It's just an idiom; it doesn't necessarily mean they believe in an actual God. Indeed, we have no real reason to assume they are speaking English in the first place. We know for a fact that the Kree have their own language (as see in Agents of SHIELD S02E11), yet the Kree in the movie speak English. As seen in this related question, the alien races in the ...

You are misinterpreting the line of dialogue. He needs the Fin in order to get access to the arrow. When he's 'aiming' or 'firing' he does it instinctively, not by thinking about what he's doing. It's similar to athletes who access their muscle memory to perform a task.

tl;dr Ego's main objective is to carry out his plan, his "purpose", everything else was secondary and a distraction to him. Ego is the Sailor In the scene just after Gamora has a small argument with Peter, and she storms out, Peter is lying down on the couch and listening to Brandy by Looking Glass Ego enters and exclaims ...

According to Yondu in the movie, he did not know what was happening, not at first. He thought he was bringing these children to their father. He almost certainly knew he was doing something a bit "shady", since he was a criminal being paid a ton of money to transport the kids, but likely assumed their father just wanted to raise them himself. He tells Peter ...

As far as we know, the problem was very much isolated to a small area of one small town in the Midwest. There's no evidence that Ego planted more than one of his seedlings on any given planet - on Earth we only see one. That plant begins to grow and terraform the immediate area, and it spills into the nearby town (where Quill lived, presumably). But Quill ...

It looks like it was just coincidence that Peter was the next kid when Yondu changed his mind, could've been anyone. Yondu didn't even know Quill was the choosen one. In a interview to comicbook.com, Michael Rooker (Yondu) explains a little bit about it: "It was a gig," Rooker said. "I was to pick up the kid and bring him to Ego, right? And I decided not ...

In the early 80s, David Hasselhoff's only major role was Knight Rider, which included a talking car, and Hasselhoff's character being a heroic action-figure type. That show aired until 1986, only two years before Peter was abducted; Hasselhoff's next major role (Baywatch) wouldn't come along for another couple years. So, everything Peter was referencing was ...

If they do believe, that's undetermined, but it doesn't have to imply any belief, at all. "Oh my God" has evolved into a fairly common epithet in modern American English use. When used that way, it does not denote any specific god, or a belief in any god, at all. Atheists and agnostics will use that phrase, or "Jesus Christ," or "Holy cow," or even more ...

Ego isn't omniscient...he has limitations. Mantis says that it will take Ego time to realise there are; then when he does find them he's put to sleep for a while and then there's a whole "space battle" going on inside the planet causing immense damage. He's also trying to control Peter at the same time while the other Guardians are also running around ...

Director gave the answer himself, from comicbook.com “There was actually a scene that we cut from the movie where big Groot was dancing to 'Livin’ Thing' by ELO,” said Gunn. “And it wasn’t such an elaborate dance. It was more that he was just moving up and down like this, and Drax was dismissive and gave him this look like he was a loser when he ...

Well, the Fantastic Four rights aren't reverting to Marvel, so I'd say the answer is no. As recently as last November Marvel President Kevin Feige called the idea of getting the F4 rights back "an impossibility at this juncture". As far as I know, nothing has changed on that front in the past 6 months. As far as Lee's cameo, it's possible that he was a Fed-...

In the comics he was from earth colony Centauri IV and refereed as Centaurian. But in MCU there is no mention of earth's colony on other planet yet. And from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Episode 1.15: Yes Men we know Centaurians do exists in MCU Coulson: "You've visited other realms, seen different species, aliens. Have you ever encountered any that were ...

If we are going by Ego's own (admittedly unreliable) history of himself, he chose a humanoid form before finding humans. In his diorama we seem him replete in a red jacket and jeans with long hair at this time. This would indicate he looks like Kurt Russell and Kurt Russell does not exist in the MCU. By using clues and indications found later in the movie (...

There were only two prominent places I can briefly remember: One with two giant creatures fighting Which are apparently belongs to Kronans race which are going to part of upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok and seems like a nod to it. Also covered in my other answer to a related question. Second which you mentioned in question itself, Stan Lee talking to ...

