Fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy comics know that Peter Quill’s father is the leader of the Spartoi Empire named J’Son. While his dad was hinted at in Guardians of the Galaxy, they didn’t introduce him in the movie.
Obviously they’re saving him for the sequel, and James Gunn told Empire he won’t be who you’re expecting him to be:
Importantly, Gunn had a major revelation for fans trying to work out who Peter Quill’s father might be. “Itâ€™s definitely not the character who it is in the comics, Iâ€™ll say that much.”
The Ravagers called him a “jackass” at the end of the first movie, so at least that character trait of J’Son will carry over.
