Dave (f**king DRAX) Bautista cast as ‘Bond 24’ villain


Good for fucking Dave Bautista, man. Dude was one of the biggest surprises in Guardians of the Galaxy for me, proving to be more than an ass-kicking wunderkind. Then news broke that he’s going to be all up in Avengers 3. And now the dude is going to be holding it down as the villain in Bond 24. Wonderful news for the Beefy One.


Wrestler Dave Bautista is going from Marvel to martinis. The Guardians of the Galaxy star has reportedly been cast as a major henchman named Hinx in Sam Mendes’ Bond 24. The film starts filming in December aimed at a November 6, 2015 release.

Latino Review broke the news of the Bond 24 villain casting. Bautista fits the description producers gave a few weeks back about what they were looking for in the Bond 24 villain:

We are looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy.

Hinx (Male, 30 – 45)

Ideally over 6 foot 2 inches. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background.

Bautista is 6 foot 6 inches tall and extremely hot coming off a scene stealing role in biggest movie of the year. As Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, Bautista was a physically imposing powerhouse. But what really made him memorable was the deadpan humor of the character and how well Bautista was able to handle that. Those are traits well-suited to a Bond villain.

What about you? You down with this news? Or nah. Lemme know.
