Peter Quill’s dad revealed for Guardians of the Galaxy 2?


Update: James Gunn has responded to the rumor.

James Gunn, who’s directing Guardians of the Galaxy 2, has revealed before that Peter Quill’s dad isn’t going to be the same in the comics. In the comics, the father is Jason of Spartax, an Emperor of the Spartoi Empire. Now we have a report from Heroic Hollywood that it has figured out who’s going to be the daddy.

Possible spoilers ahead

According to the site, Mar-Vell is going to be Peter Quill’s dad. In the comics, he’s a Kree named Captain Mar-Vell who became known as the first Captain Marvel.

I wonder why the filmmakers would change Peter’s dad? Perhaps Marvel Studios is planning on setting up the origin story for Carol Danvers, who later becomes Captain Marvel? It would definitely be a nice segue to Captain Marvel’s solo film.

Heroic Hollywood believes that Marvel was eyeing Matthew McConaughey to play the dad. The site also thinks that instead of being a Kree, he’ll be an Inhuman.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
