The release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is almost upon us. Fans can’t wait to laugh at Drax’s one liners, see Star-Lord and Gamora get closer, and Baby Groot to steal our little geeky hearts. It seems the movie will satisfy everyone’s expectations based on the first reactions from the press on social media and the director James Gunn taking to facebook to announce that he will be returning to write and direct the third installment of Guardians Of The Galaxy. Marvel clearly isn’t afraid to show their confidence in our favorite cosmic team of heroes. Now the question becomes, what can we expect from the Guardians moving forward? In particular, what can we expect from Star-Lord played by Chris Pratt.
While speaking with Comicbook.com, Pratt gave fans a few teases on what we can expect from his character in the fast approaching film ‘Infinity War’ and how he interacts with fellow human Tony Stark aka Iron-Man (Robert Downey Jr). Check out the interview below:
“I don’t want to give it away but I think you’re not alone in being excited about that collaboration. I think the minute Guardians 1 came out and people responded to it, inevitably the question was ‘When are they gonna get to meet up with the Avengers?’ and you’re gonna get to see that,”
Another question introduced in the first Guardians film was who is Peter Quill’s father. The MCU took the liberty of changing Star-Lord’s comicbook lineage to being Ego The Living Planet in the film, played by Kurt Russell. Here’s what Pratt had to say about that dynamic:
“That was really important to him and a burning question his whole life and we get explore that in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. We’re talking about him and his quest to understand the realities of his biological father and the lessons that come with that.”
Pratt went on to explain what a third installment of a Guardians movie could look like and what stories could be explored:
“It’s cosmic. We’re expanding. I’m curious to see what his history with the ravagers was. Cosmic karma could be coming his way for being a little rapscallion for all these years. I like the idea of him becoming a father figure to little Groot. I like the idea of further exploring the dynamic between he and Gamora and trying to keep the Guardians out of trouble. I love him helping to explore the origins of the other characters and getting deeper into the other characters. It’s kind of endless. I hope we get to tell all of those stories”
We hope so too, Chris. We hope so too!
