So what do people think of Fiege's reveal that Drax wants to kill Ronan because of some past tragedy?

I personally think Drax will go for Ronan throughout the movie (which means we will get at least 1 Drax vs Ronan, yay!) but find out towards the end that it wasnt Ronan who was the cause of this 'past tragedy' but Thanos, thus putting Drax on the path to his only purpose being to kill Thanos.

Doesn't bother me, yes in the comics it's Thanos but the person who he is after isn't as important as the drive it creates for the character. Personally I hope they don't change it at the end because it would feel cheap, just to align it with the comics when really the important stuff is already there.

Drax - "ahh you killed my family Ronan I will kill you!"
Ronan - "Wasn't me man, it was Thanos."
Drax - "oh... ahhh you killed my family Thanos I will kill you!"

No thanks, what we've got will work just fine for the films.

Plus, if they're going the Ultimate route, it wouldn't make much sense. In Ultimates, Thanos is basically an intergalactic tyrant who rules over an empire, and Ronan is his son. If the MCU plans to follow suit, then it'd be pretty bizarre for Drax to not recognize that Ronan was doing Thanos' (i.e., his father's) bidding.

I don't mind it. Really can't wait to see Drax vs Ronan play out on the big screen.

I'd rather have Drax's vendetta be against Thanos I think its a better character to use for that. I also really want that panel from annihilation of Drax putting his hand through Thanos' chest at some point.

Definitely, plus, if Ronan is going to turn at the end, like the reports have stated as Pace is signed up for multiple movies, it wouldnt make sense to have him murdering someones family in the past if he is going to be a good guy. A misunderstood bad guy is one thing, but murdering a family is not something a character can come back from in my eyes.

Ronan isnt evil like that, and I dont think they will make him so in the movie either.

Drax vs Thanos was always a superb dynamic between the two and led to some great storylines and conflicts in the comics, why change it?

Hugo Weaving's Red Skull was signed for more than a film despite his reluctance to reprise the role, and he was a damned super nazi.

I think the MCU needs more reoccurring villains, even reprehensible ones.

^ Definitely agree there, so far the only villain that has come back over & over again HAS been Loki. I'd like to see that dynamic transfer over to Thanos as well.

Ugh, why would they go Ultimates?
Seems like Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning have be referenced heavily from the beginning of this and Gunn has even made mention of them and they have approved the script.
Ultimates cosmic is crap.

Well Thanos has that neat trick of being on Deaths bad side all the time so she brings him back to life, think we will see a lot of Thanos in the MCU.

I know, but I'm saying in the same manner as Loki where he always has a different scheme or plan & it's always taken up a level from the last encounter.

Well why would we want a repeat of Loki?

Thanos has one motive right now apparently. To control the universe.

Whatever events deviate him from his path, he will probably be there to recorrect.

I'm willing to bet we see him in atleast 3 movies. Guardians, Guardians Sequel, and Avengers 3

I wonder how powerful Drax will be? Obviously this version of Drax isn't as powerful as old school "Destroyer" Drax.

Perhaps Captain America level strength? Maybe a touch higher?

I like this thought. A touch above Cap's strength level, but someone who'd fight dirtier and deadlier.

I'm pretty sure Drax even though less powerful than before, is still much stronger than Cap.

Not that he'd be the direct authority on it, but I remember Bautista saying at some point that this Drax could take on Hulk and win - unless he was just being cheeky.

Modern Drax, even though less powerful than previously, is a lot more powerful than Captain America. He is more on Iron Man's level IMO, he killed Thanos in his current form remember.

I think somewere between Iron Man and Thor would be about right for him in the movie. He should be able to give Thor a fight, but would often lose to him.

^Definitely, even the modern version of Drax would kick Iron Man's ass IMO. He fought in and survived the Annihilation war after all.

He only killed Thanos because that was some kind of plot device. He was specifically made to kill him and if I remember rightly from that comic a strange aura developed around him as he got closer to Thanos. He's basically Thanos' Kryptonite. Earlier on in that story Thanos survived a planet blowing up. Drax obviously doesn't pack that firepower.

I just think he won't be as powerful as the comic version. I think he'll be stronger than Cap, but not massively so.

Can't wait to find out either way.

That version still fought his way through a bug infested ship to get to Thanos, these bugs had layed waste to much of the universe by that point as well. Drax is beyond Cap in everyway, even the new version.

On another note, Dave Bautista's performance in Riddick gives us a little taste of him as Drax. I still dont like the casting and likely wont until the movie comes out, but he was okay in Riddick and had some decent moments.
