James Gunn Teases Role For Chris Pratt In New DC Universe

James Gunn has officially made his transition to the DC Universe from the MCU. However, he may not be alone, with the director teasing Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt may come along for the ride.

It’s no secret that James Gunn, like any director, plays favorites when working on films. Actors like Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker appear in almost every film he’s done, and multiple Guardians of the Galaxy actors like Sean Gunn and Maria Bakalova have already made the jump from the MCU to the DC Universe, leading many to suspect others may be on their way. When asked if Gunn would consider putting Pom Klementieff or Chris Pratt in Peacemaker as themselves, the director revealed he has reasons they wouldn’t:

There are reasons I wouldn’t want either of those actors to play themselves in the DCU!

Pom Klementieff has previously confirmed that she’s had discussion with James Gunn to play a specific character in the DC Universe, making it no surprise she’s up for a role. Chris Pratt has also stated that he’s open to following Gunn wherever he goes. While the Guardians of the Galaxy may be over, it certainly seems their actors will find new life (and new work) at DC Studios.

Live-action Jak and Daxter film reportedly casting Chris Pratt and Tom Holland

We can barely move for video game adaptations these days, and while the likes of The Super Mario Bros. Movie and HBO’s The Last of Us have been commercial and critical giants, there are worries that we’re making these projects just for the sake of it. Like Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, could Jak and Daxter be the next adaptation?

First released in 2001, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was a PlayStation platformer that hoped to follow in the footsteps of Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot. The IP has changed hands plenty over the years, and while we’ve not had a new game since 2009, there’s still a loyal legion of fans.

With more video game movies by the day, MyTimeToShineHello reports that Jak and Daxter is the next to get the silver screen treatment. The account previously leaked full scripts for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, meaning it’s a pretty trusted source.

According to the account, Marvel Cinematic Universe favourites Chris Pratt and Tom Holland are in the running to play Jak and Daxter. Venom’s Ruben Fleischer is apparently going to direct, which would reunite him with Holland after the pair worked on Sony’s Uncharted movie.

In something of a role reversal, the younger Holland is tipped to play the elf-like Jak, while Pratt will voice the comedic Daxter. The stars have previously worked together on Avengers: Infinity War and Pixar’s Onward. It’s definitely an unusual casting, and comes after Holland himself said he was interested in the idea.

‘Legendary Star-Lord’: James Gunn Teases The Possibility Of Chris Pratt Getting His Own ‘Guardians’ Spinoff

While the ending of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” put a bow on a lot of the dangling storylines developed by filmmaker James Gunn, it did also tee up what is to come. Obviously, the ending set up a new Guardians team lineup and the possibility of more films with the characters, but there was also a scene that seemed to set up a potential spinoff project with Chris Pratt returning as Star-Lord. And it appears that wasn’t just a random scene, but according to Gunn, this was actually setting up a spinoff. 

In the newly released commentary track for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” (via The Direct), James Gunn talked about the ending of his film. As mentioned, storylines were ended and others were teased, but the very, very end of the film finished with a title card that said, “The Legendary Star-Lord will return…” While it didn’t mean much at the time—obviously Pratt’s time in the MCU isn’t completely done because he’s not dead and has never publicly said he was stepping away like Dave Bautista—we didn’t know what exactly that tease was setting up. In Gunn’s mind, it’s meant to set the stage for a potential solo film starring Pratt as Star-Lord, but this time, he wouldn’t be fighting in outer space.

“We always want to give somebody a little something special,” said Gunn. “And Chris and I, forever, have talked about how great it would be to be able to do a ‘Legendary Star-Lord‘ movie, a story with Star-Lord on Earth trying to adapt to the environment of Earth in the same way that somebody else might try to adapt to the alien environment of outer space. He’s a fish out of water in just kind of regular water. So I can’t wait to see it.”

Judging by Gunn’s words, it sounds as if “Legendary Star-Lord” is a film that is already in development over at Marvel Studios. Of course, nothing has been announced and that very well might be the case. However, just because James Gunn said it in a commentary track doesn’t necessarily mean we should all mark our calendars and save the date for a Star-Lord solo film. Honestly, of all the stories set up in ‘Guardians 3,’ the one that is the least interesting (at least in this writer’s opinion) is watching Chris Pratt as Star-Lord figure out modern-day Earth. That just seems… dumb. Maybe that’s enough to carry a one-hour special or the B-plot of another film, but as its own big-budget, feature-length experience? Nah, I’m good. 

That said, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is a massive hit, financially and critically, for Marvel Studios, a company looking for massive hits right now. So, it wouldn’t be a shock to see the studio quickly get a Chris Pratt-led ‘Guardians’ spinoff in the works sooner rather than later.
