James Gunn is clearly joking when he says Dave Bautista took saxophone classes for ten years… however what if he wasn’t? Consider the chances. The ending of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” already sees the residents of Knowhere dancing like Rebels and Ewok villagers in “Return of the Jedi,” a movie that turns 40 this week. In the 1997 Special Edition re-edit of “Return of the Jedi,” George Lucas famously inserted a brand new musical quantity, “Jedi Rocks,” written by jazz musician Jerry Hey and carried out by the Max Rebo Band.
Cross-reference that with “I Don’t Know What Christmas Is (But Christmastime Is Here),” carried out by the Old 97’s in “The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special” (see above). What I’m making an attempt to say, and not using a trace of hyperbole, is that Gunn must get his priorities straight, overlook about working DC Studios, and simply return and provides the “Guardians of the Galaxy” trilogy the instant Special Edition remedy, including the Draxophonist to any scenes the place it might be applicable for Drax to play the saxophone (or inappropriate — his social abilities aren’t the most effective). Either that, or Marvel Studios must do an emergency episode of its “What If…?” animated sequence, centered fully on Drax’s musical profession.
That profession continued within the 2018 “Infinity Countdown” storyline in Marvel Comics, the place Drax used one of many Infinity Stones to energy up his saxophone and overcome a complete alien military. To assume that not one of the characters’ wealthy musical historical past has made it onscreen but within the Marvel Cinematic Universe is nothing lower than against the law in opposition to cinema and an affront to all humanity. Give us the Draxophonist, you cowards.
