We may not know WHO Star Lord’s father is but now we may know who might play him. And it’s glorious.
The Wrap are reporting that FTN favourite Kurt Russell is James Gunn’s top choice for the role of Star Lord/Peter Quill Snr in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and, no matter who he is, we totally agree.
In the comics, his father is J’son, also known as Jason of Spartax, and he is the Emperor of the Spartoi Empire although Gunn has said the movie will not necessarily follow that plot.
Apparently the role hasn’t been offered yet but it’s only a matter of time.
Russell has so far this year starred in Fast & Furious 7, The Hateful 8 and Bone Tomahawk, so he’s certainly big news right now, so this makes sense in that respect.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and Dave Bautista, along with Pom Klementieff are all onboard for the sequel so far which is set for release in May 5th, 2017.
