Chris Pratt Teases Thor & Star-Lord’s New Dynamic In Love & Thunder

Thor and Star-Lord’s relationship is heading in a new direction in Thor: Love and Thunder, teases Chris Pratt. The next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will kick off with Chris Hemsworth’s titular hero journeying through space with the Guardians of the Galaxy after taking off with them in Avengers: Endgame. After initially choosing to leave the group to find inner peace, Thor is pulled back to the fold when Gorr the God Butcher sets out on his murderous quest to kill all gods in the universe.

Alongside Pratt and Hemsworth, the cast for Thor: Love and Thunder will feature the MCU returns of Taika Waititi, who is also back at the helm with a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast. The film will also mark the MCU debuts of Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, who is being hailed by many cast members as the one of the best MCU villains to date, and Russell Crowe as Zeus. Thor: Love and Thunder is gearing up to hit theaters next week and those behind the film are offering new details of what’s to come from the film.

While speaking with Marvel at the world premiere for the upcoming film, Chris Pratt opened up about what to expect from Thor: Love and Thunder. The actor teased a new dynamic between Star-Lord and Thor in the film, noting the differences between how Taika Waititi and Avengers: Endgame duo the Russo brothers approached the relationship. See what Pratt said below:

“It was a fun thing when we did it with the Russo brothers directing us in Endgame. At the end of that I thought it was a lot of fun and [director Taika Waititi] takes it really in its own direction here in Love and Thunder.”

Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame offered a nice tease of what the dynamic between Thor and Star-Lord would be like heading into Thor: Love and Thunder, with the latter notably intimidated by the former and feeling his leadership threatened. The end of Endgame continued this humorous relationship as Thor joined up with the space-faring group for their cosmic adventures, with the two memorably having an ambiguous conversation of who was the real captain of the Milano. While audiences got plenty of chuckles from these scenes, Pratt’s tease of a new relationship in Thor: Love and Thunder seems to point towards Taika Waititi bringing his unique sense of humor to how the heroes interact with one another.

The trailers for Thor: Love and Thunder have offered some insight for what this new relationship will be between Thor and Star-Lord, indicating Hemsworth’s hero may be taking a backseat captain approach to his time with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Anticipation remains high for the film following early Thor: Love and Thunder reactions teasing a hilarious and exciting new adventure for the cast and praising Bale’s menacing performance as Gorr. The wait for the film is nearly over as Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8.
