Chris Pratt Reveals the MCU Character He Wants Star-Lord to Meet Onscreen

Recently, Vin Diesel confirmed once and for all that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, the 2018 film that’s going to be bringing together more Marvel characters than any other film to date. With the Russo Brothers already releasing the first set photo from the film as well, it’s hard not to already get excited thinking about which characters we’d like to see team up or interact onscreen for the first time.

During a recent interview for his new film, The Magnificent Seven, with We Got This Covered as well, Chris Pratt was asked which Marvel character he’d most like to see Star-Lord/Peter Quill meet onscreen, and while he avoided answering with any of the characters that are actually going to be in Infinity War, he did give a character that I think most Marvel fans are dying to see in one of the movies.

“I would like Peter Quill to meet the Punisher. He’s not in the Avengers, but talking Marvel Cinematic Universe, I think it would be cool for Peter Quill, the Punisher was my favorite growing up, so I think it would be cool for me to meet him.”

Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle/The Punisher is arguably one of the best that the comic book genre has seen so far, and while the likelihood of him appearing in one of the films seems low, (especially with his own TV series in the works right now) I don’t think Pratt is the only one who’d like to see him interact with some of the MCU’s biggest players onscreen.

For what it’s worth too, the contrast in tones between Star-Lord and The Punisher as well, could make for a pretty memorable interaction I’d imagine as well, even if it’ll probably never happen.
