Drax Was In The Dark About Infinity War Script

Next year’s Avengers: Infinity War has had a huge level of secrecy surrounding the production and script. The trailer which aired at D23 and SDCC has so far been kept offline, and all the hints so far have been that no-one else will see them until it hits cinemas.

Every Marvel fan is hopping up and down in anticipation, and at least one of the cast is equally eager to see it.

Even though the principal photography wrapped last month, Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista (Drax) has never read the full Infinity War script.

When asked on Twitter what he thought of it, the actor replied that he had actively avoided looking at anything not directly related to him, prefering instead to make the most of the moment when he first sees it at the cinema.

Obviously, Bautista was forced to see the bits of the script that he was in. In an interview on Good Morning America recently he recounted the moment when the Guardians Of The Galaxy crew first meet Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

“When we shot it, it was just so ridiculous,” Bautista recalled.

“We had a lot of fun with that whole scene. It’s kind of the first interaction between the Guardians and Thor, obviously.” he said. “There’s just so many jokes to be made there with how handsome and perfect Chris Hemsworth is and how insecure Star-Lord is. A lot of good fun and a lot of good humor.”

While Bautista is voluntarily in the dark, it seems Tom Holland (Spiderman) has been kept away from the script by Marvel to stop him telling anyone anything about Infinity War.

“I don’t know anything about the film, if I’m honest,” Holland said in June “I just know I’m in it.”

“The funny thing is about that movie is I showed up and I was like, ‘Can I read the script?’ And they were like, ‘No, you’re terrible at keeping secrets.'”

Avengers: Infinity War will draw together strands from all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films so far, and comes out in Australia and New Zealand on April 25 2018, in the UK on April 28 2018, and will hit US screens on May 4 2018.
