Marvel's Kevin Feige answers big questions about 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

According to IGN on Tuesday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige answered some concerning questions regarding "Guardians of the Galaxy 2." Considering there had been a reference made by Yondu Udonta, played by Michael Rooker, in regards to Star-Lord's father. Also, in Peter Quill's mother's last moments, she mentions his father in sort of a divine fashion. This is one of quite of few lead-ins to the sequel when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As far as addressing Peter Quill's father, Feige addressed this as something that was important for the purpose for being "seeded" at the end of the movie, though those comic book fans who already are familiar with J"Son, they pretty much know the outcome and the role Star-Lord's father plays. However, this could follow a different path in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Feige thinks that addressing this would likely to be part of the next Guardians adventure.

"I think it's pretty important. I think there's a reason we seeded it at the very end of the film like that. I think that would certainly be part of a next Guardians adventure. Certainly, that would be part of it."

Feige also addressed the possiblity of Nebula making her return to "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" being how she hasn't "overtly perish" in the film. Also, he addressed in the natural order of comic book story lines Nebula takes on numerous roles. With actress Karen Gillan taking on such an unusual and diverse character, Feige addresses the desire for her to be seen again.

"I would say any character that doesn't overtly perish is certainly fair game to come back. If people know the comic lore, Nebula has a lot of varying different roles to play over the course of a lot of different titles in the comics. We have somebody like Karen, and you have a look that is so weird and so great. I think that's something we'd all like to see again."

Also, the elephant in the room regarding Josh Brolin's Thanos. Eventually, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is eventually going to have some kind of end game when it comes to the Mad Titan. Typically, it would likely play out in "Avenger 3", but it is noted that it would make sense of there to be any kind of consequences of Thanos' wrath.

Though, if Feige were to say anything at this point about that situation, it would be a spoiler. The Marvel Studios president address that there could be a Thanos-centered film, but with the beauty of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that characters can just show up in any franchise.

"The truth is, anything I say would be a spoiler, frankly, on that. I don't think it's required. I think you could go right into a Thanos-centered movie and tell the audience anything you need to know. But the fun of our universe is that the characters can pop up in multiple franchises, so... perhaps. It is a good question."

There's also been a lot of talks of the Guardians encountering The Avengers at any given point and Feige thought it would be fun to see how they would interact with each other if they did meet. For example, it would be amusing seeing how Steve Rogers would interact with Rocket, or with Drax being as literal as he is have his banter with Tony Stark. Though one may note that with Drax being literal as he is, he perhaps would be ready for Stark as he would already be experienced with Peter Quill's Terran-like dialogue and his knowledge of John Stamos.

"What would Tony Stark think of a Norse god who wields a hammer? The brilliance of Joss [Whedon] was having fun with that. So who knows if and when these guys would ever connect, but it is fun thinking about, how would Steve Rogers react to Rocket? Or, you're right, Drax couldn't even have a conversation with Tony Stark! [Laughs] I have a theory that the more time Drax spends with Peter Quill, the more he's going to start to learn, perhaps, that people aren't always as literal as his species would assume."
