James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy introduced a question that has been the center of obsession of some fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Who is Star Lord’s father? While we still don’t know which character is Star Lord’s dad in the movies, we do know that Kurt Russell will be playing the role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, which is currently filming.
But now news comes out that Jonathan Frakes (who famously played William T. Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation) will be playing Star Lord’s father on the small screen version of Guardians of the Galaxy. But which character is Frakes playing? And will this give us any clues about Peter Quill’s father in Guardians Vol 2?
