Chris Pratt Says That Appearing In 'Avengers: Infinity War' Was His Destiny

Seeing Avengers: Infinity War onscreen is something people have been waiting for for quite a while -- including one of the film's many stars.

Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians of the Galaxy member Peter Quill/Star-Lord, recently celebrated the release of the Infinity War trailer on his Instagram account. In the video's caption, he explains that he feels like appearing in the film was his destiny.

When I was twelve I won $300 playing bingo and bought a bunch of comic books. I didnโ€™t know much about comics except I wanted to buy a No. 1, because I knew that it would totally increase in value and one day I would sell it (along with my 86 Topps baseball card full set) for probably hundreds of millions and buy a private island. Anyways, in that stack of comics? โ€œThe Infinity Gauntlet.โ€ It had some scary dude named Thanos on the cover with a sweet sparkly michael jackson glove with all these shiny rubies and shit on it. Little did I know... baseball cards would end up being pretty worthless and same with comics in terms of an investment. If I was to buy an island it would have to be the old fashioned way. (Playing a character that existed in the comics) Anyways... I forgot the point of this post... here is a trailer for a film I did. I swear I had a point. Something about destiny, or bingo. Anyways... join the hundreds of millions of people around the globe who will see this all in anticipation of its May 4th release.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
