Try to contain your surprise, folks. Kurt Russell will be playing Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) dad, Ego, in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
While it’s something that we all pretty much figured out, it was made official tonight at the Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Ego will be the guardian of one Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff, when she and him come across the Guardians. It’s going to be pretty awkward once Ego and Star-Lord meet, that’s for sure.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes to theaters on May 5, 2017.
