Though we’ve known about it for a while, Infinity War will feature the Guardians of the Galaxy meeting the Avengers for one big, colossal, two-part film. However, what has not been made clear is how big a part the GOTG will have in the film. On one hand, they know about Thanos, and the Avengers don’t (yet), and some of the GOTG have big beefs with Thanos, so that’ll no doubt play a part in the film. But where will they stand in the grand scheme of things?
Well, Chris Pratt, aka Star-Lord, appears to have revealed the answer. Talking with the Nerdist, Pratt states that Infinity War is an Avengers film. Meaning that they are the focus, and though the GOTG will be in it, it’s in more of a supporting role:
“We definitely will have a strong presence, but we are playing supporting cast – you know what I mean? We’re there to help them tell an awesome Infinity War story. But Guardians is cosmic. It is its own special off-shoot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
This makes sense in a lot of ways, as the Avengers don’t come together that often, while the Guardians of the Galaxy are together all the time. So while it’s still going to be cool to see them working together, it should be understandable that it may not be the focus of the films.
Infinity War arrives May 4th 2018.
