“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” director James Gunn and actor Chris Pratt cried after Kurt Russell’s exit on the film. The latter just finished filming his part but the two cannot help but miss him.
Metro allegedly confirmed that Russell portrays the part of (Pratt) Peter Quill’s father. After the shoot, Gunn and Prat went on to praise the 65-year-old actor via social media.
And that’s a wrap on Kurt Russell on #GOTGVol2. A true talent and pleasure in every way. I will admit to a small tear in my eye.

As per the report, “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” plot allegedly reveals Peter Quill’s search for his real father with the help of Racoon Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and Draz the Destroyer (Dave Bautista).
In other news, James Gunn allegedly spilled the beans that there will be no human protagonist on the sequel. According to Comicbook, the director almost said that there will be no human in the pool of lead characters.
Later on, he clarified the statement by saying “for the record, I meant to say no primary human characters besides Peter Quill. Despite his mysterious heritage, I think of him as human.”
It is still speculated that Peter Quill could have an alien heritage while Russell, who is said to be as Quill’s father might be a human. As for the film’s location, rumour has it the “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will have some scenes on Earth.
Meanwhile, there are also hearsays that Gunn will not be the director for “Guardians of the Galaxy 3.” But the director said that it is still unconfirmed.
“I’m not sure what I’m going to do after this… Marvel has talked to me about continuing on. I’m not sure if that’s what I want to do or if that’s not what I want to do,” quotes Den of Geek.
“I really just want to make ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ the greatest possible movie that I can, and something that’s as honest and sincere and true as it can possibly be,” Gunn concluded.
