Avengers 4: Dave Bautista Promises To Be More Jacked Than Josh Brolin
It's Drax the Destroyer vs Thanos for Avengers 4! Sworn enemies in the comics as the Mad Titan killed Drax's family! Now Dave Bautista is ready to take on Josh Brolin the the battle of the muscle men!
In preparation for his new Deadpool 2 role as Cable, the 50-year-old Josh Brolin took to the gym and hit the weights hard. Brolin has been posting about his fitness goals on Instagram where it hasn't gone unnoticed as Dave Bautista is blown away.
"I am known for being in shape and being a big guy, and he actually made me self-conscious!" the 48-year-old Bautista told THR. I swear to God, I promised him that in November, when I do some work on [Avengers] 4, I told him, 'I will be in better shape for that because you make me self-conscious, fucker! [laughter]'"
Dave Bautista explains the first time he saw Josh Brolin following Brolin's transformation into Cable.
"I was out in California in June doing another project, and he walked up to me at Gold's Gym and goes, 'Dave,' and I am looking at him. And he said, 'It's Josh,' and I was like, 'Holy fuck!'" Bautista said. "He literally transformed himself in a matter of months. He is a stud. He is not only jacked, but he is shredded. His face is all sunken in like a model. He is like a completely different person."
The article also notes at the recent D23 Expo, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige suggested Drax might be able to take out Thanos, with Brolin responding, "Drax ain't shit."
Deadpool 2 starring Josh Brolin as Cable has a June 1, 2018 release. The Avengers 4 starring Josh Brolin as Thanos hits May 3, 2019.
Dave Bautista will be back for Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Alright. A workout tip? From me? It actually makes me laugh. Worked out at Gold's this morning with Kathryn. Leg day. I hate leg day but always feel good afterward. 30 mins of cardio after that. 15 mins of abs. I always warm up. For full workouts go to @iambuilt. Justin and Steph Lovato have really put together some good, thoughtful, inspired workouts. What I like the most about them are they don't go too heavy (very injury conscious), they are really strong on form (very injury conscious) and they are all about shocking the muscle by mixing up workouts (best results). Here's the deal: the clean eating thing is so much of it. It's okay to cheat, but prolonged cheating will make you feel like shit. The point is to feel good and I think most of us have a problem feeling good for too long. Have a cheat day that you set -- better, a cheat meal, but if you want to take a day, fuck it. A routine right now is I like to workout in the morning. I eat 5-6 meals a day of protein and fat (fat in eggs and almonds), carbs at night. I know a lot of vegans and I don't eat too much meat except fish. I love my fish. Quinoa is great for protein. Mushrooms are great for protein. Forbidden rice is great for carbs and nutrients (black rice). I tried intermittent fasting but for what I'm doing now, I can't hold the size; I need to eat. The minute I put starches in I start to explode. I did that during "Legacy" and I got up to 240 in no time. My workouts are typically two hours long: an hour fifteen of lifting, 30 cardio, 15 abs/stretching. The key is to start light at first. If you've been away from it for a while, the pain is unattractive. Don't go too heavy. It'll set you back, and you won't want to go. Do enough to feel sore and touch that feeling that you're dying a little bit. Mix one day in of 30 mins of anaerobic work. That feeling will start to transform into strength and you'll actually come to enjoy it. Progress. When I stop all this, I just don't feel as good: my knees are better because of it, my back problems are gone, I sleep better and I have better energy. I train 6 days, rest one.
