We reported on Tuesday that Batista was meeting with Marvel executives about playing Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting a deal has been reached for the former WWE star to play the role.

Batista beat out actors such as Isaiah Mustafa, Patrick Wade and Jason Momoa as he had been in the mix for the part since last year.
