Few things in life are as pure as Dave Bautista’s devotion to his Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn. Earlier this year, a gaggle of bad-faith trolls got him fired from Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 over a series of old, offensive posts he made on Twitter, and Bautista, who plays Drax in the series, emerged…
