In Guardians of the Galaxy, there was a fair amount of talks about Star-Lord’s dad, but we never fully learned who he was. Now though we may know who’ll be play him at least, as TheWrap says Kurt Russell is the top choice to be Peter Quill’s dad in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
It’s still very early days as no offer has been made to Russell and apparently he hasn’t even seen a script, but director James Gunn wants him and it would appear Kurt is open to the idea. It certainly makes sense, considering Russell is a bit of a 70s/80s icon and Quill is slightly obessed with that era due to be kidnapped from Earth during that period.
It’s not known exactly the character Russell would play, as Gunn has said Star-Lord will have a different father in the movies than the comic books. There’s been speculation that his dad will be Thanos, which is a possibility but not all that likely (despite Bradley Cooper saying it was true before he’s even seen a script).
As well as Chris Pratt returning as Quill, the likes of Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, and Vin Diesel as Groot will also be back. It’ll be in cinemas May 2017.
