'Guardians of the Galaxy' Director Slams Rumors About Chris Pratt's Character in Epic Facebook Post

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is slamming rumors floating around concerning the character of Peter Quinn (played by Chris Pratt) and who his parents are in the sequel.

“All right. From this moment on I’m going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, someone is going to come up with a spoiler that has some truth to it. That said, the rumors surrounding Quill’s parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren’t even close to the truth. I don’t know how people come up with this stuff, but it certainly isn’t through legitimate sources,” James wrote in a lengthy post on his Facebook.

“Also, I get the desire to get ‘scoops’ on character inclusion and casting choices, etc. But since when is a plot spoiler a ‘scoop’? Is this really what fandom wants to know? Plot details in movies ahead of time? I got in this business because I love movies, and I think most film journalists are the same way. And spoiling plot details doesn’t add to the enjoyment of the film-going experience. So bravo to those folks out there who don’t partake in this sort of thing,” James continued.

The sequel is set to be released by Marvel in May of 2017.

But, as I said, eventually someone will actually spoil some detail of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. So this will be my last comment squelching a rumor until May 2017. But if you do pick up on some plot detail between now and then, be aware, A) They are likely full of shit, as has been everyone so far who has claimed to have had inside info, and B) We’re creating a film that doesn’t rely on plot twists to be an enjoyable experience. They’re only a very small part of what we’re cooking up for you.
