James Gunn Teases Quasar For Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Probably Not

Hasbro recently announced a Quasar Hasbro Marvel Legends action figure!

Quasar was recently announced by Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Comics Editor Bill Rosemann to be a part of the Lego Marvel Avengers video game (now available!)!

And now James Gunn may have teased Quasar for Guardians of the Galaxy 2?!

Coincidence?! Wishful thinking?!

Yeah, probably.

Gunn posted something rather odd on his Facebook page when remarking he participated in a table read of the script with the cast. Gunn said "someone spelled out star's name wrong so I had to correct it for him." Gunn then posted an image of the "corrected" spelling of Chris Pratt's name: "QRIS PRAT."

I've already read more than a few comments online by fans suggesting it's a reference to Quasar, Marvel's Protector of the Universe and weilder of the Quantum-Bands. Obviously the use of the "Q" may suggest Quasar, as well as maybe the "star" mention, as Quasar has a star symbol on his chest (and the inside of his cape is a star field). However, it seems like a stretch as Gunn has previously said he is only using Star-Lord as the only human (and hence why no Richard Rider Nova).

We can suggest another possibility, as there was a second Quasar who was a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book, but we highly doubt Gunn would go there and face the wrath of the rabid Quasar fans. Right, James?!

The good news is that Quasar actually might already be a part of the MCU as his father may have been mentioned in episodes of Agents Of SHIELD; however, we would much rather see Quasar on the big screen. We're definitely not giving up hope especially considering what Disney CEO Bob Iger said about there being thousands of Marvel characters, and that they are never going to stop making Marvel movies (sounds like Quasar's odds just went up)!
