Leaked footage from Avengers: Infinity War foreshadows a showdown between Drax and Thanos. Could one of these characters meet their demise?
Drax (Dave Batista) declared Thanos as the real target of revenge for the murder of his wife and child at the end of the first Guardians of the Galaxy film — and thanks to the latest leaked footage of Avengers: Infinity War — it looks like he might just get his wish.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
The scene depicts Drax and fellow Guardians of the Galaxy Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) moving in (relative) stealth through the Collector’s Lair. They come across Thanos, who can be seen demanding the location of the Reality Stone from the Collector (Benicio del Toro), the latter last seen in possession of the Stone in Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy. As the Collector explains that he’s sold the Stone, Drax (in typical Drax fashion) threatens to charge Thanos and finally enact revenge for his murdered family.
With rumors that Batista plans to return to action in the WWE in the near future, will Drax’s impetuousness towards the extremely dangerous and immensely powerful Thanos prove to be a fatal mistake? And yes, we predicted Thanos might be paying a visit to the Collector last month — click the link to brush up on the locations of the Infinity Stones.
