Kurt Russell Confirmed To Play Starlord’s Father In “Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2”

Kurt Russell will be playing Peter Quill’s (Starlord) father in “Guardians Of The Galaxy, Volume 2”. That part is not too surprising. The suprising part is that he will play Ego The Living Planet.

Ego The Living Planet


According to Marvel:

Ego the Living Planet originated like any other planet, coalescing over millions of years from cosmic gases and dust. But unlike any other known planets, Ego developed consciousness and intelligence.


It’s really hard to describe this guy and dont know how they are going to have Kurt Russell playing the character but have a feeling that Ego will take a human form to relate with Starlord. The picture above shows a photo of Kurt Russell’s costume for Ego.

“Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol 2” opens May 5, 2017.

A Little Planet Hulk Added To “Thor Ragnarok”


Slowly but surely we are getting glimpses of what Hulk’s role with be in “Thor Ragnarok” and it definitely has something to do with the classic “Planet Hulk” storyline. I doubt it will be a faithful adaption but maybe we learn that after the events of “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”, Hulk was taken to another plannet, where he became a warrior and a king. Or it could just be a nod to “Planet Hulk”, which is more likely. Still has me excited to see Thor and Hulk battling together or who knows maybe battling against each other.

“Thor Ragnarok” opens November 3, 2017.

Until then we got our first look at some concept art showing Spider-Man in action against his nemesis, The Vulture. We still are not sure who Michael Keaton will be playing in “Homecoming” but the odds are pretty high you are looking at him in the above promotional art.
