In a recent interview with GQ, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt spoke about his difficulties working with director James Gunn on the set of that film - difficulties he attributes to himself.
“It's a little bit like a Venus flytrap. If you stick your finger in and it closes, it takes like a week to open back up. So he had a hard time working with me because he'd tell me something, or I'd do something, and the next thing you know he couldn't get me back to where I started originally," said Pratt, speaking of his tendency to get inside his own head.
Regarding Pratt, Gunn had this to say, "I think that he had gotten a lot of success over the past few years being the funny sidekick, which means that he always has to juggle to entertain everybody. And the truth is, Chris didn't trust himself to just be Chris Pratt—and how desirable that is to an audience."
Pratt also went on to discuss 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2, saying it was the first of at least two "already planned" sequels to the 2014 blockbuster film. But there is likely even more Star-Lord in Pratt's future than that.
Here's how Pratt himself describes his contractual obligation to the role: "...I'm tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians plus another couple..."
GQ's translation - Pratt is likely committed to at least two sequels, as well as spin-off projects where his character will appear with other Marvel characters.
Can anyone say Avengers: Infinity War?
