Heroic Hollywood is at it again! Just recently they revealed a hot “scoop” from Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. However, James Gunn gave out a negative reaction about the said spoiler.
Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzales writes how he has to get four different sources to find out who is Peter Quill’s father in the Guardians’ sequel. Besides, what are the odds of four sources being wrong? Anyway, he doesn’t want to put the name in his headline so not to spoil those who wants to be surprised when the movie comes out. He also asks readers to do the same (not mentioning the name in their headlines, banners, tweets, and Instagram posts). He also warns his readers that Marvel will heavily deny the character being Peter Quill’s father.
However, it seems that it’s safe to say that the above video is false: Captain Mar-vell is not Peter Quill’s father. Director James Gunn posted on his Facebook page that all “scoops” about Peter Quill’s father are not true. He calls them spoilers since Quill’s father will bring a huge impact in the sequel and he definitely hates spoilers. Here’s his full message:
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.
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.
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.
It would be hard to believe that James Gunn is lying since fans will call out on him when the movie comes out. And he’s right that spoilers would just ruin the viewing experience
