While speaking with Complex, writer and director James Gunn teased Star-Lord's father and his ability to create avatars of himself since he is in fact a giant living planet.
"Ego is a living planet who is able to manifest himself in different ways he's been alone for millions of years and he's learned how to control the molecules around him in such a way as to create avatars of themselves, such as Kurt Russell. I think Ego was a very lonely character out there by himself and went off in search of love and perhaps found it in Quill's mother."
