The “Chris Pratt” fever just can’t seem to die down.
Taking the role of Star-Lord/Peter Quill, it has always been expected of Pratt to play the character ’till the 3rd installment of “Guardians of the Galaxy“. However, fans are getting into a frenzy as the actor has recently revealed in an interview with GQ that he could be starring in other Marvel films too.
I’m tied to doing 3 more, or 5 more, “Guardians of the Galaxy” or whatever it is, you know, 2 more Guardians plus another couple.
It seems to suggest that Star-Lord will make an appearance in 2 or 3 more movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, other than his “Guardians of the Galaxy” responsibilities. The interplanetary policeman will either have his own spin-off, or will star in other Marvel characters’ movie. The revelation came as no surprise because Marvel’s lead characters are always crossing over into each other’s movies.
It also makes perfect sense for “The Guardians of the Galaxy” characters to appear in both parts of “Avengers: Infinity War”, as there is also the possibility that the adventures of Star-Lord and his partners-in-crime will be overlapped with the escapades of The Avengers.
The universe of Star Lord and The Avengers are tied together by a common enemy: Thanos. Thanos is a super villain searching for The Infinity Stones, a set of 6 extremely powerful stones that have been scattered over several corners of the universe. When the stones are gathered, the wielder will be rendered indestructible and invincible. So far, only 4 infinity stones have been shown throughout the Marvel movies in a not-so-inconspicuous manner.
Principal photography for “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will begin in February 2016, with James Gunn directing the movie based on a script he wrote himself. Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper are expected to return.
The movie will hit theaters on 5th May 2017.
