When news broke that Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence were cast as co-leads in Passengers, fans immediately began making jokes about their superhero pasts. Of course, Pratt launched to international stardom after playing Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy while Jennifer Lawrence dipped her toes into the world of comic book adaptations with X-Men. The actress played a younger version of Mystique, a blue-skinned mutant who can make herself look like anyone in the world. Now, both actors are pitting their respective roles against one another, and it seems like Mystique has an upper-hand over Star-Lord.
In an interview with Collider, Pratt and Lawrence were asked which of their characters would win in a fight with one another. After thinking for a moment, here’s what Pratt had to say: “Um, it depends. Like, is it a straight one-on-one fight? Are there fair rules? Is it my team versus her team? Does Rocket get to help me and catch her in a trap?”
However, Lawrence was quick to set the rules straight. The game could be dirty as needed, and it would be a strict one-on-one endeavor. With that in mind, Pratt then admitted he would probably lose out to Mystique.
“I think probably Mystique because you’d probably be able to trick me, you know what I mean? You’d be able to appeal to my attraction to the femalion,” he said, referring to Star-Lord’s amorous ways. “You’d be able to use my weakness against me.”
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
