Fans Campaign James Gunn For Al Pacino As Ego The Living Planet In Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Al Pacino may be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and a recent rumor stated Ego The Living Planet may be a villain.

How about Al Pacino providing the voice of Ego?

That’s what a group of fans came up with on Twitter as they tweeted Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director James Gunn with the hashtag: #PacinoTheLivingPlanet.

“Hi @JamesGunn, I’m campaigning 4 Pacino as Ego in #GotG2 with his famous line “HOO-AH… SPACE!” We mean you no harm,” one fan tweeted.

James Gunn seemed to enjoy the thought of Al Pacino as Ego as he replied back:

“Haha. What a feed to wake up to- @wikipediabrown @mrsundaymovies -tho I’d be more assured of sincerity if folks knew how to spell Pacino!”

So is Al Pacino as Ego the Living Planet a possibility? Doesn’t sound like it if the following tweet from Gunn is anything to go by.

“And so sad to disappoint as your enthusiasm is invigorating but my film has long been written and essentially cast,” Gunn said.

So who could Al Pacino be playing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 if he has a role? The answer is pretty obvious if you are a fan of the comics. We already know Benicio Del Toro will not be returning as The Collector (Del Toro is the rumored villain for Star Wars: Episode VIII), so who better to replace The Collector than his cosmic brother, The Grandmaster?! 

Al Pacino previously stated he was interested in appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and has even participated in talks with Marvel. Gunn has also said he would like to work with Pacino.

Grandmaster sounds like a good choice to us.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has a May 5, 2017 release.

Ego The Living Planet Rumored Villain For Guardians of the Galaxy 2

So following Ronan, who might the Guardians of the Galaxy take on next?

How about Ego The Living Planet?

Geek.com is stating sources closed to production have stated Ego is set to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

We can even speculate the use of Ego might even mean The Stranger, as The Stranger created Ego (a recent ret-con).

I’ve never been a big fan of Ego, but at least Guardians of the Galaxy 2 won’t end in a dance off this time. Right, bro?

Ego did appear in issues of Abnett and Lanning’s Nova when the Worldmind gave Ego the Nova Force.

The Stranger is a pretty cool character as I first came upon him in the pages of Quasar, which even featured a Rocket Raccoon cameo (Quasar #15, I believe).

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hits May 5, 2017.
