However, Bautista is best known for his Marvel Cinematic Universe role Drax the Destroyer. On his decision to pursue a career in acting after being a successful wrestler, Bautista told Sports Illustrated magazine: “I did not leave wrestling to become a movie star, I left to be an actor. I have worked really hard to prove myself and deserve the respect of my peers and audiences. It’s been a tough route. I’ve really pursued roles that are the actor’s plays, and I’ve turned down a lot of roles that would have been better suited to me as an ex- wrestler … These are the roles most people expected me to take, but I have chosen to go the unexpected route to prove myself as an actor, I feel that people expect less from a wrestler who has become an actor , but I’ve always wanted to be a serious actor. ” We take a look at some of his incredible films.
