The funniest line from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was actually an ad-lib from Dave Bautista

Warning: This article contains Avengers: Infinity War spoilers.

Avengers: Infinity War, the recent installment to Marvel Cinematic Universe, made history as the most successful Marvel movie yet with the biggest domestic and worldwide opening. It is poised to set a record for fastest film to rake in $1 billion in business. The upcoming fourth Avengers film and supposedly the final installment to the franchise may also not be its last as Disney execs are considering more Avengers film in the future after Infinity War’s success.

There’s also no denying that Infinity War is the most talked about and action-packed Marvel film to date. Many fans online couldn’t help but share how they felt after seeing the film, and honestly, who could blame them?

That ending may have left many in emotional distress but viewers also had a good chuckle at some of the funniest lines throughout the film.

But if there’s one line that had everyone laughing out loud in the cinema, it’s definitely this one:

This hilarious one-liner from Drax breaks the tension in a standoff scene between Star Lord and Iron Man. And the best part is, it’s actually just an ad-lib from Dave Bautista.

It turns out that some of the funniest lines and scenes in Infinity War were just improvised by the actors. We love these comedic heroes!

In an interview with Yahoo!, Avengers: Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely shared that the line was not really included in the original script.

“The script only said, ‘Where is Gamora?’ ‘I’ll do you even better: Who is Gamora?’ And then one day Bautista just goes, ‘I’ll do you one better: Why is Gamora?’” Markus said. “It’s like, ‘OK, you’re very good at your job.’”

He’s very good at his job, indeed. And Drax has also became so good at standing still that he’s now invisible to the eye! (Like everyone else, maybe?)
