Batista’s final run in WWE before his retirement was against Triple H which culminated at Wrestlemania 35 a couple of years ago. One of the most popular lines during that feud saw Batista telling Triple H to give him what he wanted over and over again. Batista was also supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame last year but due to timing issues and scheduling conflicts, it did not end up happening. WWE also paid huge money for the return of Batista.
While Dave Bautista was supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020, this did not happen due to the worldwide pandemic and due to previous obligations on Batista’s end. However, fans have been clamoring for ‘The Animal’ to get his due and to be inducted as quickly as possible.
While speaking to Insider, Batista revealed that he has spoken to James Gunn, who is now overseeing the DC universe at Warner Bros. While doing so, Batista realized that he will not be portraying Bane in an upcoming DC movie as he is simply too old now.
“I have had conversations with James about that but I think the direction he’s leaning in, completely rebooting that whole universe, he’s starting from scratch and starting younger and fresher and I think you need to do that.
I think for the DC Universe to be revived, you need to start from scratch, and I think you need to start with younger actors. You need to start to plan for the next 15 years, and I just don’t think you can do that with me. And I understand that. And, also, I have to say that I appreciate that because I don’t want to play a character that I can’t bring justice to it. I don’t think at this point in my career that I can bring justice to Bane anymore. I just don’t know if I could handle the physical part, and I don’t think I would have the longevity to plan ahead for films. So, I just don’t know if I’d be that guy.”
