We've known for a long time now that Ego the Living Planet will be revealed as Star-Lord's father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but the fact he takes on a human form has left many fans baffled. 

Well, in an interview with Complex to promote the release of The Belko Experiment, director James Gunn explained how the character is able to create a human form which he used to seduce Meredith Quill and to communicate with his son and the rest of the team in the highly anticipated sequel. 

"Ego is a living planet who is able to manifest himself in different ways he’s been alone for millions of years and he’s learned how to control the molecules around him in such a way as to create avatars of themselves, such as Kurt Russell," says the filmmaker. "I think Ego was a very lonely character out there by himself and went off in search of love and perhaps found it in Quill’s mother."

He definitely doesn't sound like a traditional villain then, though we don't know for sure that he will actually be a bad guy in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! These comments also pretty much confirm that Ego will appear in his Living Planet form, something many believe has already been spotted in the trailers. What do you guy think? As always, let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
