Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista fired shots at the Fast and Furious franchise.
While his fellow WWE alum, John Cena, bagged a role in the ever-growing franchise, it looks like we won’t be seeing Bautista anywhere near it. The wrestler-turned-actor took to Twitter to share what he really thinks about Fast and Furious after a fan suggested the ultimate WWE reunion: Playing a villain in his own Fast and Furious spin-off that will include Cena and Dwayne Johnson.
Batista responded to a fan who wrote: “@TheRock and @JohnCena will get a Fast and Furious spin off also and @DaveBautista will Be the villain.” He retweeted the status writing: “🤢…..thank you for your consideration…🤮 #idratherdogoodfilms”

That’s some major shade coming from the Marvel studios actor. Apparently, he doesn’t think the Furious franchise produces good enough films. And while the thought of jumping in apparently makes him want to vomit, many of his fans don’t seem to agree with the insight.
One Twitter user wrote: “I love you as a human,your work as an actor and wrestler. But fast and the furious is good.”

One even brought up Bautista’s Escape Plan film trilogy with Sylvester Stallone:

The star has never been one to shy away from being vocal about who he wants to work with. Previously, he defended visionary director James Gunn after he was fired from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise by Disney. He even risked his contract with Disney and Marvel by doing so. Speaking to Variety he said: “I am contractually obligated [to do the third movie], but I think that Marvel and Disney –– if I had really stood my ground and said, ‘I don’t want to do this without James’ –– I think that they are decent enough that they would’ve let me out of my contract.”
