Kurt Russell is the latest iconic actor to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing as Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. In a recent interview with Fandango, Russell spoke highly of the film and its creators. He was a little more reticent, however, when asked about his possible future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

“What you’d have to do is put your mind to it,” Russell told Fandango. “You have to sit down and say, these are my issues β€” these are my questions. I’m an audience too. We all run into our own integrity no matter what, as much as I hate to admit it. I need to find a way that this is going to grow and be fun and most of all for me it needs to be fun to find as we go along. Right now I got part of it β€” we have to see. I don’t know. I don’t know if I fit into that mold.”

But whether or not Russell returns for more Marvel films, he definitely enjoyed his time making this one. “Great experience,” he said. “That guy James Gunn really knows what he’s doing; he’s real sharp. And all the cast is great β€” I had a great time working with Chris [Pratt].”

Russell’s next film, Deepwater Horizon, hits theaters Sep. 30. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently set for release on May 5, 2017.
