With the enormous success of the superhero genre, a variety of cinematic worlds are currently vying for box office dominance. The DC Extended Universe is constantly expanding, and fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of many favorite characters, including Batman’s foe Bane. Dave Bautista, who plays the villain in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, has expressed interest in playing him.
Oh, it would be Bane all day long. I’ve made no secret about this. I want to play Bane so bad I went to Warner Bros., had an appointment with them, had an appointment with DC, walked in the door, and said, ‘I want to play Bane.’ I’m not kidding. They were a little like ‘Whoa, we’re not even casting Bane.’ I was like ‘I don’t care, I’m playing him’
Dave Bautista made these remarks during a recent appearance at Justice Con. Though he was there mainly to promote his lead role in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, the long-form interview also covered his time as a Guardian of the Galaxy member and his hopes to play Bane on the big screen.
