“It was hard to play that part,” Dave added. “The makeup process blew me away. And I just didn’t know if I wanted Drax to be my legacy—it was a silly performance and I wanted to do more dramatic things.”
Dave the star in guard movie with Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Dieseland Bradly Cooper. In the third and final film, the Guardians will face off against Adam Warlock, do Will Poulter, for their ultimate adventure.

But Dave said advertising GQ he is less concerned with the popularity of his career and more concerned with the quality of the films he makes. “Honestly, I might care [about being a movie star]” he say. “I don’t live a great flashy life. I don’t care about the limelight, I don’t care about popularity. I just want to be a better actor. I want respect from my colleagues. I don’t need the prize – I really don’t, man. It’s about experience, about knowing that I’ve accomplished something.”
