Our First Look at Batista as a Bond Villain

Dave Bautista/WWE SuperStar Batista, has been cast in the next James Bond film "Spectre" and Empire has our first look at him in that role.  Here's a direct link to the Empire photo as well.

The also asked "The Animal" about his discussions prior to taking on the part of Mr. Hinx in "Spectre."
"When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions," says the erstwhile Galaxy Guardian. "I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, 'Yes, he's a badass.' I said, 'Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?' He said, 'Very.' That's what I like about Mr. Hinx. He's very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I'm not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is." 
This works for me because you know that's pretty much what Batista was throughout his WWE tenure.  It especially reminds me of the angle that made him a star when he broke from Evolution and feuded with Triple H.  After seeing "Guardians of the Galaxy" I am even more confident that Big 'Tist has what it takes to pull this off.

As an aside, I found the Empire story above via Punch Drunk Critics via DOT NET.
