The Illuminerdi has uncovered Dave Bautista’s role in the second season of the Apple TV+ show, See.
Last week, action and television fans were given a gift from the gods when it was revealed that Dave Bautista would be joining Jason Momoa in his new streaming series, See. The show is was written by Steven Knight (The Girl in the Spider’s Web), while Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) directed the pilot and is serving as a producer on the show.
The show takes place in the fictional town of Alkenny, approximately 500 years in the future. In this dystopian future, a large segment of the population has been decimated by a lethal epidemic. The show’s hook is that society has literally gone blind and every human has seemingly lost the ability of sight.
However, the plot is thrown into motion when Momoa’s character Baba Voss, a tribal chief, and his wife give birth to a set of twins, with the ability to see. This causes huge conflict as a competing tribe makes it their priority to capture the children for their own nefarious motivations. Baba Voss is then forced to go on the run to protect his children from the threats of this blind and savage world.
Dave Bautista’s Sibling Rivalry
The internet was abuzz when it was reported that Guardians of the Galaxy’s Bautista would be joining Aquaman’s Momoa on his new streaming show. However, his actual role on the show was not revealed…until now. While we don’t have specifics on the nature of Bautista’s role, we can confirm that he will be playing the brother of Momoa’s Baba Voss.
This is Bautista’s first major role on the small screen and it seems like a natural progression for the performer. The former pro wrestler has steadily grown his acting resume since his introduction to audiences as the fan-favorite character, Drax the Destroyer, in both Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers franchises. However, the actor clearly isn’t intending on being a one-note action star. Bautista has stretched the boundaries of his acting abilities recently in everything from comedies like Stuber, to cerebral science-fiction projects like Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner and the forthcoming Dune.
It’s easy to imagine the two muscle-bound thespians playing brothers in the series. However, it’s equally easy to imagine them going head to head. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see who would win in a fight between Drax and Aquaman? So, hopefully we will see some complexity and double-crossing by Bautista’s character. We can’t wait to see how this turns out and we will keep our eyes open for the latest on this and all other projects.
Season 2 of See is expected to premiere later in 2020 on Apple TV+. How do you see Bautista and Momoa’s sibling rivalry playing out in the second season? Let us know in the comment section or on our social media!
