(CBR) Spoiler alert for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” as well as bad news for fans of bearded humanoid aliens — director James Gunn has revealed that the expertly groomed Spartax ruler J'son will not make it into the film's sequel, due out in 2017. Gunn stated in an interview with Empire that he has something else in mind when the time comes to reveal the identity of Peter Quill's papa.
“There have been a lot of documents passed around about who Peter Quill's father is between a select two or three of us,” said Gunn. “That's been part of the plan since the beginning, that's something I had to work out before we shot the screenplay. We wanted to make sure Yondu's place in everything made sense and it does, so it's all very specific stuff. It's definitely not the character who it is in the comics, I'll say that much.”
There are a few things we do know about Daddy Quill based on information in “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Quill's mother called him an “angel,” he hired the Ravagers to abduct Peter back in 1988, his genetic code is something the Nova Corps has never encountered before, and he's a bit of an a-hole. With those clues in mind, let's get into the Maury Povich mindset and conduct some paternity tests.
