Chris Pratt Reveals His Problem With DC Movies

Chris Pratt thinks he knows how to fix the often badly received DC movie machine.

The actor, who will star in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, said in a recent interview with io9 that he believes that DC's main problem is trying to introduce too many characters at once.

"I really like all the Warner Bros. movies," Pratt said, adding that he thinks they're "really cool." But he had a note. "One of the flaws might have been they were introducing too many characters in Suicide Squad. They spent 10 minutes telling us why we should care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters."

Pratt contrasted this with Marvel's The Avengers, noting that the studio "tested it to make sure it worked" by giving many of the characters stand-alone movies beforehand. "They created a thirst for these characters, and that's when they put them in The Avengers."

However, Pratt said that just introducing the characters and building franchises from the ground up is nowhere near as easy as it seems. The actor said that it is "really f***ing hard to do," adding that "it's kind of a miracle" that anyone has been able to accomplish that feat. "I think it comes down to [Marvel Studios head] Kevin [Feige], his filmmakers, and ultimately, me playing Star-Lord," he joked.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is due out on May 5. In the meantime, find out what the critics are saying about it.
