Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn Reveals Why Drax’s Color Is Gray Instead Of Green Like In The Comics

Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn Reveals Why Drax’s Color Is Gray Instead Of Green Like In The Comics

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn has responded to the messages from his fans on Twitter and explained why Drax’s color is gray.

As you know, Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista, is gray in the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. However, as a result of an argument with a fan girlfriend, he asked James Gunn to reveal what exact color Drax was.

James Gunn previously said there was some disagreement about Drax’s color, but he confirmed that Drax’s color is gray. He said that it might turn blue or green due to the lights while shooting, but said that it was gray.

James Gunn replied:

“Sure. This is not the first time a couple has come to me in serious trouble disagreeing over Drax’s color in the MCU. He is gray, but, like most gray things, he can take on a blue or green tint under some lights. But he is definitely gray.”

Also, another Twitter user asked why Drax is gray instead of green as in the comics. Gunn had to take on the character Gamora to explain this.

The 54-year-old director said that Gamora’s color was green and he didn’t want two green characters in the same team. He also said on top of that green, for various reasons, is by far the most difficult makeup to make look like real skin.

Here’s what James Gunn said:

“Gamora was green & I didn’t want two green people on the team. And on top of that green, for various reasons, is by far the most difficult makeup to make look like real skin (blue, yellow, pink, etc are all easier).”
