Star-Lord actor and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" lead star, Chris Pratt, has recently expressed his thoughts on what exactly went wrong with Warner Bros and DC's 2016 movie, "Suicide Squad."

The "Jurassic World" actor was asked by io9 last week during a "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" junket about DC's "Suicide Squad." He said that he really liked the Warner Bros movies and think they are cool. However, with the supervillain crossover particularly, he noticed that the production tried to introduced too many characters in the movie without any sort of buildup.

"They spent 10 minutes telling us why should we care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters," he said. The 37-year-old actor then continued to point out how the Marvel Cinematic Universe pulled off its successful attempt to bring all the movies together.

"They didn't create The Avengers first. They did Iron Man. And they tested it to make sure it worked," Pratt continued. "Then they did [Iron Man II] and [Iron Man III], then they did Cap, and then they did Thor. And they created a thirst for these characters, and that's when they put them in The Avengers."

Many seem to agree with Pratt's view on why "Suicide Squad" did not perform well in the box office. Slash Film noted that introducing the characters in the movie is a difficult feat to pull off, most especially because of their background being villains in the DC universe.

Others believe that the build up is not exactly necessary in the case of "Suicide Squad." Screenrant reported that the film introduced characters that are not well-written, unlike the ones in "Guardians of the Galaxy" that did not dwell in their backstories but have rich personalities.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is scheduled to hit cinemas on May 5.
