Chris Pratt Hints at Roles in Both Marvel and DC Universes

Chris Pratt, the star of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, has expressed interest in playing roles in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the DC Universe (DCU). In a recent interview with ComicBook, Pratt hinted at the possibility of reprising his role as Star-Lord in the MCU while also exploring opportunities in the DCU, particularly with James Gunn, who has shifted to DC Studios as co-CEO.

When asked about his chances of playing Star-Lord again and appearing in Gunn's DCU project, Pratt stated, "Well, it probably makes 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."

Pratt's return as Star-Lord is not officially confirmed, but his statement suggests he is open to the idea. The post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 teased "The Legendary Star-Lord will return," fueling speculation about his future in the MCU. The storyline could go in various directions, with The Legendary Star-Lord potentially becoming a natural movie or TV show for Pratt to appear in next, although the project's release date is uncertain due to the MCU's current schedule.

On the DC side, Pratt's comments have sparked discussions about potential roles he could take on. One popular fan theory suggests he could portray Booster Gold, a time-traveling hero set to have his own series on Max. In a 2023 Rolling Stone interview, Pratt addressed this possibility, saying, "If James thought I was right for it, then you know that I would have to consider it."

Pratt's interest in joining the DCU comes as no surprise, given his close working relationship with James Gunn. Gunn has already announced plans to cast some of his Guardians of the Galaxy collaborators in DCU projects, including Sean Gunn, Nathan Fillion, and Pom Klementieff. With Gunn now co-leading DC Studios, the likelihood of Pratt taking on a DCU role has increased significantly.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Universe continue to expand, the possibility of actors like Chris Pratt playing roles in both franchises becomes more plausible. Pratt's openness to exploring opportunities in both universes reflects a growing trend in the industry, where studios are becoming more willing to share characters and actors. Whether Pratt will ultimately balance roles in both the MCU and DCU remains to be seen, but his recent comments have certainly piqued the interest of fans and industry insiders alike.
