Next year sees Marvel assembling (almost) all of the heroes of the MCU to do battle against Thanos in the hugely-anticipated superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War, which means that for the first time we’ll be seeing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes sharing the screen with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Speaking to Yahoo! to promote the release of his new movie Bushwick, Dave Bautista has teased this team-up between the Avengers and the Guardians, and in particular the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord.
“I’m excited about some of the stuff we did, but I don’t know what’s going to make it in the film,” said Bautista. “I always thought there would be a lot of good interaction between Tony Stark and Drax, and there was. And Star-Lord and Tony Stark as well. When you put those two guys in a room together, it’s like a spontaneous combustion. Talk about two talented guys who are so witty and smart and honed-in on their craft. It was a spectacle, and I’m so excited I got to witness it firsthand.”
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
