Greetings, Friends and Fiends!
Ye Olde Dragon here with breaking news!
Dateline: San Diego!
During the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 panel, director/writer/producer James Gunn dropped the other shoe in a big way – A PLANET-SIZED way, literally. For months, fans were speculating that Kurt Russell would play Peter (Starlord) Quill‘s (Chris Pratt) mysterious father. Not only did Gunn reveal that to be true, but also revealed the father:
EGO, THE LIVING PLANET
At the end of GOTG, Nova Prime (Glen Close) DID tell Quill that his father was “…Ancient and unlike anything we’ve ever seen.” I’d say Ego fits THAT bill.
Gunn apparently brought footage of Russell (in a humanoid form) with Mantis to SDCC, so look out for that in the coming days.
Plenty more news to cover, so stay tuned, Guys and Ghouls!
…End of Line…
