Not everyone gets along. In fact, the entire entertainment industry makes their money on that very idea. Every story thrives on conflict. Look at Lord of the Rings. One of the fun subplots on those films revolved around the competitive nature of Gimli and Legolas — a microcosm of the Dwarf/Elven conflict. Similarly, part of the appeal of the Avengers is seeing Captain America and Tony Stark butt heads.
Well, don’t expect the internal conflict to end anytime soon. While me may not get anything on the scale of Captain America: Civil War any time soon, there will be some friendly internal conflict in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
"We were so cocky," Zoe Saldana said. “Deep down we were like, ‘We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy!’ But it was super exciting -- the fact that they’re bringing every character in the Marvel universe together and that this super villain is such a prominent figure amongst the Guardians of the Galaxy gives our level of importance quite a boost."
Not to mention the fact that the conflict with Thanos is the of galactic sort.
"We're also in space, so we're not being held by gravity," Saldana continued. ”And you know we're stronger."
Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer, embellished on that idea.
"When we come onto set as the Guardians, we are the Guardians. Anybody stepping onto set with us has to deal with all of us. There are usually one or two Avengers. We are the Guardians, we come as that and carry a scene like that and we do business as usual, which is a lot of chemistry, a lot of interaction amongst ourselves. And the Russos were very encouraging of that. I think we’ve established ourselves and we deserve to be right up there with the Avengers. I think we’re just as strong, if not stronger, as a unit, ‘cause we’re a family."
Sounds like they’ve been heeding the words of Vin Diesel as of late.
Of course, Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt also had to give his two cents on this conflict.
"We're the Guardians of the Galaxy -- we don't get intimidated! [Okay] I was a little secretly intimidated. Chris Hemsworth, he’s so tall and handsome -- I had to go home and really look myself in the mirror and say, you know, there’s a possibility that you just might be one of those guys who mostly loves your wife but also kind of loves Chris Hemsworth a little bit too."
Let’s hope some of that conflict is able to make its way onto the big screen. While the Avengers have had their fair share of Earth-saving escapades, we can’t forget that the Guardians work on a much grander level. Egos are sure to clash — the likes of which we haven’t seen since Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel in The Fate of the Furious!
