Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Peter Quill parentage rumour debunked by James Gunn

Many Guardians of the Galaxy fans are looking forward to the sequel to the hit movie, and would very much like to know just who Peter Quill’s father is, as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is said to be at the centre of the sequel. There is a rumour doing the rounds that who Quill’s father is has been revealed.

The rumour had it that Peter Quill/Star Lord’s father has been revealed as Mar-Vell, the ‘Captain Marvel from the Silver Age of Marvel’s tenure’ reports Cinema Blend. However, James Gunn has now debunked that reveal as false.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 director took to his official Facebook page to confirm that Mar-Vell is most definitely not the father of Star Lord in the sequel…


“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.”

So there you have it, the rumour surrounding who Peter Quill’s father is in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is completely incorrect, and let’s face it if anyone should know it is James Gunn.

Gunn also ,mentions at the beginning of his Facebook post that he is going to stop commenting on any rumours surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 as eventually someone is going to come up with a rumour that might have a bit of truth to it, and as such this will be his final comment.

The director ends with a warning… “If you do pick up some plot detail between now and then, be awake, 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 small part of what we’re cooking up for you.”
