After being rumored as up for the role of Star-Lord's father in "Guardians 2," Kurt Russell confirmed that he has talked to Marvel about the role on the WolfPop podcast, Russell confirms he has spoken with Gunn about a role -- but that he hadn't seen the first film and had to see it before seriously considering signing on.

"I literally got a phone call two days ago about this," Russell explained. "I've never seen 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' so I don't know anything about it. Many times I've heard, 'That's a really fun movie, a really good movie [with] great characters.' I don't know it!"

"I didn't realize that [James Gunn] had written and directed it, but we talked to each other on the phone," he continued. "And I just had to be honest and say, 'Thank you for considering me, I have to read [the script], and I have to watch the [first] movie because I can't bring anything for you [right now]. I've got nothing to offer here. So, I'm amazed to get asked about this because everybody knows more about it than I do."

"It could be a one line thing for all I know," he concluded. "But yeah, we're talking about it... there's just nothing to talk about at the moment."

Marvel and Universal famously don't get along very well, and so that's working against us, definitely. But I know for a fact that everyone is holding out hope that one day we can do it. But the nature of the relationship right now, it's a little prohibitive. And I hope that that changes, that changes with regimes, it changes over the course of time. But right now it doesn't look particularly promising."
