Why Kurt Russell Role in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Was Not a Spoiler

Celebnmovies247 have learned that the rumors were true. Kurt Russell will be portraying Chris Pratt’s father as well as playing Ego the Living Planet according to James Gunn.

James Gunn who would rather not share any news said:

“I get it. If we lived in a perfect world, I wouldn’t tell you ANYTHING before you walked in to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I wouldn’t tell you Groot was now Baby Groot, I wouldn’t tell you Mantis was in the movie, I wouldn’t say that Ayesha and Taserface are our antagonists, that Yondu and Nebula have incredibly important roles in the film, nor would I tell you that Quill’s father is Ego the Living Planet.”

However, the world is imperfect, Gunn went on to say:

“Secondly, there are journalists online who love giving you scoops about characters and plot twists in upcoming films. Ego is such a big part of the movie, this was going to come out soon, as much as we’ve tried to hide it (when our online press day happened on set, Kurt Russell sat in a chair that read “J’son,” and all of our script pages and artwork featuring him used the same name). Frankly, I would rather be in control of the announcement myself than have it come out on SpoilersRUs.com in a few weeks.”

Quinn added:

“That said, knowing who Quill’s father is will not diminish your enjoyment of the film in any way. The story is not built to be a shocking twist in the same way Luke’s father was Darth, Soylent Green was people, Rosebud was a sled, or that pretty woman from Crying Game had a penis (I guess I should have said spoilers before all that). Ego is the emotional center of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from the beginning to the end, and is not a twist.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director concluded:

“And believe me – there are many, many more surprises we still have in store for you from Vol. 2 – hopefully the biggest of which is how much you’ll love the movie itself. Because, to me, that’s the only twist that matters.”

Sounds exciting to us and we at Celebnmovies247 are anxious to see the movie. How about you?
