Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

After countless shortlist stories and rumors concerning who would play Star-Lord in Marvelís Guardians of the Galaxy, the search for the lead role is finally over, and fittingly the actor is someone who never appeared on any of the aforementioned lists. Deadline reports that Chris Pratt has been tapped to play Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, a character who was born of a human mother and alien father, and is a master strategist and combat expert who wears an ability-enhancing suit and pilots a psychically-linked ship. As Guardians features a cast of strange and cosmic characters, Quill was an important role to fill because he will likely act as the audienceís introduction to the vast, unfamiliar Guardians world. Hit the jump for more.

There were plenty of actors rumored for the role that made a lot of sense (John Krasinski, Zachary Levi, etc.), and Deadline notes that Marvel made test deals with Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Lee Pace, and Eddie Redmayne, but Chris Pratt actually seems like a perfect fit. His comic timing is excellent as evidenced by his work on NBCís Parks and Recreation, and heís shown his talent on the dramatic side with Moneyball and 2012ís Zero Dark Thirty, for which he also proved that he can beef up for a role if need-be.

Looking back on the previous shortlists and taking Pratt into consideration, itís clear that writer/director James Gunn is planning on injecting a good amount of humor into Guardians of the Galaxy. A rumor surfaced recently that Marvel was looking at possibly tapping Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to do voice work in the film (one of the guardians is a talking raccoon), so Iím interested to see the tone that Gunn settles on for the finished film.

With the role of Star-Lord secure, Gunn and Marvel now look to filling out the rest of the cast, which includes the powerful Drax the Destroyer, a giant tree named Groot, the aforementioned Rocket Raccoon, and the female lead Gamora. The story is also rumored to involve the villain Thanos. Expect to hear more soon as production gears up to begin later this year. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in 3D on August 1, 2014.

Again, I know that I'm in the minority and I'm certainly not telling anyone else to how feel/react to these films. Outside of a few (and I forgot to add Ant-Man, which I really liked the first couple of times I saw it but began to wear on me over multiple viewings), I just can't connect with them.

Maybe it's because I didn't grow up reading the comics or watching the animated series?
I think I would have liked them either way but growing up with the stories definitely has a huge influence on how I feel about all of it.
It's crazy I get chill bumps from these movies.
Especially the whole Infinity gems storyline.

Meh.

I stopped purchasing these films on DVD/Blu Ray after the disaster that was Iron Man 2 and The Avengers but gave in on this film.

Iím just going to wait until these films are on Netflix/the Disney app because outside of Spider-Man Homecoming and the first GotG, I just donít connect with these films.
It has become abundantly clear to me that you and I have very different taste in movies, though at least we agree that GotG was awesome.

I'm sure it would have helped. As long as you go in knowing the tone and aim of the film you can enjoy them. Clearly less than a comix nerd but you can say "Yeah, that was fun."

I thought IM3 was going to be great until the end of the second act. If they had kept the movie about him questioning who and what he is without the suit and cut the is/isn't Mandarin garbage it would have been a 4 star film.

GOTG/Ant man are just Disney family action-comedies taking place in bizarre settings. While GOTG2 was a lot darker than most Disney fare it still is what it is.

Spiderman is basically your YA/Teen hero movie.

IMO Winter Soldier is right up there with some of the better Nolan Batman movies. A better comparison might be "Cap: the Bourne Avenger."

I'm a Thor fan but have to admit none of his solo films hold up other than Ragnarok...
