AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR: Chris Pratt Talks Working With Robert Downey Jr.; Reveals He's Almost Done Filming

With the Guardians of the Galaxy finally crossing paths with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War, Chris Pratt has opened up about his experience working with Robert Downey Jr.

Two epic teams will finally unite in Avengers: Infinity War, where Earth's Mightiest Heroes will meet the spacefaring Guardians of the Galaxy to take on the villainous Thanos. Along with the character crossover, this will be the first time that many of the MCU's roster of actors will share scenes together, something that star Chris Pratt (Star Lord) was both excited and intimidated by. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pratt revealed that his Guardians director, James Gunn, cast the role with the mindset of the actor being able to play off of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in any sort of crossover.

“Early on, James said that, when he was casting the role of Quill, he was thinking of somebody who was gonna one day be in a scene opposite Robert Downey Jr. He knew that character had that potential, that there was a collision course for these characters, potentially,” Pratt told the publication. “At that time, that was really daunting to think of that. And over the past couple of years I’ve been slowly learning, and honing my job and my skill set for this job.”

Pratt also discussed his experience with Downey Jr. on set, likening it to being part of a musical supergroup with a talented jazz musician. “Getting to work with Robert, it just felt really really natural. He’s a remarkable actor,” Pratt said. “I’d heard stories abut his work ethic, and his specific style of acting in regard to being in the moment, changing things up, keeping you on your toes. Essentially, it’s like playing with a great jazz musician or something like that. You kind of work on your chops for years, thinking there’s a chance you’re going to get a chance to work with this great jazz musician, and then you do, and you watch him go off on some solo, and you’re pumped because you know that after four bars you’re going to get a chance to come in and do your own thing, and you sit there and you make some good music. It was really cool. I felt like I was playing in part of a supergroup or something.”

The actor is also certain Infinity War will deliver what fans want to see in the ultimate Avengers movie, along with revealing that he's almost finished filming his scenes. “It’s exactly what the fans want,” Pratt told the Toronto Sun. “I’ve heard over and over from people, ‘When are the Guardians going to meet up with the Avengers?’ I was never sure how that would happen or if that would happen, but then they announced it and called us and told us it was happening. We’ve shot most of it — my stuff — and I can tell you, the fans are not going to be disappointed. It’s going to be really freaking cool.”
