James Gunn Plans To Make A Solo Star-Lord Movie


It seems as though James Gunn still has plans to play in the MCU sandbox in the not-so-distant future! In a universe full of superheroes, one stands out for his charm, wit, and killer dance moves. Yes, we’re talking about Peter Quill, better known as Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) have been treated to three Guardians of the Galaxy movies, with Star-Lord at the helm of the ragtag group of cosmic heroes. Now, it seems that the charismatic space rogue is set to take centre stage in his own solo film.

This exciting news comes straight from the horse’s mouth, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn confirming plans for a solo Star-Lord movie (via ComicBookMovie.com). The announcement has sent fans into a frenzy, with many eager to see how Star-Lord will fare without his fellow Guardians by his side.

The end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 teased fans with a title card promising that:

The Legendary Star-Lord will Return.

This left many speculating about the future of the character and whether he would be getting his own solo film. Now, it seems that these speculations were spot on, with Gunn confirming that a solo Star-Lord project is indeed in the works.

On the commentary for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3‘s Digital release, the writer/director addressed that final “The Legendary Star-Lord Will Return” title card, and it sounds like there are indeed tentative plans in place for a spin-off focusing on Quill’s effort to adapt to life back on Terra. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:

Oh, but not quite over. We always want to give somebody a little something special. And Chris and I, forever, have talked about how great it would be to be able to do a ‘Legendary Star-Lord’ movie, a story with Star-Lord on Earth trying to adapt to the environment of Earth in the same way that somebody else might try to adapt to the alien environment of outer space. He’s a fish out of water in just kind of regular water. So I can’t wait to see it.

Details about the solo Star-Lord movie are still under wraps, but if the Guardians of the Galaxy films are anything to go by, we can expect a thrilling cosmic adventure filled with humour, heart, and a killer soundtrack.

Star-Lord’s character has been defined by his love for 80s pop culture, his roguish charm, and his complex relationship with his fellow Guardians. It will be interesting to see how these elements are explored in a solo film.
