Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 – 5 Most Likely Candidates To Be Star-Lord’s Father

No Comments

Guardians of the Galaxy – one of the biggest movie successes of 2014 – introduced cinema audiences to the character of Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord. Played by Parks and Recreation’s Chris Pratt in the Marvel Studios offering, Star-Lord first appeared in Marvel comic books back in 1976.

In the comic books, his father turns out to be Jason of Spartax – the Emperor of the Spartoi Empire – and, while it was generally assumed that he was entirely human in the movie adaptation, it was confirmed at the end that he wasn’t.

Quill was able to briefly withstand the power of the Orb – an Infinity Stone – thanks to the fact that he is part-alien. But which alien being will turn out to be his father?

2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will reveal that information but, in the mean time, we can only speculate. Here are the five most likely candidates.

Although this has seemingly been ruled out by director James Gunn, it would be foolish to take his word for it at this stage (after all, why would he want to give away information about a movie that’s two years away?).

Jason of Spartax AKA J’son is, as we’ve already mentioned, Star-Lord’s father in the comic books. He impregnated Quill’s mother when he visited Earth and the two reunited when Quill was older. Therefore, it does make sense that he would be his father in a movie based on the comic books.

There was something of a hint towards this outcome in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, when John C. Reilly’s character Rhomann Dey referred to Quill as “Star Prince“. This would seem to suggest that he stemmed from royalty, which is exactly what J’son is.

However, given Gunn’s comments, this seems to be one of the least likely outcomes out of those on this list at this stage.
