    Saw it a second time around today and still didn't catch where the cocoon was in the Collector's museum. Ugh.

    Huh, I hadn't seen that. Well if not J'Son, the only character that makes much sense to me would be Adam Warlock. Especially since his mother described him as "an angel made of pure light."

    It seems kinda strange for it to be Adam Warlock.

    If the Ravagers were not paid to bring Starlord to his dad who were they working for? Also it seems strange to have Adams cocoon as an easter egg without it having no movie emphasis at all on the cocoon. Maybe a lingering shot at least so that later Peter remembers the cocoon in the collection.

    The only thing I get from Gunns interview is that the character is tied pretty closely to Yondu.

    If not Warlock then I'm thinking a close friend or former teammate of Yondu's . So iI'm thinking a contemporary of his from the originals.

    I'd be fine with it being Warlock. There's no telling what happened in the 30 something years that happened between Quill being conceived and Warlock ending up in the Collector's vault.

    Does beg the question of why Warlock would have had a bounty on him though.

    Oh I'd LOVE if it was Warlock. Just seems weird based off the info in the movie.

    I don't think it's Warlock, because Yondu's lieutenant said that he was supposed to deliver Quill to his father but they did not. If he was in a cocoon, then it'd make no sense what that guy said.

    Yup, I think we can officially rule out Warlock. Warlock hiring the Ravagers to go get Quill does not make sense. Doubly so if Warlock is currently regenerating in the cocoon.

    Warlock could have gone into the cocoon at any point in the past 28 years though

    I'll admit that that's certainly a possibility, but it just looks wrong to me from every angle. So, I'll amend my position on the probability of Warlock being Peter Quill's father to "slim to none".

    So, if Warlock is indeed Peter's father, the following events must have taken place. Warlock goes to Earth, impregnates Meredith and abandons her and her unborn son. A few years later he commissions the Ravagers (who consider Warlock a "jackass") to find and bring him Peter. But soon after that he goes into a cocoon, and is presumably undergoing some metamorphosis process. And then in the meantime, one Mr. Tivan snatches up the cocoon in which Warlock is laying dormant...

    I dunno, to me, none of the above fits at all.

    Maybe Youndu & co did try & return Peter ? But since Warlock never showed up to meet them. At the place they were supposed to meet. They just figured he was a jack ass & they got stuck with Peter

    It would be really weird for Adam to be Peter's dad, I'm all for a few changes from time to time, but this would really violate the canon established in DnA.

    If Marvel Studios is willing to change the Avengers canon what makes you think they'd hesitate to change Quill's and Warlock's?

    The wording Yondu used throughout the movie made it seem as if they just decided to keep Quill, not that they tried to deliver him. Honestly we could rationalize any cosmic hero to be Quills dad I just think Adam Warlock makes less sense then others given the situation.

    I was really looking forward to Peter finding out he is an heir to the throne of a galactic empire and then rejecting it and all the trouble that comes from it. Oh well, I have faith in Marvel, Feige, Gunn and Whedon so I'll just go with the flow
