Sure, Chris Pratt might be considered the ~lesser Chris~ of the Hollywood Chris’, but his Marvel character, Peter Quill a.k.a Star-Lord, is a straight-up legend (I mean, aside from that time in Avengers: Infinity War when he let his emotions get the better of him and ultimately led to half the world being snapped to dust… but let’s not go there, girlfriend).
A brand new Guardians of the Galaxy comic, Guardians of the Galaxy #9, has just been released and it reveals that Peter Quill is, in fact, bisexual, Screen Rant reports.
In the comic, Quill is sent to another universe where he meets the humanoid aliens Aradia and Mors (FYI humanoid aliens are aliens that look like humans, kinda like Gamora). After a year of travelling, Aradia and Mors basically ask Quill to enter a polyamorous relationship with them and he declines ‘cos he’s still in search of his beloved GF, Gamora.
Then there’s a 12 year time-jump where we see that Quill has given up the search for Gamora (fucking ouch) and has instead embraced Aradia and Mors. In one scene, Quill says: “It’s been over a decade. Time to accept the truth… Morinus is my home. You’re my home.”
Mors says, “the you-that-was is over” and that Quill is ready to learn their ways.
As you’ll see from the comic strip below, one of the two aliens getting ~cozy~ with Quill has a male form, while the other appears female, which is why folks reckon he’s bisexual.
Whether or not this will become part of the storyline in the films remains to be seen. So far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has basically used the comic material as a guide when coming up with plotlines. But also, Marvel’s been making a push to include diverse characters in their films so this could be something that’s revealed in future films.
It comes after Pratt defended Hillsong Church back in 2019, which he attends, after The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page accused the church of being “infamously anti-LGBTQ.”
“It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ,’” Pratt wrote on Instagram.
“Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”
Pratt is set to reprise his role as Peter Quill in Thor: Love & Thunder as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+.
