Umberto Gonzalez over at Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Peter’s father is silver-age Captain Marvel and that Marvel Studios tried to get Matthew McConaughey for the part, but he turned it down.

This potential plot thread (still a rumor at this point) would explain how Peter was able to hold an Infinity gem.

No official announcement has been made by Marvel Studios.

The first Captain Marvel was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan in Marvel Super-Heroes #12 (December 1967). This character is an alien military officer, Captain Mar-Vell of the Kree Imperial Militia, who is sent to observe the planet Earth as it is developing technology to travel into space. Mar-Vell eventually wearies of his superiors’ malign intent and allies himself with Earth, and the Kree Empire brands him a traitor. From then on, Mar-Vell fights to protect Earth from all threats.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, and Zoe Saldana.

The film will be in theaters on May 5, 2017.
