Star Lord’s Father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Has Officially Been Revealed
A lot of exciting things are happening at the Marvel panel in Hall H at SDCC tonight. A brand new Doctor Strange trailer premiered, as well as an exclusive clip of Spider-Man: Homecoming. In addition, the very first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was screened to those lucky enough to be in attendance, and the panel also delivered on that big GotG reveal everyone has been waiting to see.

Star Lord's father was announced to be Ego, and will be played by none other than Kurt Russell. This came as quite the surprise, as Ego (who is referred to as "The Living Planet") is not the father of Star Lord in Marvel comics canon. This raises a whole lot of questions, and the logistics of how a planet is the father of a human being is not the least of them.

Guardians of the Galaxy was somewhat of surprise hit, and is heralded by many as the best film to come out of the MCU thus far. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the sequel, which, as a reference to Star Lord's infamous mixtape, has been officially dubbed "Volume 2."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5th, 2017.
