The following contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has kept us up to date on a regular basis with most of its heroes, it's been three years since we last touched base with The Guardians of the Galaxy. They've been an entirely separate entity up to this point, but we finally got to catch up with some of our favorite movie heroes when the sequel arrived this weekend.

The first movie left us with many questions, the sequel gave us a few answers. Many just filled in questions that we had about the backstory of numerous characters, while others have interesting implications about where the Guardians may go from here. Here are eight things we learned following Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Kurt Russell as Ego

Who Star-Lord's Father Is

Technically, this question was answered prior to the movie itself, as the reveal was in the trailers, but it was still a big question that we had after the first movie that officially saw its answer in the sequel. We knew that Peter Quill's father was somebody from outer space, but now we know that the specific spaceman was Ego, the Living Planet, played by Kurt Russell. It's a significant departure from the answer in the comics, though clearly, the reasons for the change were all based on the rest of the story.
