It's almost a shame they used him the way they did. In the comics he's not a Celestial, nor is he Star Lord's father. He's just a living planet dude that features heavily in the early Thor stuff.
He could have been an awesome, if not ridiculous, addition to Thor 4. Or a major player in another MCU movie.
Meanwhile they could have just used Quill's father from the comics and made him a god if they wanted to. It would've made little difference as he only takes his planet form for a few seconds in the movie.

As a huge Star Trek fan, Ego reminded me immensely of the God-like being from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. That whole final act of Guardians 2 was basically Star Trek V done the right way. I absolutely loved the concept and execution. Ego proved to be a really fantastic villain IMO. Easily one of the best in the MCU.
Never heard of him before Guardians 2 but he was used brilliantly in that movie, so I'm happy with it.
I'm not saying the GotG version wasn't good. I agree that he was... But they could have literally done the same thing with him being the powerful alien that he is in the comics and not Ego the Living Planet, which he only appears as for a total of one minute. Then the actual Ego could have been a totally sick character in a Thor or F4 movie!
We're caught in a TRAP. I can't turn back. Because I love you too much, baby!
