Dave Bautista, who entertained fans as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2, is heading to 2018 Wizard World events in Portland (April 14), Philadelphia (May 19), and Chicago (August 25). 

Bautista, whose budding film career has also included a role in the Sony feature Spectre, will greet fans, sign autographs, pose for photo ops, and conduct interactive Q&A sessions at his Saturday appearances at each show.

In addition to his Guardian and Spectre roles, Bautista also appeared on-screen last year in the much-anticipated Blade Runner 2049. In 2016, he appeared in several films including Kickboxer: Vengeance and Marauders, and the year prior he was also in the action film Heist starring opposite Robert DeNiro and Jeffery Dean Morgan. Bautista has numerous films scheduled for 2018 release, including Avengers: Infinity War and Final Score.

The Portland show is set for April 13-15, followed by the Philadelphia event on May 17-20. Finally, Wizard World will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Chicago show on August 23-26.
