Chris Pratt has been part of the MCU for a long time. He entered the franchise as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, and instantly became a fan favorite with his Guardians of the Galaxy film series. On 5 May 2023, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was released on the big screen. It marked the end of the James Gunn-helmed franchise. However, a surprising post-credits in the last film confirmed the return of Pratt’s Star-Lord.

Guardians 3 has grossed nearly $840 million worldwide and is now available to purchase digitally online. Gunn’s final MCU film is discussed in a director’s commentary that is available alongside the full-length movie. The director in the report shed light on the story plans for a 44-year-old-led Legendary Star-Lord movie.

At the end of Guardians 3, fans saw, “The Legendary Star-Lord Will Return” on their screens. It confirmed that the actor was not yet done with the MCU.

Gunn revealed the film’s premises stating that it will revolve around Star-Lord on Earth trying to adapt to its environment. He said,

“Oh, but not quite over. We always want to give somebody a little something special. And Chris and I, forever, have talked about how great it would be to be able to do a ‘Legendary Star-Lord’ movie.”

Talking about the film’s plot, the DCU head added,

“A story with Star-Lord on Earth trying to adapt to the environment of Earth in the same way that somebody else might try to adapt to the alien environment of outer space. He’s a fish out of water in just kind of regular water. So I can’t wait to see it.”

A Chris Pratt solo film is an intriguing concept that might excite fans. There is a possibility that Gunn might not be writing and directing the film, as the new executive has his hands tied trying to get a new DC cinematic universe.
