Finally. An investigation a year in the making that got ramped up after the last comic con. After I broke the news of Colin Trevorrow directing Star Wars: Episode IX, I needed to hunt something bigger. Marvel Studio’s biggest and most speculated mystery – the revelation of Peter Quill’s father – fit the bill. Marvel can’t lay out a score this big and this sexy, and not expect me to go after it.
It was a lot of fun and informative to read all the speculation pieces by other outlets. For a story of this magnitude, I took my time and gathered as many sources as I possibly could on this one. I got a total of four. They were tasked with one objective: get me a name. Nothing else. No specifics, no details, just a name. What are the chances that four individuals who don’t know each other getting such a crucial piece of information wrong? The chances are highly unlikely.
It goes without saying that this is a MASSIVE SPOILER. I made a video which you can watch below. Please be respectful of those who don’t want to know so no revealing the name in headlines, banners, tweets, and instagram posts. I know it’s impossible to enforce, all I can do is merely ask.
I was warned that this would be heavily denied so if Marvel comes out swinging don’t buy it. It’s expected. After all, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 is still two years out. Again, what are the chances of four different sources being wrong. Also, the following character plays a pivotal role in the origin of another Marvel signature character getting a solo film. I suspect this was the part Matthew McConaughey recently passed on.
So without further ado…
Peter Quill’s father finally REVEALED!
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 drops in theaters on May 5th, 2017.
