I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

"I’m very interested in writing and directing - all aspects of filmmaking. I’m pretty much a geek for the way a film is made. Even doing a film - or a TV show - purely as an actor, it is very interesting to me to see how the filmmakers get it done. I feel like it is a huge learning experience. So yeah, that’s a kind of convoluted way of saying I am [interested in more behind-the-scenes roles] - not that I want to move away from acting. Just be involved in all aspects." — Joseph Morgan
