Loving this look...

And wish we would've got this...

Gotta be honest, Ego might very well be my favorite MCU villain. By the end of the film I thought for sure he was going to achieve "Loki" status among the nerds, but a lot of people either seemed to dismiss him or just like him. I wonder why he resonated with me more than others.

@ScarletWarlock - he was an awesome villain but u know hkw ppl are... when they dislike ONE thing (in this case, the humor)... it means the entire project was a failure
ScarletWarlock - 4/13/2018, 9:20 AM
@Vigor - Yeah, it's weird how the humor stuff derails the Marvel movie with, arguably, the most sincere, human moments in the entirety of the MCU thus far. I challenge anyone to name a movie where it ends with a closeup of a Raccoon crying, mourning the loss of someone, but also realizing that they're worthy of love..........AND HAVE IT ACTUALLY WORK, beautifully might I add. The movie does so much right, it's a shame it's buried underneath a lot of cynicism for humor.

@Vigor - The same people who rip on Vol 2 for its humor, are the same ones that ignore the humor in Wonder Woman. Smh.
Vigor - 4/13/2018, 10:10 AM
@YoloSwaggins812 - welllllll .... Those ARE two different "types" of humor

I'm not disputing the humor of guardians2 was a little much. I think it was in parts. But I don't feel the sum of its parts are greater than its whole. Overall it was a great movie

Loved both Guardians movies, and so did everyone who I talked to.
Just as long as I never have to hear about Drax's nipples ever again...................!!!

The version we got in the movie was kuch better than shown here.
SimplyAz - 4/13/2018, 8:54 AM
@HeavyMetal4Life -

I think so much much was owed to Kurt Russel's performance. Went from being Paternal to malevolent, and it was shocking. Especially how matter of fact he was about giving Peter's mother cancer.
Hope we get to see more of Ego.
HeavyMetal4Life - 4/13/2018, 9:27 AM
@SimplyAz - Kurt Russel was great, really enjoyed his Ego.

Supercat6376 - 4/13/2018, 8:40 AM
Loved what we got. Kurt Russell was great. Does his dying mean Starlord no longer would be able to hold to an infinity stone ?
ScarletWarlock - 4/13/2018, 8:44 AM
@Supercat6376 - Hard to say, I feel like Ego didn't die. Only reason is because before the movie was officially released, Gunn was asked if Kurt and Stallone's characters were going to be used in the longrun, and he said yes very enthusiastically. Now, he could've been mainly referring to Kurt's character, so he's telling the truth while also being coy, so who knows what Star Lord is capable of in a future film. All I know is Ego seemed to be an important character, and I personally doubt we've seen the last of him.
Supercat6376 - 4/13/2018, 8:48 AM
@ScarletWarlock - I hope we haven’t seen the last of him. So much potential there.
bkmeijer2 - 4/13/2018, 9:02 AM
@Supercat6376 - Thats also that the one question that bothers me.
Supercat6376 - 4/13/2018, 9:05 AM
@MalseMarcel - they’ve really weakend the Guardians, especially Drax and Gamora. So I feel Starlord needs that celestial power to balance that loss.
ScarletWarlock - 4/13/2018, 8:48 AM
Gunn on Ego and Stakar:
"This is definitely not a one-off [for them]. They’re both characters that we’ve taken a lot of time to develop, and they’re a big part of the MCU now."

It's weird how barely anyone talks about this quote, it contradicts the ending of vol.2 where Ego flat out appears to die, but even Gunn has said he doesn't lie to the fans. He will just shut up if the alternative is spouting lies.

eagc1995 - 4/13/2018, 8:56 AM
@ScarletWarlock - Well in that case he had to say it that way, otherwise people would be ranting about how James spoiled Ego's death
ScarletWarlock - 4/13/2018, 9:08 AM
@eagc1995 - Thing is, Gunn has made a big point to not lie to the fans. I watch his Facebook live videos all the time, and he maintains that he has never once lied to the fans, and he even made the whole rule of not responding to even fake rumors because he doesn't want to be coy about it, despite how obviously untrue the rumor may be, because it narrows down the truth of the story every time he debunks. So I'm not sure, he would straight up be breaking his one rule by saying an outright lie. I don't know, I guess we'll see. Ego seemed really important as a character, so maybe Gunn was 100% telling the truth when he said that character has longevity.
