If that wasn’t enough, Marvel dropped the official press release, which gave us new information to mull over. It reveals that Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Kurt Russell have joined the cast. After plenty of rumors, it’s been confirmed that Russell will join the cast, but who will he play? Might he playing the role of Peter Quill’s father? If that wasn’t enough, the press release states that we’ll see the Guardians “unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.”
We’ll have to see who Russell plays once the film hits stateside on May 5th, 2017. If that’s a long wait, you can still get your Marvel Cinematic Universe fix this year with Captain America: Civil War (May 6th), and Doctor Strange (November 4th).
