Guadians of the Galaxy had its numerous build up of secrets but the biggest mystery to ever cross the minds of the fans is the identity of Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord?s father? A lot of rumors and comments have surfaced about the many identities of Starlord?s father, from the character from the original comic, J?Son of Spartax, to the hero Mar-Vell a.k.a. Captain Marvel from the Silver age of comics.
It?s still a while before we see the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie but director James Gunn, with his busy schedule and all, took the time to share to everyone that the rumors spreading about Starlord?s father is definitely not true.
?The rumors surrounding Quill?s parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren?t even close to the truth,? Gunn wrote in a statement. ?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.?
Here?s the entire statement of Gunn?s Facebook post:
“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.
Good thing James Gunn didn?t spare us in telling lies about the rumors. So it?s really just a matter of waiting a little longer if you want to find out the real identity of daddy Starlord.
