Guardians of the Galaxy 2 might feature a huge (literally) Marvel character

01.21.2016

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 James Gunn Chris Pratt Dave Bautista Zoe Saldana Banner

According to Geek.com, one of Marvel's oddest and biggest characters will be featured in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. While the site doesn't have any details on how big of a role he will have or how he'll be used in the sequel, his possible appearance could be considered a spoiler, but remember, this is strictly just a rumor (albeit an awesome one) at this point.

Last chance to avoid spoilers!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Sources tell Geek.com that Ego the Living Planet, a sentient planet who in the comics has battled the likes of Thor, Galactus and the Fantastic Four, is set to appear in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. Ego also once captured Silver Surfer in an attempt to consume his energies, and hired Rocket Raccoon to exterminate an infestation of space lice.

In addition to being incredibly intelligent, the planet also has total control over its entire mass down to the molecular level, possesses psionic abilities and can project blasts that are powerful enough to obliterate other worlds. If true, who would you want to voice Ego?

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is due out on May 5, 2017.

Awesome! I vote for Kevin Spacey just because he should sound like a smart sarcastic prick and his last name is perfect!

In all my years of collecting comics (admittedly none of the cosmic stuff) or watching animated shows and movies, I didn't know Marvel also had a sentient planet in it's roster of characters. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised given Marvel and DC's propensity to have different versions of the the same kind of character...but still, it's true, you learn something new everyday. I dig the beard but doubt a live action version will look as hilarious. :o)

Incidentally, there must have been a story where Galactus tried to consume him...it. If so, how did that go down?

Someone like Keith David could provide a good voice for this character.

Al Pacino did ask to play the villain in GotG2. Will he back out now?

Mike Tyson? lol, no, not really
If Orson Welles was alive around this time, he would be great, (or Nimoy) perhaps Vincent D'Onofrio,
James Earl Jones would be a big maybe; someone with a deeper voice than Diesel

JEJ is not retired, he is actually voicing Vader in Rogue One. He can even stay in the Disney family and do this characters voice. It is a perfect fit!

Event though (or, maybe, BECAUSE) he's already at Disney for SW, he might be a little TO iconic (especially in Disney's mind who might NOT want to, kind of, mix franchises)...
Otherwise, that would be great.
Especially now that Nimoy is no more and Sean is retired (YES, I'd like my planet with a Scottish accent !).

This would be great if he hired the GOTG to help him or if he trapped them
