We have another update on Vin Diesel courtesy of Vin Diesel, your source for all the latest Vin Diesel news. No, it’s not more Fast 8 drama (#candyassgate was tragically short-lived), but it does involve another major franchise. According to Diesel, Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord won’t be the only Guardian of the Galaxy to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, as the actor claims that the whole team will be joining their occasionally fearless leader for the upcoming MCU event.
Guardians of the Galaxy
If any Marvel movie director had a take on long-awaited crossovers, it’d be Guardians of the Galaxy boss James Gunn. The Vol. 2 director is only now preparing to share his interstellar heroes with The Avengers, but even Gunn doubts we’ll see the other Earth-based TV heroes taking part in the great Infinity War.
We already know that the soon-to-be-retitled Avengers: Infinity War will unite much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, boasting the studio’s largest lineup to date. And while James Gunn has no plans to bring other MCU characters over for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have hinted that Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord will appear in Infinity War — but he might not be the only Guardian to make that jump.
Lots of news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe today as directors Joe and Anthony Russo make the rounds to promote Captain America: Civil War. As you might expect, the Russos are already looking ahead to Avengers: Infinity War, and they just basically confirmed a bit of casting news that’s pretty exciting — especially for all those fans who keep asking James Gunn when we’ll see the Guardians of the Galaxy crossover with the rest of the MCU.
When Chris Pratt was cast as Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord, in Guardians of the Galaxy, he was seen by many as an unconventional pick for a universe-saving superhero. However, Pratt proved that he’s got what it takes to save the world, and now he’s calling on you to step up and make the world a better place, and in return you get a chance to visit the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set!
The MCU has been laying the groundwork for Captain America: Civil War for some time now, but there’s another, bigger war in Marvel’s future — one which will take a bit more preparation, as the two-part Avengers: Infinity War will send Phase 3 out in epic fashion, bringing many of our favorite superheroes together in the ultimate battle. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are currently wrapping things up with Civil War, but they’re already looking ahead to their next big Marvel project, which will unite the MCU…maybe even with the Guardians of the Galaxy in tow.
If Arrow bore an unabashed influence from Batman Begins, and early Flash borrowed a bit from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow isn’t even trying to conceal its Guardians of the Galaxy vibe. Get weird in the ‘70s, as the team brawls to some vintage tunes in the latest Legends trailer of our January premiere.
Chris Pratt is at it again. The actor is not only known for his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, but for often using his fame for a good cause by visiting children’s hospitals. Earlier this year, Pratt donned his Star-Lord costume to visit some special friends, and this time he’s back with a very adorable little friend: Baby Groot.
The director, a regularly active user of social media platforms Twitter and Facebook, took to the web last night to show off one his one-of-a-kind interior decor. Specifically, he posted a couple photos of his coffee table, a custom-made piece designed to look just like the Awesome Mix cassette tape so cherished by Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, in Guardians of the Galaxy.
It might be for the best that this scene never made it into the final cut of Guardians of the Galaxy, since it might have inspired a terrible mash-up t-shirt with a drunk Drax in Joker makeup asking, “You wanna know how I got these scars?” Still, if you were curious about Drax’s tattoos in Guardians, this deleted scene has your answer.
