Yet fan calls for the so-called “Worst Chris” to be replaced in Hollywood resurfaced after the release of the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer earlier this month. In the video, Thor is joined in several scenes by Star-Lord, who is openly bisexual in the comics, and the rest of the Guardians.
It’s not just Gunn who has Pratt’s back – in 2020 his fellow Avengers have rallied around him as well.
“Y’all, @prattprattpratt is as tough a man as there is,” Marc Ruffalo tweeted. “I know him personally, and instead of slandering, look at how he lives his life. He’s just not overtly political as a rule.”
Much like Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr.. “What a world,” he remarked in a lengthy Instagram post from 2020. “The ‘sinless’ throw rocks at my brother Chris Pratt.”
Describing Chris as “A true Christian who lives by principle”, RDJ continued, “If you disagree with Chris, I have a new idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit down with your OWN character flaws, work on THEM, so celebrate your humanity.”
