It’s true! Russell will play Ego — but that isn’t a spoiler, says Gunn.

It’s official: Kurt Russell will play Ego the Living Planet, Star-Lord’s father, in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Russell’s character was announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego before a packed Hall H, and some fans have since approached director James Gunnabout why he would reveal such an important piece of the plot before the movie hit theaters. Gunn took to Facebook to answer this explain the decision, explaining that he would rather have not shared the information, but he had reasons for doing so.

“Firstly, we have to advertise our film,” he wrote. “And it will be impossible to show you very much of ‘Vol. 2’ since Ego is very much a part of all of it. We just don’t have a way around it.”

“That said, knowing who Quill’s father is will not diminish your enjoyment of the film in any way,” he explained. “The story is not built to be a shocking twist in the same way Luke’s father was Darth, Soylent Green was people, Rosebud was a sled, or that that pretty woman from ‘Crying Game’ had a penis (I guess I should have said spoilers before all that). Ego the emotional center of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ from the beginning to the end, and is not a twist.”

He went on to tease that there would be “many, many more surprises” in the film and that he hoped fans’ enjoyment of it would be the biggest one of all, which is “the only twist that matters.”

Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” opens on May 5, 2017.
