Chris Pratt spoke about “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” at the Spike Guys' Choice award show Saturday. He was joined by fellow cast member Zoe Saldana, who apparently had not read the script of the upcoming James Gunn-directed movie.
Gunn recently completed the first draft of his next comedic superhero adventure, but very few people are privy to information about what the movie will be about. Pratt and Saldana were asked about the movie by MTV.
Saldana said she was angry with Gunn for sharing the script only with Pratt and wanted to call the director immediately. Pratt clarified that he hadn’t read the draft yet but had cried when the director explained the pitch of the movie. Saldana wanted to know if her part would be bigger in the next movie.
“Your part is great,” Pratt told Saldana. He explained that both their parts in the movie were “instrumental.” Saldana also asked Pratt if their characters will have “little green babies” in the movie. “You mean in real life or … ?,” the actor responded.
Saldana is expected to reprise her role as the green alien Gamora in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” The actress can be seen wearing a green dress in this video by MTV. Pratt will play Peter Quill. The actor tried to evade answering questions about the movie in another interview with MTV and a video of that interaction has also been posted on YouTube.
“I’m only here so that NFL won’t find me,” was the standard response Pratt gave to questions about whether there would be more dancing in the movie and if it would explore characters like Peter Quill’s father. [Pratt was mimicking pro football star Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks, who repeated that same remark over and over to reporters during a Super Bowl media session earlier this year.]
The actor said that he didn’t want to spoil it for the fans, "just like you wouldn’t want to spoil a Christmas present by revealing what it is beforehand." Pratt later said that “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” was probably going to be the “greatest movie of all time.” The movie is slated to be released in May 2017 and production has yet to begin.
