched by his teammates: Captain America, Thor, Elektra and -- of course -- Drax. His musings become prophecy when he takes a tumble out of the quinjet, causing Drax to unleash his signature laugh.
The game pits players against Ultimus, a Kree Eternal and warlord. The game's version of Ultimus is fixated on Earth, as he has traveled from dimension to dimension, conquering alternate versions of the planet. Now he has arrived on the Avengers' Earth and is looking to keep up his streak. Only S.T.R.I.K.E. (Strategic Tactical Reserve for Interdimensional Key Events), a British intelligence agency not dissimilar from S.H.I.E.L.D., is equipped to deal with the threat.
According to the game's official description,
