The interesting MCU dynamic of Star-Lord and Thor

Pratt’s latest praise of Hemsworth echoes the sentiment of his former co-stars, and that consistency further reinforces that the MCU veteran is a solid teammate behind the scenes.

Although there are signs that the Guardians will likely play a limited role in Thor: Love and Thunderit’s reasonable to assume that the upcoming sequel will spend a lot of time explaining how Thor’s friendship with the rest of the Guardians evolved, especially with their leader Peter Quill.

During Avengers: Infinity War, Star-Lord and Chris Pratt’s Thor seemed not to get along. However, it seems that this partnership has since changed, with the two respecting each other as the love and thunder Turn around.

While the brief exchange between Thor and Star-Lord at the end of the trailer could imply that the former has feelings for the latter, it’s safe to say that it’s just Thor toying with the leader of the Guardians before their eventual separation (or he spent too much time with the too literal Drax the Destroyer).

Fans can see more Guardians of the Galaxy teaming up with the God of Thunder when Thor: Love and Thunder premieres in theaters July 8.
