Can we really see another MCU alum make the jump to the DC Universe? James Gunn hinted that Chris Pratt may join his new DCU in the future.
In a recent interview with Empire, Gunn stated the Guardians cast are “like [his] family” and that he expects to work with them again “probably at [his] other job” as DC Studios CEO. This has led to speculation that Pratt, who played the lead role of Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, may make the jump from Marvel to DC.
Pratt’s involvement in the DCU would be a great move for both the actor and the franchise. After finishing his run with the Guardians of the Galaxy, he will be free to take on other roles and commitments. Joining the DCU would be a natural progression for the actor, as he has already established himself as a leading man in the superhero genre.
Additionally, Pratt’s involvement in the DCU would bring a fresh perspective to the franchise. The actor has a unique blend of charm and humor that would bring a new dynamic to the DCU, and his inclusion would add a sense of continuity to the franchise.
While it remains to be seen if Pratt will join the DCU, it’s clear that the actor has a strong relationship with James Gunn, and it would not be surprising if he joins the franchise in some capacity. With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 set to be released in May, fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Pratt and the DCU.
There are a few characters in the pages of DC Comics that Chris Pratt would be great as.
