Marvel star Chris Pratt has finally addressed that controversial internet moment in October which saw him dubbed the 'Worst Chris' in a Twitter poll.

When a seemingly light-hearted poll started by writer Amy Berg asked which famous Chris should go – Pratt, Hemsworth, Evans or Pine – Pratt's name was mentioned so many times that he began trending on Twitter.

Although this may not have seemed too serious a discussion on the surface, Pratt's apparent status as the 'Worst Chris' started to cause a real debate about the actor and his life and several of the Guardians of the Galaxy star's Marvel castmates came out to defend him.

Up until now, Pratt has stayed silent on the entire incident, but a new Instagram video appears to show him addressing the 'Worst Chris' conversation, albeit in a slightly ambiguous manner.

While sharing his excitement about his position in the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League, a league being run for charity that also includes Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, Pratt made a comment about being "picked last" that could very well allude to the Twitter row.

"I made it into the finals! I'm in the finals!" Pratt announced in the video, which you can watch above. "I was picked last. It was very traumatic. Anyone who's been picked last knows how that feels."

He added that he has been victorious over his fellow Chrises in the league, saying that this could be enough to "put an end" to the matter.

"I guess we finally put an end to that debate... Who's the better Chris? It's one of them," he said, jokingly adding: "I do have them in body fat content though, so I am more buoyant. Take that, gang."

Wherever Pratt falls on your own 'favorite Chris' scale, you'll be seeing plenty of him in the coming years as he has a number of movie projects lined up.

As well as preparing to reprise his role as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Pratt will also make an appearance in Thor's fourth solo outing, Thor: Love and Thunder. The actor has also lined up a leading role in karate-based comedy The Black Belt, while he recently wrapped filming on new Jurassic World movie, Jurassic World: Dominion.
