Marvel's Chris Pratt reveals injury after stunt gone wrong

Marvel star Chris Pratt has revealed he suffered an injury after performing a stunt that went wrong.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor took to X (formerly Twitter) on Friday (April 19) to share images of the painful ankle injury, which occurred on the set of his upcoming thriller Mercy.

One snap showed the swelling in Pratt's ankle, while the other featured the actor elevating his leg in his dressing room.

The post read: "Mercy filming day 4. I have such a great stunt team! AND I sometimes try to get in there and do some of my own stuff.

"Today, daddy caught a metal post to the ankle. Should be interesting moving forward."

Directed by Timur Bekmambetov and written by Marco van Belle, the sci-fi film is set in the near future and will see Pratt play a detective.

According to the film's synopsis, Pratt's currently unnamed character "finds himself accused of a violent crime and having to prove his innocence in a society where capital crime is on the rise" (via Deadline).

As well as Pratt, Mercy will also star Dune's Rebecca Ferguson. As the film is still in the early stages of production, details of her character have yet to be revealed – though it's likely she'll play a key role in the action.

Elsewhere, Pratt is set to reprise his role as lieutenant commander James Reece in Prime Video's upcoming prequel The Terminal List: Dark Wolf, which takes place five years before the original series.

After lending his voice to Super Mario, the actor is also returning to the audio booth to play the voracious feline in The Garfield Movie.

Set to hit cinemas next month, Jim Davis' animation will also feature appearances from The Marvels star Samuel L. Jackson, The Great's Nicholas Hoult, Ted Lasso's Hannah Waddingham and SNL alum Cecily Strong.

Mercy will be released in US cinemas on August 15, 2025.
