Firstly, this is his first time, starring as the central character in a mega budget superhero film and to top it, the movie is set in the Marvel Universe. Basically, the movie could end up being as successful as the Avengers, which in turn would opens doors for Pratt that he did not know existed before, just like it did for Tobey Maguire after he was cast as Spiderman. Secondly, if the movie works, there would obviously be a few sequels, and Pratt being Star Lord the leader of the Guardians, would possibly star in all of them. This would in turn mean millions of dollars for him in fees and possibly even endorsements.
Thirdly, this movie might even lead to him getting starring roles in a bunch of other big budget Hollywood films. Pratt was chosen for the role, as the makers possibly wanted a relatively fresh face that everyone would identify mainly as Star Lord once the movie releases; just like everyone identifies Chris Hemsworth as Thor, even though he has acted in other films. For those unaware, in the Marvel Universe, Star-Lord is a master strategist and problem solver who is an expert in close quarter combat, various human and alien firearms and battle techniques. In other words, Pratt might have to train in a bunch of other things, besides pumping iron.
