Guardians of the Galaxy: Who is the Father of Starlord?

Marvel Studios released the conceptual art and teaser trailer from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with all the main characters at San Diego Comic Con. The characters of Guardians of the Galaxy include – StarLord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel) etc. However, new characters such as Nebula, Mentis and Yondu have been added in the sequel.

Chris Pratt played the role of Starlord/Peter Quill in his own inimitable style with great comic timing. He is coming back with a new armor on his chest. The most powerful secret of Guardians series is the identity of Peter Quill’s father. In comic-world, his father is Jason Quill (J’son of Spartax, Emperor of Spartoi empire, second son of galactic Emperor) but in the movies, it is unlikely to be the case. There was a strong possibility of Kurt Russell who is recently being added to the cast to play Starfox (Eros of Titan, younger brother of Thanos and father of Peter Quill). At San Diego Comic-Con, it was indeed revealed that Kurt Russell is playing Star Lord’s father “Ego”. He made a grand entrance and said “After all these years, I’ve found you. … I’m your dad, Peter.” The intention of writer James Gunn is to introduce family relations component to the sequel. Also, it was revealed at the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy that Peter Quill has a powerful ancient DNA which further lend credibility to the theory.

GOTG Vol.1 had one of the most amazing marketing campaigns by Marvel, as they managed to not just introduce these characters well, instead made the audience love them more than anyone expected. The sequel is heading in the same direction and is set to overwhelm Marvel fans yet again. CHEERS!
