Earlier today, Heroic Hollywood unveiled who they believe to be the father of Peter Quill aka Star Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2! The site claims to have four independent sources all claiming it to be the same character. If you want to stay away from any and all spoilers for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 I suggest you click away, but for those of you who can't wait, here we go!
Heroic Hollywood has reported that the father of Peter Quill will be Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell). Now I know what you're probably thinking; Isn't Captain Marvel a woman? Well, you're not wrong. But for those of us with knowledge of deep Marvel comics, we know that there has been more than one Captain Marvel and this version of the character is not Carol Danvers (whom the upcoming Captain Marvel film is based on), this is the Kree super soldier Mar-Vell from the Silver Age of Marvel Comics.
We learnt in Guardians Of The Galaxy that Peter's father was angelic, a being composed of pure light and is a member of an ancient race and he's an extremely powerful being. We heard recently that Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey had been in talks with Marvel about a role and Umberto Gonzalez over at Heroic Hollywood presumes this is the role McConaughey passed on.
We'll probably have to wait until Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5th 2017 to know the truth but for now that's what we have!
