With his next movie, The Magnificent Seven heading into theatres, Chris Pratt sat down with The Toronto Sun and talked all things Guardians of the Galaxy. It seems not all sequels fall under the weight of the predecessors, as Pratt claims Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol.2 will be the biggest spectacle movie of all time.
“I can say Guardians 2 is going to be out May 5. It’s finished and it’s going to be terrific. I’m already so proud of it. We worked really hard on it and it’s a joy to be part of. It’s a fabulous script. I think it’s going to be, I’m not using hyperbole, here I think it’s going to be the biggest spectacle movie of all time.”
“I’m fortunate. I’m fortunate in so many ways. I couldn’t count the ways, even if I tried. To be part of Guardians of the Galaxy,” he continued, “is to be part of a franchise that really is so totally different. It’s new and exciting and unlike anything people had seen before. There are a lot of superheroes out there, but I think we do something a little different. The genesis of these characters was in the Marvel Universe but we do something a little different, more cosmic, with Guardians of the Galaxy.”
That’s big praise, even from the movies star, but will James Gunn’s movie deliver? Marvel recently struck gold with Captain America: Civil War, but from what Pratt is saying the next outer space adventure might be the best yet.
Guardian’s of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set for release on May 5th, 2017. Will it be Marvel’s best movie yet? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
