While promoting The Belko Experiment, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn talked about Kurt Russel’s character, Ego the Living Planet.
“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. 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.”
