Chris Pratt doesn’t rule out returning to the MCU as Star Lord without James Gunn

The actor behind Star Lord admits he would reprise the role if the conditions were right.

Guardianes de la Galaxia Volumen 3

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 marks the expected conclusion of James Gunn’s trilogy. Although we know that Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana have left their time with Marvel behind on the big screen, Chris Pratt has admitted that he would play Star Lord again without James Gunn’s direction if the conditions were right.

“It would be strange to continue [Star Lord’s] story without James,” Pratt tells Variety in an interview. “He’s done such a masterful job in the first three films. We really found the voice of Peter Quill together and without him, obviously, I would never have had this opportunity. He writes it, he directs it, he dreams up the music, it’s his imagination on screen. So, to continue to tell the story, it would really be important to honor what he’s done in the first three films and to honor what the fans have grown to love about the character and not simply do it because people might show up to pay for it, you know?”

Pratt assures that he doesn’t want to be “cynical” about a hypothetical new phase, and if he were, he simply “wouldn’t do it. “If something made sense, I would do it, but it would really have to check a lot of the right boxes,” he concludes. As Variety notes, Pratt has already worked behind the mask of Star Lord in films not directed by Gunn, as in the case of the last two installments of Avengers, Endgame and Infinity War, directed by the Russo brothers. On the other hand, he also appeared in Thor: Love and Thunder, this time under the direction of Taika Waititi. Always in a supporting role, but the door is not closed.

The conclusion to Guardians of the Galaxy

Our colleagues in Spain have already seen the movie, which they call “one of the best and most emotional” of the genre in recent years. “It is one of Marvel’s most emotional films and, with the permission of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the best that the brand has signed since the final bow of The Avengers. We have no problem affirming that it closes our favorite trilogy of the MCU. No need for crossovers, metaverses and other complications.”
