Later this year, Marvel Studios will finally release its new upcoming film, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, into theaters. The inter-galactic superhero movie will bring back all the same cast, including Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), and his group of hilarious heroes to again save the universe from threats beyond our earth. The new film will also include new characters from the Guardians’ universe. Director James Gunn of the new marvel film, recently talked about two men, hinting a special relationship between them.
USA Today had interviewed the director, stating he spoke about the upcoming film’s inclusion of Star-Lord’s relationship with his father, Ego the Living Planet.
“It runs the gamut of emotions for him, wanting to understand why his father wasn’t around to quickly idolizing him and ultimately learning the reality of the relationship and comparing the man who sired him to the man who raised him.”
He had also stated that the film will be one that specifically explores, of course the team, but also all of the complex inner workings within it.
“To let somebody love you is a very difficult thing, especially when you’re damaged goods. “And all of the Guardians are damaged goods.”
This is not, however, the first time someone from the Guardians film has mentioned anything about Star-Lord’s heritage. Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), apparently spoke last year to Empire about his character’s parentage, saying that Star-Lord is going to struggle with new family dynamics in the movie.
“You’re going to see these characters having to endure the realities of being in a family,” he said. “You’re talking about a guy who’s been longing to know who his father is for a long time. He’ll discover if that person lives up to the expectations he has in his head.”
