Arguably one of the best parts of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was Kurt Russel’s portrayal of Ego the Living Planet. It seems like Russel wasn’t the only one considered for the role, a recently surfaced concept art shows Matthew McConaughey as Peter Quill’s father.
Thanks to a Reddit user(Via MCUExchange), we now have an image of how McConaughey would have looked like as Ego.
The image is a bit blurry but it’s obvious that Matthew is the one in the art. The design is pretty different from what we got in the finished product and I honestly think they went the right route with Kurt Russel. The art shows a more sleek and modern design but I think the more rugged, older look of Russel’s Ego fit the film better.
