There's a feeling in Hollywood that due to the incredible success of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie, which Batista has a lead role in, as well as the seemingly universally positive reviews for his work in the film, that "The Animal" is likely to receive offers for some major starring roles in future projects.

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" film had the best opening for a movie in the month of August in history and the 32nd biggest opening weekend for a film of all-time as the film drew over $90 million ($94,320,883) in its opening weekend.

“Hercules,” starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, fell to $11,010,367 in its second weekend, a drop of 63% from the opening weekend.
