Everyone is still talking about Sony Pictures' shocking decision to cancel the release of The Interview, one day after a hacker group threatened a 9/11 style attack on movie theaters playing the comedy. Several celebrities and filmmakers have already expressed their opinions on the matter through their Twitter pages, blasting Sony for caving to these hackers' threats. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, however, managed to find a bit of humor in this whole game-changing ordeal.
As you likely know, the filmmaker is currently working on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which will address one of the big mysteries from this summer's blockbuster: who is the father of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt)? The director already revealed in August that Peter Quill's father will not be the same as in the Marvel comics, J'son of Spartax, but that's about all we know so far. Just a few hours after Sony's decision, James Gunn eliminated yet another possibility for Star-Lord's dad, literally crossing North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un off the list.
The filmmaker's mock list includes a number of humorous possibilities including Galactus, a character from the Fantastic Four comics who eats planets, J'son, who really should be crossed off the list as well, given his earlier revelations, and Martinex, a character from the Guardians of the Galaxy comics. The list also includes "Tony Stark from the future," Howard the Duck, who had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man's Ben Parker, Luke Skywalker and even Kevin Bacon. Take a look at the filmmaker's list below.
