Marvel Studios’ casting of actors for its various MCU characters has not failed to impress the audiences whether it be the Avengers or the Guardians of the Galaxy. The studio has done a pretty good job in finding actors who match the heroic characters in every manner possible. In several instances, The actors improvise their own dialogues to make sure it matches their character’s nature. Actor Dave Bautista, who portrays the MCU character of the giant man Drax, did the exact thing while filming Avengers: Infinity War.
During a recent interview with Yahoo, Avengers: Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talked about Bautista’s perfectly timed one-liner that broke the tension during a heated standoff between Iron Man and Star-Lord on the planet Titan. Notably, Drax’s mention of Gamora during the scene got the two superheroes off track.
“The script only said, ‘Where is Gamora?’ ‘I’ll do you even better: Who is Gamora?’ And then one day Bautista just goes, ‘I’ll do you one better: Why is Gamora?’” Markus explained. “It’s like, ‘OK, you’re very good at your job.’”
The screenwriters also mentioned about Tom Holland’s improvisation of his shattering death scene in Avengers: Infinity War’s final moments. It was pretty emotional for audiences to see Peter Parker‘s final sad plea to Tony Stark who held him in his arms. In the heartbreaking scene, Spider-Man says “I don’t feel so good, Mr. Stark. I don’t want to go.”
McFeely also revealed that initial Avengers: Infinity War draft had the founding Avengers, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), meet in a boardroom early on, joining the other superheroes. Markus also talked about another version of the draft where Falcon went to space instead of Spider-Man.
Avengers: Infinity War is currently playing in the theaters. The next untitled Avengers 4 film is set to debut in theatres next year in May.