The director, James Gunn, has confirmed that the sequel takes place 2 months after the original movie....so 2014 which apparently dates it before Civil War (but see below). However, we don't know the dates of the other MCU movies. Kevin Feige to Comicbook.com Yeah, knowing that outside of the Guardians franchise, we don't necessarily always date the ...

What was the argument about? Argument was about Yandu breaking the Ravagers code in past. Here is the full conversation: Yondu: Are you gonna listen to what I got to say? Stakar Ogord: I don't got to listen to nothing, you betrayed the code! > Ravagers don't deal in kids! Yondu: I told you before, I didn't know what was going on! Stakar Ogord: You ...

James Gunn has gone on record to state 'only a couple of months': How long after Vol. 1 does Vol. 2 take place? Around a couple of months.- A couple of months EARTH time or, maybe it's, like, years, out in space because of science fiction? Like a couple of months Guardians-time. Like, if Peter Quill gets a haircut once a month, he'd have two ...

Your description only matches with this scene: Where two rock like creatures are fighting. And they match with marvel comics race Kronans. And as mentioned by phantom42 in comment, Thanos is not in the film: James Gunn: It's about two sisters. It's not about the sisters and their father. It's about two sisters, and what were the sisters' problems with ...

I came to believe that Yondu slowly realized it over time, with each delivery becoming more and more suspicious, especially when he didn't see the previous kids hanging around when he delivered the newest kid. He'd delivered a bunch of kids, they should be out and about somewhere. Peter ended up being the last straw, I believe, because Yondu felt a bond ...

They all said, "I Am Groot". Because "I am Groot" means anything Groot wants it to mean. Including that person's name. This is the same as many movies or shows that have jokes in their credits. Like the Simpson's Little Tree House of Horror episodes where all the names are given funny horror themes or middle names.

At the end of the movie, as the core of the planet is destroyed, Ego claims that this will prevent Peter from using his abilities, and indicates that it will make him "just like everyone else". We can also see Peter's abilities fade. Ego: "Listen to me! You are a god! If you kill me, you'll be just like everybody else!" Peter: "What'...

Ego was so smitten with Meredith that he himself admits that if he had gone back to Earth once more he would never have left. Simply put, had Meredith kept living, Ego would have given up his plan to reshape the Universe, which he couldn't allow, as it was the only thing that gave him purpose. Furthermore, by killing her, he could take Peter away without ...

James Gunn admitted his mistake http://in.ign.com/guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-2-1/108210/news/james-gunn-acknowledges-small-guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-2 And yes, I know I made a mistake. People have written and asked me, and I'll own up to my mistake because Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 theoretically happens in 2014 which is before [Captain ...

The title is just generic and obvioulsy ties directly to the comic. It doesn't have to refer to a specific galaxy but it scans slightly better than "Guardians of the Galaxies". For an official word... In fact GotG is set in the Andromeda galaxy as indicated by James Gunn in this Q&A over on our sister site Science Fiction & Fantasy Here's ...

Yondu had his standard one that was destroyed by Nebula, and the experimental one that was burned with his body. So we know for a fact that Yondu has at least two, and possibly more that he's played with or hidden as emergency backups. There are many different ways Kraglin could have gotten ahold of one of these. Here are two that I think are very highly ...

Groot always freezes because he knows Drax disapproves of it. This also happens at the start of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Drax even explains later that he was attracted to his wife because she stood still and did not dance.

Ego (the concept) is defined as "a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance." Ego (the planet/person/god), is the literal depiction of the concept of Ego. So Ego's motivation is to grow his Ego (sense of self importance), by becoming everything in the universe. Of-course he doesn't have the power to do this on his own.

It is my assumption that the Watchers know all and see all whether it has happened yet or not. The Watchers are an integral part of the Marvel Comic stories call What If?. In the What If? Comic books the Watcher talks about being everywhere and nowhere. He tells the stories that will , can and might happen if certain events take place in a particular order. ...

The hint is that Stan Lee is something along the lines of a nanny cam for the Watchers. And Guardians 2 is not the first movie to break the timeline as released theory.

Probably for the same reason that you would not be able to feel internal parasites within your own body. There simply may not be nerves or sensory organs in or around the area where Baby Groot is.
