Chris Pratt is one of the most popular and beloved actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he is the reason why the character of Star-Lord is gaining a lot of hype and popularity in the hearts of fans. But, there is a revelation that the look we are cherishing in all these movies of this character wasn’t the only idea of his appearance in the hands of Marvel Studios.
There was a look, and a costume of Star-Lord by artist Charlie Wen, which was on the edge of becoming the final look of the character but because of some reasons, the look couldn’t become the final one.
Chris Pratt’s inclusion in the world of MCU was done back in 2014 with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy movie and the fans absolutely loved the character of Peter Quill which has been portrayed by Chris Pratt in the movie. The actor gained the popularity among the fans because of this funny and emotional character.
Also, the chemistry he showed with Gamora in the movie was a huge hit. So, we have seen that Chris Pratt is always there with his famous and popular Red-trench coat with a sci-fi helmet which became very popular merchandise among the fans.
But, recently it has been revealed that Chris Pratt was too near to get the look similar and very much exact to the one we all have seen in the comic books. The look was created by none other than Charlie Wen, who was the head of Marvel Studios’ Visual Department and produced a costume look of the character very close to the one we have saw in the comic books.
The design Charlie Wen has produced is down below and you can see by yourself that whether this is the right one or the one we have right now is better than this. In this, we can see that Quill’s coat is in more of a military version and also has an Ultron-Esque helmet with it and if we talk about the arrival of this look in the comics, then we can say that this look made its appearance back in Marvel Preview #4 in 1976’s.
Charlie Wen captioned the photo with this caption:
#guardiansofthegalaxy —What StarLord almost looked like!! I created this to give us @MarvelStudios a version closer to his comicbook origins. * * * * #marvel #marvelstudios #mcu #avengers4 #starlord #costumedesign #characterdesign #comicbookmovie @prattprattpratt @JamesGunn
The concept art looks cool but it’s hard to admit that the current look which we have of Star Lord is not better than this because the current look is also very cool and does a lot of justice with the character and role of him in the movie. This concept art on the other side, delivers a very different approach towards the character and we feel more dark and alien kind of person in this one.
Chris Pratt also defended the actions of Star-Lord in the movie by saying in an interview,
“Look – the guy watched his mother die, he watched as his father-figure died in his arms, he was forced to kill his own biological father. And now has suffered the loss of the love of his life. So I think he reacted in a way that’s very human, and I think the humanity of the Guardians of the Galaxy is what sets them apart from other superheroes. I think if we did it a hundred times I wouldn’t change a thing. I guess you could have the movie end a half hour earlier if you wanted, but it seemed like people really liked this. And also, I blame Thanos, OK? Jeez, how come he’s not getting any blame?”
We all know that Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the very few movies in the long list of MCU which have characters like this from which the makers have to go through a lot of concept arts before reaching to the final one.
As we already have a lot of concept arts of Mantis and Gamora on the internet also. So, it clearly tells us that it’s not easy to choose from one of these. There is also news that Star-Lord is going to make his appearance in the movie Avengers 4 next year.
