DISCLAIMER: Do not read if you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War.
The blame the headline refers to here is that fans are saying Star-Lord was responsible for the sad ending of Avengers: Infinity War, due to his emotional reaction to the news of Gamora’s death. Well, we call this drama people, it’s always good to have characters show real complicated human emotions and I’m sure Star-Lord was not quite thinking clearly at that point. A bit like Tony Stark when he attacked Bucky in Civil War, no?
If you are going to blame someone for a movie ending in a way you didn’t like, I think you have to blame the writers. Saying that, what the hell would anyone have to complain about with the ending of Avengers: Infinity War? It was amazing for a movie to have the guts to do what they did.
Chris Pratt was asked about fans being upset with Star-Lord in an interview with Radio Times and here is what he said,
“Look – the guy watched his mother die, he watched as his father-figure died in his arms, he was forced to kill his own biological father, and now has suffered the loss of the love of his life. So I think he reacted in a way that’s very human, and I think the humanity of the Guardians of the Galaxy is what sets them apart from other superheroes. I think if we did it a hundred times I wouldn’t change a thing. I guess you could have the movie end a half hour earlier if you wanted, but it seemed like people really liked this. And also, I blame Thanos, OK? Jeez, how come he’s not getting any blame? Clearly I’m very sensitive about this. [laughter]”
I completely agree with Chris Pratt here, ok sure, it can be fun to speculate on what would have happened in a movie if this character had done this, or that character had done that. But most likely we would have a boring movie no one was interested in.
Avengers: Infinity War is the most successful comic book movie of all time, I find it hard to argue that they made many mistakes. But that’s me, and you readers may have a different point of view.
