Movie Drax was supposed to be literal minded but really dipped into moron by calling Gamora a whore.
That's on the writers. They just explained to us that he's literally incapable of that sort of thing, calling someone something other than what they are, and then he calls her a hooker. Assassin? Killer? Murderess? Fine. She's been all of those things. But Drax can't call her a whore unless he *literally* thinks she sleeps with people for money, which they just flat out explained to us like, a half hour before. Bad writer! Misogynistic, and also, wrong.
I do miss me some lean smart flying cosmic zapper Drax (instead of Hulk jr. with knives), and wish we could have gotten Moondragon in GotG2, perhaps as yet another 'daughter' of Thanos, taken from her family as a child and raised to be one of his minions. That could have been cool, and made the new female character appropriately super-powered (and not just another martial artist), and Drax's talking about his dead wife and daughter suddenly relevant.
But, whatever will be, will be. Given their track record, I'm sure GotG2 will be pretty awesome.
