Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still just a couple of weeks away from being released in theaters worldwide. Still, it's never too soon to start looking ahead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With the arrival of Vol. 2 will inevitably come questions of what is next for the Guardians of the Galaxy as they end up on a path to Earth for Avengers: Infinity War. The Guardians have encountered all sorts of creatures throughout their cosmic adventures in two films but Peter Quill is the only human of Terra many of them have dealt with, at least while we've been watching.
When that changes, it will be alongside an interesting sample of humans: the Avengers. Personalities like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, and Nick Fury will serve as the welcoming committee for a Peter Quill who hasn't visited the planet since the loss of his mother. Of those names, the idea of Stark and Quill's dialogue is one which gets all Marvel fans excited.
Speaking to ComicBook.com at a press event for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Star-Lord actor Chris Pratt shared the excitement.
"I don't want give it away but I think that you're not alone in being excited about that collaboration," Pratt said. "I think the minute Guardians 1 came out and people responded to it, inevitably the question was, 'When are they gonna get to meet up with the Avengers?' and you're gonna get to see that."
The other lingering question following the first Guardians films was, "Who is Peter Quill's father?" As fans now know, the Marvel Cinematic Universe took the liberty of altering the character's comic book counterpart's genetics and make him the son of Ego the Living Planet. With the question being answered both for fans and Quill in the sequel, the character will be able to set his sights elsewhere.
"That was really important to him and a burning questions his whole life and we get to explore that in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," Pratt said. "We're talking about him and his quest to understand the realities of his biological father and the lessons that come with that."
The future, which includes both of the Infinity War movies and the recently announced Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, "could be anything" according to Pratt.
"It's cosmic. We're expanding," Pratt said. "I'm curious to see what his history with the Ravagers was. Cosmic karma could be coming his way for being a little rapscallion for all these years. I like the idea of his becoming a father figure to little Groot. I like the idea of further exploring the dynamic between he and Gamora and trying to keep the Guardians out of trouble. I love him helping to explore the origins of the other characters and getting deeper into the other characters. It's really kind of endless. I hope we get to tell all of those stories."
