The Guardians of the Galaxy : Chris Pratt refused the role of Star-Lord, he wanted to play another hero

You have to imagine Star-Lord without the face of Chris Pratt ? We also. However, the star of the saga, The Guardians of the Galaxy almost never embody this super-hero like no other.

Discovered by a part of the public in Everwood, and then adopted and loved through the series Parks & Recreation, it is finally to his role as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy Chris Pratt is really became a star around the world, allowing it to be today one of the most bankables of the planet. However, this beautiful path could be totally different.

Chris Pratt could have been another hero in the MCU

Thanks to Disney+, the platform SVOD competitor to Netflix, the public now has access to multiple bonus unreleased on several works, notably those related to the MCU. And Comic Book has been spotted, one of them concerns the fate reserved for Chris Pratt.

In an interview, Sarah Finn – casting director for Marvel Studios, reveals, and having discovered the actor… via his audition for the role of Steve Rogers aka Captain America. Yes, the greatest Marvel heroes could be totally different on the screen. We too are in shock.

Star Lord is shunned by Chris Pratt

Now, if the role was eventually awarded to Chris Evans, Sarah Finn has never forgotten his performance. Also, when the project The Guardians of the Galaxy is born, she immediately thought of him for the main character. What to do for the happiness of the actor ? Not at all : “Chris didn’t want the role, and refused to audition“.

Worse, after finally managed to “convince them to go to a hearing“, it is James Gunn – the film director, who was subsequently put sticks in the wheels : “He didn’t want to see Chris Pratt and it was a real challenge. (…) I insisted, to the point of upset, so that he understands that Chris Pratt was the guy perfect“.

Fortunately, as in all Disney movies, this situation has finally given birth to a happy ending – Chris Pratt and James Gunn became ultra close, and in a few years, we have the right to be The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 at the cinema. Life is beautiful.

And during this time, we still wonder what it would have looked a lot like Cape town in the guise of Pratt.
