Chris Pratt To Reprise MCU Role

Chris Pratt will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Star-Lord in Thor: Love And Thunder alongside Chris Hemsworth.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thor: Love and Thunder is set to shoot in Australia this January, and Pratt will be joining the film’s cast to reprise his role as the morally dubious superhero Peter Quill.

The casting means that fans should get some resolution to the tease that we were left with at the end of Avengers: Endgame. It also opens the door for other members of the Guardians Of The Galaxy to possibly show up as well.

Plot details for Love And Thunder currently remain under wraps. Director Taika Waititi has called it both “insane” and “romantic.” He has also teased the inclusion of space sharks from the Marvel Comics. Christian Bale (The Dark Knight), is on board to play the main villain. Who, precisely, Bale is playing remains unknown.

Thor: Love and Thunder stars Hemsworth in the role of the titular Norse god, with Natalie Portman reprising her role as Jane Foster, and Tessa Thompson returning to play Valkyrie.

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set to hit theaters on February 11th, 2022.
