    The brooding and tough impression of a superhero as put forward by Batman or Superman was definitely broken by Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth. And for Glen Powell, this transition is what helped him navigate his way through Hollywood. In an interview with GQ, Powell revealed that watching Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill on screen in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was a major turning point for him. 

    The same goes for Chris Hemsworth. Thor has suffered numerous losses throughout the movies but still the element of fun and laughter still remains in his character. And that is what inspired Powell. 

    These guys can take a punch and sell a joke. I feel like that’s when I started catching friction on the sidewalk,” Powell said in his interview with GQ while talking about Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt. Understanding the shift in the behavioral composition of the leading man greatly affected Powell’s interpretation of the industry.
