People on Twitter are now calling for Jack Black to replace Chris Pratt not just as Star Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but all of Pratt’s films. This is something that I am not 100% OK with, but some of peoples’ tweets on this subject are quite funny.
There have been plenty of people online trying to cancel Chris Pratt over the last few months. It seems to have to do mostly with the fact that he’s connected to a church with a rather shady record when it comes to accepting members of the LGBTQ+ community into their parish.
That said, that doesn’t mean that Chris Pratt shares those views, and he did issue a statement about it. With that said, people on Twitter are now taking another route. They are now suggesting that Jack Black should replace Chris Pratt in his movies.

Jack Black could replace Chris Pratt in anything that clown has ever been in.

Jack Black could do Guardians of the Galaxy but Chris Pratt couldn’t do The Holiday.

Can we go back, edit his face in, and pretend it was him all along?!

When I first saw the trailer for Onward I thought it was Jack Black.
It really should have been Jack Black.

I do love Jack Black. I think he’s a terrific actor and deserves more love than he gets. I think he was brilliant in films such as School Of Rock, High Fidelity, Tropic Thunder, Kung Fu Panda, The Holiday and I even loved him in Nacho Libre.
I think he’s a great talent, however, I’m going to be honest, I don’t think he could really play Star Lord. That said, I would not be against seeing him be brought into the MCU movies. However, he did say that he wanted to retire from acting a while ago. He insinuated that he might make the next Jumanji movie his last, which would be such a shame.
