At the end of last year, Guardians of the Galaxy star, and ex-WWE superstar, Dave Bautista tweeted out a picture of himself on the Warner Bros. lot with the caption “It won’t come to you so get after it!! #DreamChaser.”
It now seems as though Bautista was there to pitch himself as Bane for Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Recently, responding to a comment online where the tweeter wrote that he’d read an article speculating that Bautista could be playing Bane, Bautista explained that he had tried his best to win the role.
Take a look!
Unfortunately it’s not. Tried my best https://t.co/Dfn6UGzzlb

On the known villain front, The Batman will feature Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, and Colin Farrell as Penguin.
A few weeks ago, it was announced that Warner Bros. had ordered a TV spinoff to The Batman – a prequel series focused on the members of the Gotham City Police Department that will be exclusive to HBO Max.
The Batman will be a part of DC’s FanDome event on August 22.
