It’s official, Marvel has finally cast the lead role of Star-Lord to Chris Pratt in the James Gunn film Guardians of the Galaxy. Pratt stars in NBC’s comedy series Parks and Recreation, and has played interesting characters in films such as Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty.
Despite the many names of actors looking for the part over the last few months, Pratt’s name was never mentioned until now.
Guardians of the Galaxy follows the story of a United States pilot who ends up in space in the midst of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone else is looking for. Star-Lord is the pilot and leader of the space superhero tema in the film.
In the comics is later revealed that the character is the offspring of a human mother and an alien father, hence Star-Lord develops son psychic-like abilities.
