Chris Pratt’s week is off to an awkward start.

The new trailer for Thor: Love & Thunder just dropped and everyone’s talking about how his character, Star-Lord, has the hots for Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth. The film is directed by Taika Waititi and hits theaters this summer.

Quick backstory: Star-Lord was revealed to be in a polyamorous bisexual relationship in a 2020 issue of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic. At that point, Pratt, a longtime member of the anti-LGBTQ Christian cult Hillsong Church, had already played the character in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films in 2014 and 2017, as well as Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

Hillsong Church was founded by accused child sex predator Frank Houston. Its doctrine believes homosexuality is a sin and conversion therapy is the only way to save gay people from going to hell. Pratt has belonged to the megachurch for several years and has denied it hates queer people despite the fact that it very clearly does.

Some people questioned whether he would return to the franchise after learning his character was bisexual. But apparently he was able to put his staunch religious beliefs aside for the sake of a multi-million dollar paycheck art.

Here’s how people are responding to the new Thor: Love & Thunder trailer…
