Marvel and Disney begin to prepare the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. III. Although there are still six months to wait for the release of the film in theaters, just around the corner is the The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, directed by James Gunn, A production in television format aimed at giving these superheroes a little more experience. But this is not the only thing: relevant information regarding Star-Lord has been revealed.
In an episode of Marvel Studios: Legendsthe protagonists are Drax, played by dave bautistaand Mantis, incarnated by Pom Klementieff. During these chapters, there is a moment in which both share a conversation. This is part of a deleted post-credit scene. In it, it is discovered that Ego, that character represented by kurt russellis his father.
What does this imply? That Mantis and Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, are brothers. During the first two films of Guardians of the Galaxy, the superhero group was put together naturally, without them having much of a relationship with each other. Over time, they have become something of a family metaphorically… and now also literally, with this closeness between Mantis and Star-Lord.
In one of the chapters of Marvel Studios: Legends Drax can be seen commenting to Mantis the following: “Why don’t you want me to tell him? He (Star-Lord) should know that you are his sister.“. The detail is not minor, considering that one of Star-Lord’s personal searches has to do with his idea of family and the possibility of forming one.
At Drax’s comment, Mantis commented to him: “Our only connection (in reference to Ego) is the source of his greatest embarrassment. I think not”, which he will not tell him. Taking into account what Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special it will have a lot to do with Star-Lord, since the group will travel to earth to look for a gift for him, could this be the moment in which the approach will take place? According to Mantis, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vo. II, Ego found her in a larva state and decided to adopt her. This is the origin of the brotherhood between Star-Lord and Mantis.
Another alternative is that this confession is one of the axes on which it will revolve Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. III. In theory, and according to some clues that have been leaked, this group of superheroes would have no further journey within the Marvel Cinematic Universe after this production. So, it is intuited that these pending in the particular paths of each character will be treated.
It should be noted that Disney, for some time, has been developing different series to further expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Therefore, it is valid to suspect that some of the characters in the Guardians of the Galaxy could have an independent story. He already passed with Groot, on whom he became I am Groot.
