It’s now been a month since Avengers: Infinity War arrived in theaters and left audiences shocked with how the war between the heroes and Thanos played out. If you’ve still not seen Infinity War and have somehow managed to avoid finding out how the movie ends, consider this a spoiler warning.
In the final moments of Infinity War, half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe turned to dust after Thanos snapped his fingers using the Infinity Gauntlet. Among those that died were the nearly the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as Spider-Man, Black Panther, and countless more. It begs the question of how, exactly, the MCU can continue given that further Spider-Man and Guardians movies have already been announced.
That’s where Dave Bautista, who plays Drax, comes in. Speaking to Collider about his upcoming film Hotel Artemis, the actor revealed what is truly the most obvious spoiler of all time. “I got a lot of texts saying, ‘I can’t believe you’re dead, your character is dead,'” he says. “They were really like heartbroken and I was like ‘I’m gonna be in [Avengers 4]. I’m gonna be in Guardians 3.‘ I don’t know how they’re bringing me back, yeah but somehow I’m going to make it because, as far as I know, I am going to be in Guardians 3, so I have to be back.”
This should come as a surprise to nobody, really. However, it goes to show just how impossible it is to not spoil something about Avengers 4. Given how over half of the movie’s cast was dusted by the Mad Titan, it’s only natural that someone would have to talk about it at some point.
Thankfully, it likely doesn’t take away from the impact of Infinity War or the excitement surrounding Avengers 4. With nearly a year before the next Avengers movie hits theaters–and the added promise of Captain Marvel joining the team–the MCU may somehow top itself after breaking all of its own box office records with the latest film.
Avengers 4 is in theaters on May 3, 2019. The next MCU movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp, arrives on July 6.
