"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Dave Bautista has rejected the idea of featuring in "Fast and Furious" franchise, throwing major shade and saying he would "rather do good films".
A fan on Twitter propped the professional wrestler-turned-actor as the next entry into the action drama series after John Cena was recently added as a new cast member to the upcoming "Fast and Furious 9".
"@TheRock and @JohnCena will get a 'Fast and Furious' spin off also and @DaveBautista will Be the villain," the fan's post read.
But, on Saturday, Bautista shot down the suggestion with a tweet that also included two "throw up" emojis.
"Thank you for your consideration", he wrote also with the hashtag: "I'd rather do good films."

"Fast and Furious 9" is slated to be released on May 22, 2020, while the franchise's first spin-off, "Hobbs and Shaw", starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, will bow on August 1.
