Ego the Living Planet

When James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy debuted back in 2014, it instantly established itself as one of the most visually stunning films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, it sounds like this summer’s follow-up, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is raising the bar for visual effects not only in Marvel movies, but for the entire medium as a whole. At least that’s what Gunn is implying when he talks about one of the film’s craziest characters. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Cast

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been in the can for quite some time now. Therefore, it comes as a bit of a surprise that with just about a month and a half to go before the movie hits theaters that we’re hearing about a new cast member.

Straight from director James Gunn we have word that a cast member from the Superman TV series Smallville has joined his Marvel sequel. Furthermore, this previously unheard of cast member is reportedly “very important to the Marvel Cinematic Universe” and they seem to have ties to another key cast member, who is also a newcomer to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

UPDATE: James Gunn has clarified his statements on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and we have updated the post below.

There are few sure things. The Earth is round. The sky is blue. The Pope is Catholic. Marvel Studios always has another sequel up their sleeve. So when Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn says that there will most definitely be a third film in the comic book space opera series, the big news isn’t that another movie is coming. The big news is that Gunn won’t say whether or not he’s going to make it.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 - Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet

In the Marvel comic book universe, Ego the Living Planet is exactly what his name suggests: he is a literal living planet, with a face and everything, who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans. The character will make his cinematic debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where he will be played by actor Kurt Russell, a human being who is not a literal living planet with a face and everything who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans.

Following a brand new clip that debuted over the weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is starting their TV marketing campaign a bit early, probably to get in front of all the eyes glued to NCAA’s March Madness.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

This past weekend, Nickelodeon had their annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which meant it was a prime time for studios to advertise their latest blockbusters to the coveted younger demographic. The new footage unfurled included the newest trailer for Wonder Woman (which you can watch right here), as well as the first clip from Transformers: The Last Knight. But Marvel Studios also brought a treat for all of the kids who tuned in.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted another clip featuring everyone’s favorite ragtag team of space criminals, and this time there’s a bit of a disagreement between Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon regarding who is the best pilot in the universe. The argument escalates to the point of one particularly gross threat that brings Drax the Destroyer into the fray.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Ego

The latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer offered our first look at Kurt Russell‘s Ego the Living Planet in real, live, flesh-and-blood form. As we’ve known since Comic-Con last year, Ego is the biological dad that Peter has been searching for. But now that the mystery of Star-Lord’s parentage has been solved, we’re left with still more questions about the guy. Like: why is he here? What does he want with Peter? For that matter, do we know Ego is Peter’s dad? All we have to go on right now is his word, and we don’t know how trustworthy this guy is.

While combing through the new promo, we started to form some ideas about the role Ego could play in the movie, based on the footage we’ve seen so far, the interviews conducted with the cast and crew, and the character’s comic book history. Learn more about him below.  Read More »
