Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star-Lord is a different superhero than the others that have been seen. Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill was a boy from Earth kidnapped by the Ravagers, who trained him as a bounty hunter. Later, he finds out that he is a hybrid between human and celestial, but for him it is always better to work as a team in the way that is most convenient for him.
The hero was raised on the big screen under the gaze of James Gunn, who has shown to have a particular touch when it comes to superheroes. However, Star-Lord has walked under the command of other directors when he appears alongside other Avengers as he did in Avengers: Infinity War-79%, where his bad decisions sparked controversy among viewers, and Avengers: Endgame-95%.
Before the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the peculiar team will appear again in Thor: Love and Thunder supporting the protagonist. But could it be that the essence of the character changes when another director is in charge of him? At least Chris Pratt sees it that way, and says Gunn’s Quill is never the same as the one in the other movies. During an interview with Gizmodo on the occasion of the next premiere of Jurassic World: Dominion, the actor spoke about it.
”Well, you know, there’s James Gunn’s Peter Quill and then there’s the Peter Quill that has existed outside of James Gunn, who’s in cameos in Avengers and now in Thor. And 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 he’s not in charge is really nice of me to let me do a little bit more than he probably wants me to, in a way. So I guess the difference would be that.”
The star also explained that the director has a particular approach to the character because he is, in a way, an extension of himself. He even asked that special attention be paid to the transition between Engame, Thor: Love and Thunder, and his return to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to understand the development of it as Gunn watched. The interpreter also clarified that this change does not mean that Taika Waititi does not respect the essence of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but neither can he make them look so much in a film where they are not the protagonists.
Despite all this, the also director of The Suicide Squad – 91% commented a couple of weeks ago that he has been involved in some way in the scripts of other films in which his characters appear, at least so that they have some continuity with the stories he narrates in order to avoid a contrast between Waititi’s version – for example – and his own. His intervention only focuses on certain assessments or adjustments that he asks to be made.
We will see the Guardians of the Galaxy again as protagonists until next year in a Christmas special and in their third feature film, which is being filmed at the moment and photographs of the set where the stars wear a uniform have already begun to leak. that stood out in comics a few years ago.
