Chris Pratt comments on the workout photo of Thor 4 co-star Chris Hemsworth and jokingly asks him to tone it down so he doesn’t make Pratt look bad.
Thor: love and thunder Star Chris Hemsworth posted an intense workout image to Instagram earlier this week, and now his co-star Chris Pratt has responded by asking Hemsworth to score again. Pratt plays Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in the MCU. Star-Lord has been confirmed to appear in Thor 4, though it’s unclear how big his role will be. The last time we saw Thor and Star-Lord on screen in Avengers: Endgame, they were aboard the Benatar spaceship, arguing over who would pilot the vehicle.
Not much is known about the plot of Thor: Love and Thunder yet, but if it picks up shortly after the events of Endgame, it makes sense that Thor and Star-Lord are together. But one exciting thing we know for sure is that Natalie Portman will return to the franchise as Dr. Jane Foster, eventually wielding Mjölnir when she becomes Mighty Thor. Portman last appeared in 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, which had a lukewarm reception. It seemed like Portman was done with the MCU after that movie, so the announcement of his return at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 came as a huge surprise. Now, Portman is training for his role in Love and Thunder, and says the workouts have been very exhausting.

Judging from the image Hemsworth posted on Instagram, it looks like his workouts are just as difficult. He didn’t specifically mention in his post that he’s training for Thor 4, but it seems pretty likely given that filming will begin in January 2021. The photo, which shows Hemsworth flipping something he calls an “extra large donut,” but that in It’s actually a giant foam tire that probably weighs between 175 and 220 pounds, it’s definitely intimidating, even for its co-star Pratt. Pratt commented on the image, writing:
“Hello Friend. I just heard from my coach and he needs you to stop working out as we will be in the same movie and all he doesn’t want me to be by your side if you look like this so I’m going to need you to gain 25 pounds really fast thanks “.
The ironic answer is in keeping with the image of Pratt as a previously plump guy who was duped by his role in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pratt lost more than 70 pounds for the role, but that didn’t stop Rocket (Bradley Cooper) from calling Quill “a fat sandwich” in Avengers: Infinity War. During that scene, Drax (Dave Bautista) and Rocket compare Quill’s physique to Thor’s, telling Quill that Thor is much more muscular than him. Apparently that wound has yet to heal, and Pratt is jokingly concerned about another comparison in Thor 4.
It’s a fun exchange between the two actors, but it brings to light a problem that many people pointed out when Infinity War was first released: In the movie, Quill is clearly in great shape and doesn’t deserve the teasing of Drax and Rocket. Along with Endgame making a joke about Thor’s weight gain, the MCU doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to body positivity. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, at least at one point, had a different take on things; In 2014, Gunn said: “I liked [Pratt’s] so much performance that even if he stayed chubby he knew we would have to go with him; it would just have to be a new version of a superhero who was a little bigger… because his characterization was great. ” That kind of acceptance is a refreshing change of pace, especially for a superhero movie. Pratt’s self-deprecating comment is an easy joke to make but hopefully Thor: love and thunder You will maintain that sense of humor without putting anyone down.
