Chris-Pratt-talks-Star-Lord-future~Matt Key


Though these are all rumors and are completely unconfirmed by the studio or the filmmakers, it’s still entirely possible that these rumors end up being true. So, if you are someone that hates to have their cinema spoiled, it might be smart to not read any further.

That said, it looks as if we might finally be getting to the official rumor phase for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2! The notorious seeker-of-spoilers, El Mayimbe, Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood, has dedicated the better part of a year to seeking out the answer to this question — who is Peter Quill’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2?

For those of you who may have forgotten, Peter Quill is also known as Star-Lord and was played by Chris Pratt in the film.

His answer, which he claims was confirmed by four separate sources, is none other than the Kree warrior, Mar-vell, otherwise known as Captain Marvel. Mar-Vell was first introduced in Marvel Super-Heroes #12 and created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan. He was initially introduced as simply a military officer from the alien race, the Kree, sent to Earth to observe and report back on it’s efforts to achieve interstellar travel. He soon grew tired of this and sided with humanity, branding himself a traitor to the Kree race.


However, where the character REALLY gained popularity was when Jim Starlin took over the character and had the cosmic entity known as Eon appoint him “The Protector of the Universe.” It was here that his cosmic powers started to really take shape and his fight with Thanos started to take on more cosmic proportions. If Marvel is actually going to use Mar-Vell as Star-Lord’s father, it’s this incarnation of the character they’ll use. Well, most likely.


Apparently, this is the role that they went to Matthew McConaughey with, that he then declined.

A lot of rumors had Starfox (Not the Nintendo game!) as Peter Quill’s father as well as Starhawk or Adam Warlock, mostly because all of them match the description given by the Nova Prime (Glenn Close) on Xandar at the end of the first Guardians film. That description was that Peter Quill’s father was part of some ancient race that the Nova Corps had not seen in a long time.

Mar-vell doesn’t really fit that description at all, but that doesn’t mean his origin can’t be tweaked for the cinematic universe. Not to mention, his story of coming to earth to live among us and spy and then having his power present for Carol Danvers to somehow adopt all makes sense for the greater story of the MCU.
