It turns Marvel and Fox made a character trade. Marvel let Fox use Negasonic Teenage Warhead for Deadpool and Fox let Marvel use Ego the Living Planet for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

>Since this story broke, director James Gunn has taken to his official Facebook page to talk even more about the behind-the-scenes maneuvering, saying:

>“When I first pitched Ego as Quill’s father, I THOUGHT we owned the character. After I had worked out a very elaborate story with Ego the Living Planet as a very important part of the Marvel cosmic universe, I learned that we actually didn’t own the character. I had no back up plan, and it would be nearly impossible to just drop another character in. Thank God Fox came to us and wanted to make a trade…”

I would have preferred if Marvel got Galactus and Silver Surfer but whatever.
