'A Story with Star-Lord on Earth': Chris Pratt's Marvel return unveiled by James Gunn
Star Lord's imminent return, following the retirement of Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana from their respective roles as Drax the Destroyer and Gamora, has stoked the fire of anticipation among fans.
As reported by Inside the Magic, James Gunn's final touch on the Marvel Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may have wrapped up, but it's opened up a new cosmos of excitement for Chris Pratt's Star-Lord return. The franchise's popular post-credits scene dropped the bombshell with the line: “The Legendary Star-Lord Will Return.”
Pratt's Fan-Favorite Stardom
It's no surprise that Chris Pratt, a charismatic favorite among the *Guardians of the Galaxy* fans, was selected to return to his popular role of Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord. His imminent return, following the retirement of Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana from their respective roles as Drax the Destroyer and Gamora, has stoked the fire of anticipation among fans.
Contrary to initial speculation, Pratt's return won't be alongside the Avengers in *The Kang Dynasty* and *Secret Wars* films. Instead, a twist in the space-time continuum reveals a different pathway. James Gunn himself has spilled the cosmic beans on the space outlaw's much-anticipated return.
Gunn's Spin on Star-Lord's Return
Though at the helm of DC now, Gunn remains a potential consultant for Marvel, particularly concerning the *Guardians of the Galaxy* characters he masterfully brought to life on the big screen. He expressed a desire to guide future projects involving Chris Pratt, taking a shot at a creatively twisted storyline.
During the commentary for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Gunn and Pratt introduced the concept of a potential Legendary Star-Lord movie. “Chris and I, forever, have talked about how great it would be to do a Legendary Star-Lord movie," Gunn hinted. This sequel presents Star-Lord, "a fish out of water", trying to acclimate to the Earthly environment, providing a hilarious contrast to his alien space adventures.
Star-Lord Back to Earth: A Comical Comeback
The prospect of Peter Quill reacclimating to life on Earth, especially in modern times, promises a comedic goldmine. Dealing with potential misunderstandings stemming from his outdated 1980s pop-culture references like Footloose, and fumbling with Earth technology will surely result in a barrel of laughs. Moreover, Gunn's statement, “I can’t wait to see it”, indicates that Pratt's return in the MCU is no mere rumor, but an upcoming cinematic reality.
Taking into account James Gunn's creative involvement and Pratt's charismatic Star-Lord, fans can eagerly await the release of the Legendary Star-Lord movie, which is expected to debut before Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
There's no denying that Chris Pratt’s return, especially under the aegis of James Gunn, has us all marking our calendars and holding our breaths for this Marvel masterpiece.
