Chris Pratt Explains Why Star-Lord is Different in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’
There are few characters who are as interesting and endearing as Chris Pratts’s iconic, 1980s-obsessed intergalactic bounty hunting space pirate, Star-Lord.
Peter Quill has one of the most interesting backstories in all of the MCU, with the character being abducted into a life of cosmic crime as a boy, his journey with the Ravagers crafted a hero quite unlike any other.
The Guardians of the Galaxy films explored Quill’s desire to be more than just a smuggling thief, as his embrace of the Guardians, and attempts at doing good led to his best attempts at being the hero he was always meant to be.
The man behind that iconic goggled helmet was an overnight sensation thanks to his role as Peter Quill, with his penchant for comedy, and charming charisma made him one of the MCU’s most beloved heroes.
With the character returning in the upcoming Phase Four film, Chris Pratt recently explained why Star-Lord is different in Thor: Love and Thunder.
In an interview with Gizmodo, Pratt talked about the differences between working on the Thor film, he stated, “Well, you know, there’s James Gunn’s Peter Quill and then there’s the Peter Quill that thas existed outside of James Gunn, which is in cameos in The Avengers and now the cameos in Thor.”
Pratt continued, “And so truly the Peter Quill that I do when James is in charge is an extension of him. And the Peter Quill that I do when it’s not him in charge is really kind of me to let loose to do a little bit more than probably he would want me to do, in some way. So I guess the difference would be that. ”
Elaborating further, Pratt added, “James Gunn has a [focus] for Quill that isn’t on for Thor or for Avengers, and so well see how that plays out when it comes out. I mean, we’re obviously dealing with the end of Avengers and where that left the Guardians of the Galaxy with Thor.”
It will be interesting to see if there is a difference in the characters, as Pratt has proven that he is among the most capable performers that the MCU can offer.
