While it wouldn't surprise me, a lot of sites are saying this mainly since James Gunn said in an old interview who he'd like to play the father. No official confirmation as of yet. Closest was a quote somewhere about the film casting both the father and the villain.

My hope is that he's bearded future Simon Williams, aka Hollywood like in the original GOTG comic, but somehow I doubt this.

He's definitely the Hollywood version, there's images coming out of a bunch of fake movies starring him from a film festival somewhere.

This is the only upcomign Marvel film I'm interested in and I adored that this teaser was really just a character moment. My favorite part of it all was Davin's reaction while we watched it together. As the trailer was winding down: "This is good, but I wish we could see some Grooooooooooaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!"

I'm personally excited for this one, but between my general burnout of comic book movies and my quiet fear of Marvel not knowing what made Guardians 1 good, I'm hoping that this movie is good.

Reviews are out, and almost everyone is saying it's not as good as the first one. Also I got spoiled reading one of them, so fuck them. Why would a legitimate reviewer put spoilers in a review for a movie not out yet?
