Dave Bautista posted on social media yesterday to let Netflix know that he wants to be on-screen for the upcoming Gears of War film. His Tweet consisted of a video clip of him donning the iconic armor of the franchise with the statement:

I can’t make this any easier. @gearsofwar @netflix #marcusfenix #GearsofWar

Netflix acquired the adaptation rights for the video game franchise earlier this month, and Bautista has lost no time in apparently pitching himself as the first protagonist of the series, Marcus Fenix. No names have been officially attached to the production yet, although reports indicate that if a film release is successful, and adult animated series would likely follow to expand on the franchise.
