Accidentally revealing Endgame spoilers during Infinity War promotion:
I got a little grief for this which I felt horrible for. But you’re really kept in the dark for a lot of Marvel stuff, but for Infinity War and Endgame in particular you’re just really kept in the dark. I didn’t know how Infinity War ended. I had no idea. We shot all our stuff out of sequence, bits and pieces, so I was never privy to scripts. We shot it a little over a year straight, both Infinity War and Endgame, so I didn’t know which parts were gonna be in which movies. I was just really lost. But as we started doing press for Infinity War, I had been talking to the press openly about my work schedule and that I’d been filming for a year on both these films, not knowing how the first film was going to end and that we were going to disintegrate.”
“I actually had a discussion with the Russo brothers, because all they saw was that headline: ‘Dave Bautista’s Giving Spoilers For Endgame.’ And I wasn’t at all. I was just talking very openly about my work schedule and that was before I knew that I was gonna be turned into dust!”
His relationship with Disney and Marvel:
“I hope it’s good. I never actually talked to anybody from Disney. I only ever talk to people from Marvel. And they were very understanding about the way I felt. I got people who are very understanding of where I stood. A lot of them just weren’t outspoken about it. And I just happened to be very outspoken about the way I felt. James [Gunn] is my friend. I love him. He helped change my life and I know he’s a decent person. He was being attacked. And what do you do when your friends are being attacked? You defend them, or you’re not really a friend.”
