Now that Netflix has announced a “Gears of War” film, the maker expressly does not want Marvel star Chris Pratt to be there.
While video game adaptations are generally considered to be of poor quality, their reputation has changed in recent years with films such as Sonic the Hedgehog. Netflix in particular was able to convince with its implementations. Both the League of Legends series Arcane and the new Cyberpunk 2077 series Cyberpunk: Edge Runners received consistent praise. Now the streaming service had announced that it would “Gear of War” to the next big video game franchise.
After Marvel star Dave Bautista (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) applied directly for a role, “Gears of War” creators Cliff Bleszinski announces via Twitter which star he is no way want to see in a film adaptation. We’re talking about Bautista’s Marvel co-star Chris Pratt:
“Oh and please make Chris Pratt stay away from the ‘Gears’ franchise.”

That’s why Chris Pratt shouldn’t be part of “Gears of War”.
The reason for the tweet should be another role of Pratt. In fact, he will voice the famous plumber in the upcoming “Super Mario Bros. Movie”. However, fans were not enthusiastic about his voice. He was accused of not sounding like the iconic voice from the video games, but just like Chris Pratt. Additionally, Pratt’s lack of Italian roots has been criticized in relation to his role in the animated film. If you can’t get enough of Pratt, you can relive his previous appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+.
With all the fan criticism, it’s no wonder that Bleszinski is now stepping away from the actor and doesn’t want to let him into his franchise. At the same time, the developer’s comment might not be meant to be taken too seriously. There are currently two projects planned for the Gears of War franchise, namely a live-action film and an animated series. It remains to be seen whether the projects will have similar successes as Netflix’s other adaptations.
