GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 STAR-LORD DISCUSSION
In Vol. 2 Peter finds his father, Ego the living planet. He is pleased to find him and believes he has finally found his family. So Peter learns that he is a half celestial, and he has all these crazy powers. But those powers are gone as the source of the power was destroyed. So no powers for Star-lord going into Infinity War, otherwise he ould possibly put up a fight against Thanos.
My favorite scene of Star-lord in the film was probably the realization of Ego being a villain, and how Ego put a tumor in his mother's head, which killed her. Seeing the emotional torment inside of Peter was a great turning point in the character. The turning point where he finds the thing he has been looking for his whole life, but that thing is the opposite of what he expected, and from there he realizes that the thing he was searching for his whole life was right in front of him this whole time, that being a father, Yondu.
In the future of the MCU, we know that Star-lord and the rest of the Guardians will show up in Avengers Infinity War, and Avengers 4, and Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 will be the last time we see this current lineup of the team. In Infinity War, I won't be surprised if Peter will act like the Silver Surfer, he and the rest of the Guardians discover what Thanos is plotting, come to Earth and warn the planet, meet the Avengers, and fight Thanos. I would expect in the Avengers films that Peter is going to have as much of a culture shock as his off-planet friends about present day Earth. I would like to see a scene in Infinity War where Peter visits his Grandfather, who we know is still alive as he was seen in the Earth scene in vol. 2. Past vol. 3 I feel like Star-lord would stay on the team, just because he is a fan-favorite and everyone would like him to stay on and be a tie between the current Guardians team, and a new one.
Chris Pratt was amazing as Star-lord/Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. It was an emotional film for the character, and I see that James Gunn put so much effort into developing the meaning of family in this film.
