Dave Bautista hasn’t been shy about his desire to play Batman’s monstrous nemesis Bane, but it looks like the Guardians of the Galaxy actor has put that dream to bed.

in an interview with insiderSpeaking with DC Studios’ new CEO, James Gunn, Bautista said he learned that Gunn wanted to start the next era of the DCU “from scratch” with a “young and fresh” actor.

“I’ve talked to James about it,” Bautista told the insider. “But I think the direction he’s leaning toward is completely rebooting that whole universe.

Gunn’s vision for the DCU means Bane is a role that doesn’t work out for him, but Bautista explained he understands the rationale for the decision. requires “a plan for the next 15 years”, and given how physically demanding playing Bain can be, it may not be an option for him.

“I don’t want to play a character who can’t bring justice, so I have to say I appreciate that,” Bautista added. I just don’t know if I can handle the physical part and I don’t think I have the lifespan to plan ahead.’ So I don’t know if I will be that guy. Hmm. “

In 2021, Bautista shared his desire to play the iconic Batman villain in Justice Con. During his Snyder days in DC movies, Bautista once made an appointment to appeal to DC, and he walked into a meeting and said, “I want to play Bane.”

The decision may come as a disappointment to those hoping to see the 54-year-old actor make the jump from burly Guardians hero Drax to hulking Batman villain Bane, but it’s not until Gunn hits the horizon. As a former Marvel director, Gunn shared on Twitter last week that he’s not afraid to cast Marvel stars in DC films.
