The following contains spoilers from The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday speciala special Marvel presentation now streaming on Disney+.

from Disney+ The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special overall and design wise was a 40 minute candy colored confection. A holiday madness if ever there was one. And yet it delivered a medium-sized reveal that should carry over to at least one future MCU project.

Early in the special Marvel presentation, when Mantis (played by Pom Klementieff) is lobbying to find a very special Christmas present for a melancholic Quill (Chris Pratt), she privately and casually mentions her “secret” to Drax (Dave Bautista). that he and only he knows – that she and Peter share a father in Ego (played in Guards Vol. 2 by Kurt Russel).

Mantis explains why she has been withholding this information until now and tells Drax, “Peter’s father… U.S father… killed his mother and tried to kill him. I don’t want him to be reminded of that every time he sees me.”

‘Your father, Peter, he could be… he could be… he is…my father too,” she revealed. To which a happily surprised Quill said, “Mantis, that’s the best Christmas present I could ever get!”

The Mantis-Quill connection isn’t entirely surprising, if at all. Fans have long speculated about their shared paternity — fueled in part by a flashing and you missed it image from Vol. 2, which portrayed Ego’s myriad hook-ups, as well as a quickly deleted social media post by an actress who said she played “Mantis’ Mom” ​​in a deleted scene from the first sequel.

And indeed, Guards Vol. 2 was where this sibling bond was originally going to be revealed.

“I’ve known this little secret for years, because I knew it when I was shooting Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” Mantis’ portrayer, Pom Klementieff, tells TVLine. “I think it should have been in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and then [franchise writer-director] James Gunn decided to keep it and reveal it later.”

Klementieff went on to say, “It’s nice that it’s here now” because “it creates more layers and a special and beautiful bond between the two characters.”

As individuals, Mantis and Quill “can feel so isolated and gloomy,” Klementieff noted, but moving forward — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will hit theaters on May 5, 2023. – “this creates something very special between the two of them.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special also introduced in the MCU Cosmo the Spacedog (voiced by Borat later movie film‘s Oscar nominee Maria Bakalova)…revealed that Quill & Co. lived in Head of Knowhere… Rocket gifted with Bucky’s vibranium arm (A+ Infinite War callback!)… and unveiled the titular team’s new starship, which is named after (David) Bowie.
