Marvel Studios released a photo today from the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie as a New Year's gift to all of their fans. Former WWE Champion Dave "The Animal" Batista will be playing Drax the Destroyer in the 2014 Marvel film, which will be the final project before the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron sequel in 2015. 

Batista is set to make his return to the WWE on January 20th, just in time for the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He will be working a full-time WWE schedule through WrestleMania, and will continue on with the company until taking time off to promote this movie.
