James Gunn Shows off Early Star-Lord Helmet DesignNovember 24th, 2015
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the movie that features a very early design for the Star-Lord’s helmet that Chris Pratt would wear. I like it, but I can see why he streamlined it more. The image came with this note:
Very early version of the Star-Lord mask. I wanted the eyes to be big, as if he was perpetually surprised, not your regular hero. We might have overdone it a bit here.
Both helmets look great in my opinion, but the final design that they went with in the film is perfect. Gunn actually claims that he oversees “every facet” of what the characters look like in the film and I believe him. That film was so perfect. It is one of my favorites.
