When Yahoo Movies connected with the former WWE star to talk about his new movie, Bushwick — a gripping “you are there” combat movie set in present-day Brooklyn and pitting ordinary citizens like Brittany Snow‘s frantic Lucy and Bautista’s gruff neighborhood guy Stupe against a well-armed Texas militia — Bautista confessed to having a “fuzzy” brain thanks to having just stepped off a plane from China.
The Marvel and DC fandoms may be sworn enemies, but that doesn't mean that an MCU star can't have some fun dream-casting herself as a classic DC villain

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been criticized for its lack of female superheroes — Captain Marvel will be the first solo film starring a female character since the MCU started in 2008 with Iron Man. Director James Gunn talked to Yahoo Movies about his approach to female characters. “I think, especially in Guardians Vol. 2, people will see that … the second story is really the story of the Guardians as a whole,” he told our Kevin Polowy.
James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios Thursday for a Facebook Live discussion about The Belko Experiment — the bloody new workplace thriller he wrote and produced — but conversation inevitably turned to that other little property he masterminds, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The big news surrounding the MCU’s outer-space odyssey today revolved around Gunn seemingly confirming a threequel ahead of May’s release of Vol. 2. In simplest terms, his comments should not be viewed as an announcement that there will in fact be a Vol. 3….
Tie-in products for many big-budget extravaganzas have been largely focused on male characters, be it Star Wars: The Force Awakens (and the lack of Rey toys) or Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron, both of which inspired social media hashtags — #WheresGamora and #WheresBlackWidow — to decry the absence of merchandise for their female leads. With more Marvel movies on the way, the studio’s head honcho is letting fans know that those past mistakes won’t be repeated this summer. During an interview with Slashfilm conducted on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kevin Feige directly addressed the #WheresBlackWidow controversy and offered his support for the outrage that drove the campaign.

Dancing Baby Groot took the universe by storm when he sprouted at the end of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. As the trailers and previews for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 show, the sapling superhero, now free of his pot and ready to rumble, will be a force to be reckoned with despite his diminutive stature. Naturally, with something as adorable and formidable as Baby Groot, the powers that be know fans will be clamoring for one of their own.
Baby Groot hijacks every moment he’s on screen in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, so it only makes sense that Marvel is going to market the heck out of the adorable tree dude (despite what director James Gunn says). Case in point: Hasbro’s newly unveiled Guardians toy line features plenty of Groot in — spoiler alert! — varying sizes.
Looks like another Disney attraction is joining its sizeable graveyard of defunct rides. Expect to see similarly super-sized lines in January 2017 when Disney California Adventure’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror elevator drop gets a Marvel-ously out of this world makeover to become Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout. The details of this new ride were revealed at Comic Con International in July via the below video, which promises parkgoers an “immersive, exciting experience” set in the outer reaches of the MCU’s galaxy, where the titular Guardians–Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and the dynamic duo Groot and Rocket (Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper)–dwell.
Now we know how Chris Pratt landed his star-making spot in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out the exclusive never-before-seen audition footage above of Pratt as Peter Quill, negotiating with Dave Bautista as the muscle-bound and dim Drax the Destroyer in what would become one of the movie’s funnier scenes.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ (AP Photo/Disney - Marvel, File) By Graeme McMillan, The Hollywood Reporter James Gunn continues to take to Facebook to tease Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, with his latest fan Q&A session also hinting at a possible character debut in the next Avengers movie, as well. Taking to Facebook to respond to fan questions Tuesday, Gunn said that the follow-up to Marvel’s 2014 hit would be “something a little bit in the vein of the first movie and also different,” teasing that fans should expect a younger, smaller Groot in the sequel after his rebirth at the end of the first installment — which isn’t a good thing for all of his teammates. “Drax is not the biggest fan of Baby Groot,” he revealed. The follow-up will bring someone new to the team: “I’m not going to give names and I won’t give numbers either, but there will be at least one new character,” Gunn said — although that shouldn’t be taken as a sign that the movie will follow Marvel’s comic book lead and add another superhero from Earth to its ranks (Captain Marvel, Venom, Iron Man and the Thing have all spent time with the team in recent years).
Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn brought Facebook to tears this morning, sharing an emotional story of how the blockbuster Marvel superhero movie connected with some special kids. Gunn posted a note on his Facebook page to mark the one-year anniversary of the film on Aug. 1.
