One of the mysteries left open-ended in Guardians of the Galaxy is the matter of who Star-Lord’s father is. We’ve gotten hints in interviews over the years, but a seemingly spoiler-y new interview with actor Bradley Cooper (who voices Rocket Raccoon in the films) is going viral today.
In the video interview, the actor appears to either accidentally reveal the identity of Star-Lord’s father and the main villain of the upcoming sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, or just get confused about what happened in the original 2014 film. Let’s dive into this, and find out what director James Gunn has to say.
Be warned speculation about possible spoilers follows after the jump.

What are we to make of Vin Diesel? He’s the “tough guy” star of more than one action movie, but he’s a big, silly goofball on social media. He has a reputation for being a little difficult on set, but he spends all of his time between movies being nothing but gracious toward his collaborators. He’s become an icon for energy drink-guzzling bros and Dungeons & Dragons-playing geeks. He’s played tattooed, gravel-voiced spies and adorable talking tree aliens.
And it’s that adorable talking tree alien that brings us here today. The smooth-headed enigma that is Mr. Diesel took to Facebook and shared a live video with his fans, during which he chatted about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, praised James Gunn‘s script for the upcoming sequel, and revealed that the new movie will once again feature more dancing than your average superhero tale.
Hit the jump for Diesel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story comments (as well a reminder of Diesel’s wacky dancing history).

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:
- How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
- How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
- Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
- Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
- Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
- When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
- When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
