Dave Bautista was popular during his WWE days from 2002 to 2010, then in 2014, and during a final run from 2018 to 2019. However, times have changed, and he is now mostly known as MCU's Drax the Destroyer since 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. 'Gears of War' creator Cliff Bleszinski has now made it known that he'd like to see the actor appear in the upcoming Netflix film based on the popular video game series.

Netflix confirmed that it was in the process of creating a live-action movie and an animated series that is tied to the beloved Xbox franchise.

Bleszinski also stated that Ryan Reynolds would be a good casting choice for Baird, and went on to say that he doesn't want Chris Pratt involved with the movie whatsoever. Obviously, it remains to be seen if Netflix's adaptations follow the same story as the games. 'Gears of War' is a media franchise centered on a series of video games created by Epic Games, developed and managed by the coalition, and owned and published by Xbox Game Studios.
