Chris Pratt has confirmed that he will reprise his role of Peter Quill aka Star Lord for Thor: Love and Thunder. He has spent the last few weeks filming on location in Australia along with his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy cast.
The Guardians appearance in the movie comes as no surprise as we last saw Thor aboard a ship with the team at the end of Avengers: Endgame. While we have recently seen images of most of the cast on set we are now getting reports that Karen Gillan (Nebula) and Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer) among others have finished up filming. Add to this the report that Matt Damon arrived in Sydney along with Chris Hemsworth and we can assume that the role of the team is small.
Personally, I love the Guardians but I think keeping their role in this movie small is a good thing. With the story looking at tackling Jane Foster taking on the mantle of Mighty Thor and the huge villain in Gorr the God Butcher will be played by Christian Bale, then keeping the team may just dampen down those other elements.
I suppose though we will have to wait until Thor: Love and Thunder hit’s theatres next year to find out the full extent of the team’s involvement.
