Kurt Russell In Talks For Major GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 Role

Kurt Russell may play an important backstory role in the Marvel sequel!

WARNING: Minor spoilers for character roles in Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2!

Kurt Russell is getting the most out of his recent return to the big screen with roles in The Hateful Eight, Furious 7, and Deepwater Horizons. These roles are big, but none quite as major as the role for which he’s allegedly in negotiations!

According to Variety, Kurt Russell is being eyed for the role of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord’s mysterious father. We don’t know much about who the character actually is. In fact, the only confirmation director James Gunn has given about Peter’s dad is that he’s not J’Son of Spartax like the comics. Additionally, we don’t have many details as to how much importance Quill Sr will haveĀ in the overall Marvel universe.

Marvel has yet to confirm the rumor, but typically, Variety is pretty spot-on when it comes to the actors Marvel is recruiting and the roles we’ll see them in.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is due to start filming sometime in early 2016.
