Okay, so not everybody hates Star-Lord for his rash actions in Avengers: Infinity War. Some hate Thor, too, because he didn’t aim for the head. But that’s another story. Chris Pratt is fully aware of what many in fandom think about Star-Lord’s decision to punch Thanos, thus ruining the chance for Iron Man and Spider-Man to take the Infinity Gauntlet from the Mad Titan. And while that moment has come and gone, Pratt is getting some support from his Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom co-star, Bryce Dallas Howard.
Recently, Bryce Dallas Howard sat down with Comicbook.com to discuss Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but towards the end of the interview, the interviewer reminded Howard that, as a comic book website, they discuss all things comic book. Go figure. So naturally, the subject of Star-Lord’s actions came up, but Howard was quick to point out that hey, Thanos is the one who snapped half of humanity out of existence in Avengers: Infinity War:
“He’s the most human character. He’s half human and that spoke to his humanity in that moment. I think it is important that everyone realize that it was Thanos who did it. It was Thanos.”
Okay, sure, it was Thanos who ultimately did the bad deed, but Howard is right in that Star-Lord is half-human. And his reaction to Gamora’s death spoke to the human side of him, even if that meant acting irrationally.
