Chris Pratt Teases Star-Lord Return And Joining James Gunn’s DCU: “I Think It’s 100% Both”

When James Gunn exited Marvel and took over as co-chief of DC Studios, we assumed some of his Guardians of the Galaxy pals would join him. Dave Bautista has practically been telling us for a while that he’ll follow Gunn anywhere, and now it’s Chris Pratt’s turn. But he’s got some unfinished business as Star-Lord to complete first.

In an interview with, Pratt says it’s “100%” that he’ll both return as Star-Lord in a future Marvel movie, and that he’ll join Gunn over at DC Studios.

“Well, it probably makes more sense that I would be Star-Lord again,” Pratt said. “But anything is possible, and especially with James over at DC. Maybe there’s something that would be right over there. Maybe both. How about both? Let’s do both. I think it’s 100% both.”

Okay, he could be teasing here. But there’s probably not going to be much that keeps Pratt away from heading to DC if he wants to. The GOTG movies are finished after last year’s Vol. 3, and we have no idea when we’ll see Star-Lord again. Last we saw of him, he was on Earth dealing with the human side of his family, but we were promised the “Legendary Star-Lord” would return. A miniseries would seem the best way to go, and Gunn even teased it himself, but who knows if Disney is up for that sort of thing right now.
