Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy series and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, has just revealed that he intends to renew his contract with Marvel as soon as it expires.
In an interview with SlashFilm, Chris Pratt talks about his commitment with Marvel:
SlashFilm: Are you going to be in Captain Marvel?
Chris Pratt: I don’t know.
SF: Do you know how many movies are left on your contract?
SF: Can you tell me?
CP: I’ll tell you, as much as I love Marvel, it doesn’t matter how many I have contracted, because I’m going to continue to work with them.
SF: I was going to ask if you were interested in re-upping when your contract expires.
CP: Totally, dude. I want to – I love working with them. I’m going to continue to work with them whether they like it or not. Even if they write me out, I’m going to show up on set and be like, ‘Hey, man!’ They’re done. They don’t get to shake me.
Given that Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 is stated to be the end of the original iteration of the team, one wonders what the future has in store for Star-Lord. Perhaps he’ll go back to Earth to serve as an Avenger, or maybe he’ll join some other space-faring super-team that Marvel can cook up.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 blasts off on May 5, 2017. The film stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Kurt Russell as Ego, and Sylvester Stallone in a spoiler-filled supporting role.
