Set pics previously revealed James Gunn's buddy Nathan Fillion on movie posters as Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man.

Now a new nugget of info may shed light on why that Earth scene is featured in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Previously it was said Aaron Schwartz is playing a young J'son (Star-Lord's father in the comics), but now IMDb has been updated stating Schwarz is actually playing a young Ego, which makes sense as in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Ego The Living Planet is Star-Lord's father, played by Kurt Russell.

It's possible the Wonder Man scene may be a flashback scene in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 where the young EGO and Star-Lord's mother go on a date at the movie theater where the young Ego is attacked.

The Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie theater scene also features Easter Eggs for Jack Kirby, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" has a May 5, 2017 release starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.


Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" continues the team's adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.
