Kurt Russell Has Wrapped his "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" Scenes

Though it hasn't yet been officially confirmed that Kurt Russell is playing Star Lord's father in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," it's a 100% certainty that the actor has an important part in the Marvel Studios sequel. In fact, director James Gunn has revealed that filming on the veteran actor's scenes is finished.

Both Gunn and Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt, took to social media to announce that filming has wrapped on Russell's scenes for the movie, with both the director and star getting somewhat emotional over saying goodbye.

And that's a wrap on Kurt Russell on #GOTGVol2. A true talent and pleasure in every way. I will admit to a small tear in my eye.

Gunn also took to his Facebook page to expand upon his thoughts about working with Russell.

Russell's casting in the space-faring sequel was first rumored in late-2015, and even then, he was said to be up for the role of Peter Quill's mysterious, alien father. When Russell's casting was officially announced by Marvel in February, the actor's role remained undisclosed.

While Russell as Quill/Star Lord's father is a near lock, exactly who his character is beyond that remains a closely-guarded secret. Gunn has said that it follows a different path than the comics, where J'Son, leader of the Spartoi Empire, is Quill's father. A rumor surfaced in November 2015 that Mar-Vell, the Kree superhero known as Captain Marvel, would be revealed as Star Lord's dad, but Gunn quickly debunked the report, calling it "completely false."

Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" opens on May 5, 2017.
