He said that he believes that "audiences will respond to an alien Zoe Saldana" while in conversation with Entertainment Weekly.

He later added: "One of the reasons Bautista got the part was because his banter, and ad libs, and screen tests with [Chris] Pratt were awesome."

A new piece of concept art from the film was also revealed.
