Dave Bautista, known for his super roles in the Guardians of the Galaxy films and the MCU movies, is interested in playing the role of Lex Luthor in DCU's Superman reboot. 

It is now up to James Gunn, who has worked with Bautista on multiple projects, to decide if he is the right fit for the role. 

Bautista has said that he is done playing his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel universe and is now looking for new opportunities.

It is possible that actor Dave Bautista could join the DC Universe (DCU) in a superhero movie. This is because James Gunn, who is in charge of DC Studios, is planning to expand the DCU.

Bautista has expressed interest in playing Lex Luthor, after seeing the suggestion put forward by Chris Killian from ComicBook.com.

Dave Bautista was totally sold on the idea of playing Lex Luthor in the Superman reboot after seeing an image of himself next to the iconic villain!

"I saw that picture of myself next to [him]. I was like, 'Man, that's really interesting.' I'd be totally up for that, James Gunn." Dave stated.

He admitted that the thought had never crossed his mind before, but when he saw the image, he was instantly on board.

He wants to make sure James Gunn knows that he is 100% committed to taking on the role. Let's see what happens now.
