Batista has now spoken a little more about Mr Hinx. This is the character he plays in SPECTRE.
The Daily Star had a chance to talk to Batista and the former professional wrestler turned actor had a few things to say about Mr Hinx in the new James Bond movie.
He describes the character as more than just a “monster“. He says the character is charming and knows his manners. The character also knows how to dress properly too.
Mr Hinx also sounds like a character that will have a sense of humor in SPECTRE. Although the character is still a cold-blooded killer, Batista noted he has more scenes other than just fighting all of the time.
He also talked with SPECTRE’s director, Sam Mendes, and he wanted Mr Hinx to be a total “badass“. From this interview, it sounds like the character is a gentleman, but he can also get angry to become a violent killer too.
Batista is making a name for himself in Hollywood right now. His first big break was starring as Drax in Marvel’s very funny Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
He previously wrestled for the WWE for many years until he semi-retired in 2010. He came back briefly in 2014, until Hollywood called out to him again.
