In August word leaked that producers were looking for Hinx to be this generation's Oddjob or Jaws, two iconic Bond baddies played by Harold Sakata and Richard Kiel, who passed away this year, respectively.
Earlier this year he had a starring role in Guardians Of The Galaxy, which grossed over $750million worldwide.
His tenure as a Marvel hero has only begun though, as Dave will return for Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 and is rumoured for The Avengers 3.

The Oscar-winning actor has been widely expected to assume the role of legendary villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion - but Christoph, 58, insists his part in the much-anticipated new film is more complex than speculation suggests.
Asked if he would head the fictional terrorism organisation, Christoph told Collider: ‘No. No. It's more interesting than that.’
This came shortly after Daniel Craig said the script for Spectre is ‘better than we had last time’.
