Autistic child identifies with Drax in James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

According to ComicBook.com on Saturday in a Facebook post made by "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Slither" director James Gunn, he gave recognition to blog owner Mary Weather Blue. Apparently the blogger had mentioned in her write-up that she had taken her little brother to go see the movie and had immediately connected with Dave Bautista's character Drax the Destroyer.

The sibling was said to be in the autistic spectrum and lacks the ability to understand metaphors. That being said, Gunn took the blog to his Facebook page and this shows that this was an "ah-ha" moment as the child was able to understand his own condition.

Gunn recognize that he was blessed with the ability that most directors have a hard time conveying to an audience. The ability to present to fans content that they could connect with or relate to. Chances are the film was able to even tap into the spirit of the audience in such a fashion that would create a positive outlook on life.

Also, such a thing was conveyed with Star-Lord, played by NBC's "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt, had a deep bond with the movie soundtrack in his vintage tape player. It was the only thing left in his life that was Earthly to him and was a constant reminder of his dead mother.

The inspired blogger gave credence to Marvel Studios and Bautista's ability to allow the child to relate to situation of a culture that is completely literal and known for metaphors completely going over his head. The author did note that Drax was never intended to be autistic, but was glad the young sibling was brought into a positive feeling the following days.
