As anyone who’s closely followed Avengers: Endgame news knows, most, if not all, of the Marvel Cinematic Universe characters seen being dusted at the end of Avengers: Infinity War will be seen in some form or fashion during Avengers: Endgame. Some of said characters are already confirmed to be returning to the land of the living, whereas with others, like Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord, their involvement is still shrouded in secrecy. Still, Pratt is privy to all sorts of juicy details about Endgame, and he assures fans that it will be everything they’re hoping for and more. As he put it:
Marvel is notoriously strict on making sure its actors don’t drop spoilers to the public, though there are instances where things still manage to slip through the cracks (I’m looking at you, Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo). Nevertheless, Chris Pratt understandably and wisely kept quiet about Avengers: Endgame specifics during his appearance on Good Morning America, but he outright stated that the Phase 3 capper won’t fail to deliver on what Avengers: Infinity War set up and will deliver even more goodies during its runtime. With a movie this big, that’s good to hear, and we’re only several months away from learning if Pratt’s assurances are correct.
While each MCU movie has been action-packed and full of its own surprises, Avengers: Infinity War is thus far the most momentous and impactful movie of this franchise. Six years after he smirked at the camera in The Avengers, Thanos finally stepped into the spotlight and successfully gathered all six Infinity Stones, allowing him to finally achieve his dream of bringing forth true “balance." With the snap of his fingers, the Mad Titan wiped out half of all life in the universe, and the survivors could only sit/stand in shock as those around them turned to dust. Star-Lord, a.k.a. Peter Quill, was among those who disappeared, uttering a simple “Oh, man” before fading away after his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy, Mantis and Drax.
As for Avengers: Endgame, even with one trailer and a TV spot to chew on, there are very few official details we know about the movie. People are coping with the changed status quo, and the Avengers, alongside heroes like Rocket Raccoon, Ant-Man and Captain Marvel, will somehow initiate a plan they believe will fix everything. Unofficially, there’s been no shortage of speculation about how Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will undo Thanos’ genocide, with time travel and the Quantum Realm being among the most popular guesses. If you thought the Avengers: Infinity War marketing was secretive, Endgame is taking it to a whole new level.
We can’t say for certain yet if Star-Lord will be brought back to life during Avengers: Endgame, although since Chris Pratt recently said that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still happening with “everyone on board,” that’s a good bet that we’ll see him again adventuring across the galaxy. However Endgame unfolds, it will definitely be the end of an era, with some heroes possibly exiting the MCU for good and other heroes taking over as the main representatives of the franchise. So needless to say there’s a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding Endgame, but if we’re to believe what Pratt has said, we needn’t worry about getting great payoff.
