Its been a little over a month since the release of Marvel Studios Avengers: Infinity War and there are some who still blame Star-Lord for Thanos winning. While many believed Star-Lord reacted in an understandable manner to the death of his Gamora there are others who felt it was uncalled for. Well now Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt, has weighed in on Star-Lord’s actions.
Chris Pratt has officially defended the actions of his superhero alter ego. During an interview with RadioTimes.com Pratt has this to say on how his character reacted,
“Look – the guy watched his mother die, he watched as his father-figure died in his arms, he was forced to kill his own biological father. And now has suffered the loss of the love of his life.
“So I think he reacted in a way that’s very human, and I think the humanity of the Guardians of the Galaxy is what sets them apart from other superheroes. I think if we did it a hundred times I wouldn’t change a thing.
“I guess you could have the movie end a half hour earlier if you wanted, but it seemed like people really liked this.
“And also, I blame Thanos, OK? Jeez, how come he’s not getting any blame?
“Clearly I’m very sensitive about this,” he laughed.
Pratt like many others understands that this was a very natural reaction to learning the love of his life was taken from him. But his actions still left us with many questions as we have to wait a year to see what has become of Earth’s mightiest heroes in Avengers 4.
Avengers 4 will release in theaters on May 3, 2019.
A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.
