. The character in question is the leader of the Guardians, Starlord Peter Quill, who is the offspring of a human mother and an alien father. James Gunn

movie a bit more cloudy. At any rate, Cosmic Book News has gotten hold of a list of the characters set to appear in the Justice League
movie, complete with character descriptions.
