Chris Pratt Down with Extending His Marvel Movie Contract
Posted 2017/04/25 0 0
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.
SlashFilm spoke to Pratt about the upcoming sequel, but also asked him about his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he would not confirm when his current contract will end, he makes it clear that Vol. 3 will hardly be his final appearance if he has it his way.
"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."
"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."
Gunn, who is returning to write and direct Guardians Vol. 3, has said that his trilogy will tell one complete story featuring these characters, and the third film marks the ending of this iteration of the Guardians. Meanwhile, Feige has said that “what happens after [Infinity War] will be very different” for the whole interconnected franchise. We still aren’t entirely certain what that means, but considering Guardians Vol. 3 takes place after Infinity War, it’s a good bet that Star-Lord survives the battle with Thanos if Pratt is talking about renewing his contract. Marvel has continued to extend contracts of other Marvel stars, and if Pratt is eager to continue on for another trilogy, a standalone, or future Avengers films, they should be quick to get that deal done.
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.
