Former WWE wrestler Dave Bautista is riding high on the success of Avengers: Endgame, which is killing it at the box-office. The re-release of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) film is aimed at making Avengers: Endgame the most successful film of all time. Currently, the title holder is James Cameron's Avatar (2009) which stands tall at $2.788 billion. Bautista, who recently announced his retirement from pro-wrestling, will next be seen alongside Kumail Nanjiani in Stuber. Other projects include My Spy and Dune.

John Cena's recent signing into The Fast and the Furious family encouraged a fan to tweet to Dave to star in the franchise as well. The Rock is already a part of the F&F family and will be seen in Hobbs & Shaw alongside Jason Statham, while Cena will be seen in Fast & Furious 9, alongside Vin Diesel. The fan tweeted, "@TheRock and @JohnCena will get a  Fast and Furious spin-off also and @DaveBautista will Be the villain." Bautista replied back, ".....thank you for your consideration... #idratherdogoodfilms"

Furthermore, another fan tweeted in defense of the F&F franchise, "I love Bautista but the Fast franchise has some of the best and most creative action pieces in recent memory, easily among the most enjoyable movies of the past decade." To this, Bautista quipped, "I normally wouldn’t even engage but I think the fact that "I Barf On Babies” is your twitter handle really says it all. ... but thanks for the love dude. I really appreciate you keeping it positive and I totally respect your opinion."

I agree with dave that the fast and furious franchise is becoming worse part by part and his decision to stay away from it.rock and cena are good actors and has a lot of potential within themselves.

Cena is the greatest of all time!

Oh he is doing great with marvel to prove it cena or rock none could have done the foolish comedian drax part on "gotg". He is really pulling amazing performances with the character.

When it comes to acting then Batista is better than jhoncena and comparable to the rock

Good films yes, but not good films based on the character you played. It was because of the main stars. The Rock and Cena are far more talented as I have much preferred their films to yours.
