One of the cool things about being a superhero in the movies is that your child gets to say things like "Star-Lord is my dad!" Sometimes though things don't' work out as planned, and such is the case with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actor Chris Pratt.
The actor spoke to Bollywood Helpline about his son Jack, who unfortunately has taken a liking to another hero in the Marvel universe. "He knows the first part of the film. I don't know if he thinks it is cool but he has seen the movies that I am in. He knows that I am Star-Lord. But as a matter of fact when I ask him 'who is your favorite superhero Star-Lord', he says 'no Spider-Man'. He just likes Spider-Man better."
Pratt chalks it up to Jack not realizing why Star-Lord is so cool. "I don't know if he fully understands what makes Star-Lord great because Star-Lord doesn't really have any superpowers. Star-Lord can't fly or shoot webs out of his hand...I think he (Pratt's son) is more into super powers."
Hopefully, after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Jack will come around, but at least he kept it in the Marvel family right?
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.
