Chris Pratt, the famous actor known for being funny in Parks and Recreation and starring in big movies like Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, has a surprising idea about what he’ll do next as a superhero.

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is done, fans are curious if Pratt will keep playing Star-Lord in Marvel movies or try something new in DC movies with James Gunn, who directed him before. Gunn, who directs for DC and previously worked on the Guardians movies, has hinted about bringing some Guardians actors over to DC (via Threads).

This has given rise to a popular fan theory among fans, pointing that Pratt could portray Booster Gold, also known as Michael Carter (a time-traveling hero renowned for his showmanship and use of advanced gadgets).

In a recent chat with ComicBook, Chris Pratt surprised everyone by saying he might become a superhero in both the DC and Marvel sagas. He admitted:

“Well, it probably make more sense that I would be Star Lord again. But anything is possible, and especially with James over at DC. Maybe there’s something that would be right over there. Maybe both. How about both? Let’s do both. I think it’s 100% both.”

While a return to the MCU as Star-Lord seems like the safe bet, Pratt’s recent comments indicate he’s open to exploring the DC Universe. James Gunn, the writer-director behind the Guardians of the Galaxy films, now co-leads DC Studios. This means that the Virginia native could also join him in a new superhero franchise.

In a 2023 interview with Rolling Stone, Chris Pratt himself said, “If James thought I was right for it, then you know that I would have to consider it.” So, there are two possibilities here. First, the 44-year-old actor might have already been offered a role or could be discussing it with them. Second, based on what Pratt said, Gunn might seriously think about him for a role in a DC movie.

His potential double duty could be a win-win for both fans and actors. Fans get to see their favorite actors bring beloved characters to life in new and exciting settings. Actors, meanwhile, get a chance to show off their acting chops by taking on new types of superhero roles.
