Watch: Saturday Night Live Spoofs Marvel’s Success With ‘Marvel Trailer’ Starring Chris Pratt

Last night, Chris Pratt was the guest host on the season opening episode of “Saturday Night Live”— the show’s 40th anniversary. Being that Pratt starred in “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” a movie that just crossed another box-office milestone— outperforming the domestic gross of “Iron Man” ($319.2 million to date)—it was inevitable that ‘SNL’ would spoof his space adventure.

Can Marvel do no wrong? Can they put out any old movie and gross zillions? Even a movie about a super hero that controls ants (which does seem pretty silly when you think about it)? That’s the gist of the ‘SNL’ digital sketch called “Marvel Trailer,” a little skit/extended trailer starring Pratt, which celebrates and sends up Marvel’s ability to make a hit out of the most bizarre elements. It begs the question, will their reign ever end, and how long will they have this magic touch? Ponder it while you watch the clip below.
