WWE Star Considered For Major MCU Movie Role WWE/Marvel

A WWE star was considered for a major MCU movie role.

In 2014, former multi-time WWE world champion Batista starred in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy film as Drax The Destroyer.

Since then, he has starred in another movies under the role, such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War.

Despite The Rock and John Cena making their way to the DC Cinematic Universe, Batista has remained the only WWE star to make his way into the MCU. However, a new report reveals another who had the chance.

Fightful Select (subscription required) reported that WWE star Damian Priest was asked to read for a significant role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Sources familiar with the situation said that Priest read for the role of Namor, which is one of the most heavily featured roles in the film, or one of the featured members of Talokan.

The report notes that an inquiry was made, but no confirmation on if Priest actually read for the role.
