Do you remember when Star Lord lost his composure only when the Avengers team was defeating Thanos by completely messing up their master plan and catalyzing the destruction of half the universe? Yes, Chris Pratt too. No wonder since he has been heavily criticizing the action of his character for months. But during a recent interview with Radio Times about his upcoming role in Jurassic World Chris Pratt defended his character Avengers: Infinity War arguing that Star Lord Being impulsive The reaction to the news of Gamora's premature death was one that anyone could face if faced with a similar situation. Pratt, who had delved into the essence of his defense logic, said
"Look ̵1; the guy watched his mother die, saw his father figure die in his arms, he was forced to own his own biological father Now I have suffered the loss of the love of his life, I think he has responded in a very humane way, and I think the humanity of the galaxy's guardians sets them apart from other superheroes. "
In some ways, he seems one To have a point. Because simply because Star Lord is a superist human does not mean that he does not experience the normal range of human emotions, just like everyone else. "I think if we did it a hundred times, I would not change anything," said Pratt.
And while Pratt probably has a uniquely nuanced range of insights on the motives of his character, that still seems to be a pretty thing to make weighty statement, given the fierce bouts of upset by fans the star -Lord for Infinity War bleak end accused, in principle since the film first returned to theaters in April.
Suffice it to say that Pratt is aware of the bitterness towards his character that has been suggested by the social media. "People seem to be upset with Star Lord," he told Radio Times. But for the record, he personally blames Thanos (d. H. The Dark Lord) for the whole thing. For those who need to jog a memory: Thanos is the harrowing intergalactic villain who first drummed the intergalactic extinction before continuing to kill Star Lord's love interest, Zoe Saldana's Gamora. If, following this logic, Thanos had not triggered all the pain and devastation, he probably would not have messed things up like him.
"Christ, how is it that he does not get the blame?" Pratt asked during the Radio Times interviews, pointing out the relative lack of hatred that Thanos & # 39; shed after Infinity War . Apart from that, the actor recognized his own bias in this particular area. "Of course I'm very sensitive," he added. But after analyzing some of responses to Pratt's comments on Twitter it sounds like he's not alone in that perspective.
And judging by the reactions of Marvel fans to Twitter, it sounds like Pratt's "humanity" principle is actually one to which a significant number of fans can cling. Not too big a surprise given that Marvel treats many of his superhero characters, who are often as flawless as they are brave.
When a fan pointed out on Twitter part of what made Pratt's character so lovable throughout his various stations within the MCU is his very tangible reality, which sets him apart from many of his superhero counterparts the pop culture. (As Marvel enthusiasts already know, Pratt's Star Lord made his leap from the Guardian of the Galaxy franchise to Avengers with this year's Infinity War )
"This is part of why I loved Guardians unlike other superhero films," wrote the Twitter user and responded to Pratt's comments to Radio Times "They are all very organic characters, believably behaving like a bunch of idiots who have found a family in one another, as opposed to a group of larger-than-life gods who are just always perfect."
A handful of other Marvel fans on Twitter seemed to agree with this point of the user, arguing that although Star Lord's actions were not the most logical, they were certainly the most humane and closely related to those of the character's established personality traits.
Of course, there are still outraged Marvel fans out there staggering after the Infinity War totally stunning finale. And while these fans may realize that perhaps these "very human" elements of Star Lord could have made him make that cosmic mistake on Titan, they still do not like him very much.
So, have all thoughts been about the moral position of Star Lord? Whether you agree with Pratt's defense of his character or not, the points he has made about Star Lord's humanity seem to be pretty harsh. And if the massive reaction in the social media is an indication of this (as well as the general excitement over Star-Lord's Infinity War error), it sounds like this is the main driver here.
Regardless of the bug, Star Lord is obviously a rather complex character – one with enough multi-dimensional strengths and weaknesses that is almost controversial within the Marvel fan base. As far as Pratt's play cutlets are concerned, that in itself sounds like a triumph of rather cosmic proportions.
