Dave Bautista is not content with playing just one beloved comic book character – the Guardians of the Galaxy star wants to add supervillain to his resume. Bautista revealed that he tried to land the part of Bane in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, but despite his best efforts, he could not. Which may be for the best since the film is already jam-packed with some of Batman’s most famous rogues, including Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Carmine Falcone.
The story started this weekend, when a fan on Twitter asked Bautista about speculation on whether the Guardians of the Galaxy actor could be cast as Bane in the upcoming The Batman. “I just read an article speculating that @DaveBautista may be, should be, could be, playing Bane in the new #Batman movie with Robert Pattison. Please, DC movies…make it happen,” the fan wrote.
Bautista replied with short and concise shutdown of the casting rumors: “Unfortunately it’s not. Tried my best.”
The Batman is currently slated for release on October 1, 2021, after being pushed back from an earlier summer date.
