Rumor: A Certain Guardian of the Galaxy Will Have a Significant Role in Avengers: Infinity War
Vin Diesel recently confirmed what we all suspected: the Guardians of the Galaxy will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. But considering how many characters will be in the huge team-up movie, we assumed it would be a small role, maybe even a cameo. Now, rumors are going around that one of the Guardians will have a significant role in the film.

Possible spoilers follow!


According to a new report from Schmoes Know, Chris Pratt's Star Lord will not only appear in the movie, but will be a "major player." Here's what they have to say:
Opening quote
We are reporting that Star-Lord will have a sizable role in Infinity War as the Avengers join up with him as they take on a new cosmic threat. We are not sure if the rest of the Guardians are there too or if they're only joining in on the action for Avengers 4 but we do know that Star-Lord will be the first of the Guardians to make an appearance.
Closing quote

This is all unconfirmed, and the report doesn't name any specific sources, so take it with the usual grain of salt. But still, this all makes sense. Thanos made his first appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, so it always seemed that the Guardians would play a role, and although all of the actors in Guardians have great careers, Pratt's profile has risen the most in the past few years, especially in the geek world (and will continue to do so with this winter's Passengers). Since there will be a huge ensemble, it wouldn't be practical for all of the Guardians to have large roles, but I'm sure they'll appear at some point to join in on the fun.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
