We Apparently Don't Know Star-Lord's Father
Lots of rumors have been "leaking" lately surrounding the identity of Peter Quill's father in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, with the latest claim from Heroic Hollywood stating that the Kree hero Mar-Vell is Star-Lord's dad. But director James Gunn has come out to say the rumor is completely untrue, and not only that, but he's not going to comment on anymore rumors going forward, and he even calls out the spoiler culture of some fans.

Opening quote
"All right. From this moment on I'm going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, someone is going to come up with a spoiler that has some truth to it. That said, the rumors surrounding Quill's parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren't even close to the truth. I don't know how people come up with this stuff, but it certainly isn't through legitimate sources. Also, I get the desire to get "scoops" on character inclusion and casting choices, etc. But since when is a plot spoiler a "scoop"? Is this really what fandom wants to know? Plot details in movies ahead of time? I got in this business because I love movies, and I think most film journalists are the same way. And spoiling plot details doesn't add to the enjoyment of the film-going experience. So bravo to those folks out there who don't partake in this sort of thing. But, as I said, eventually someone will actually spoil some detail of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. So this will be my last comment squelching a rumor until May 2017. But if you do pick up on some plot detail between now and then, be aware, A) They are likely full of shit, as has been everyone so far who has claimed to have had inside info, and B) We're creating a film that doesn't rely on plot twists to be an enjoyable experience. They're only a very small part of what we're cooking up for you."

Gunn certainly has a point. Learning about characters and casting are one thing, but learning about plot twists before a movie comes out really takes the fun out of the experience. But since plot spoilers are sometimes unavoidable once they start floating around the internet, the silver lining here seems to be that Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 doesn't rely on these kinds of twists to be a fun movie (nor did the first Guardians of the Galaxy), meaning nothing will dampen how great this film is going to be.

You can't spoil the unspoilable.
