The first concept art for Marvel Studios’ upcoming American superhero film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has debuted.
The concept art gives us a look at Drax, Groot, Yondu, Star-Lord, Rocket, Nebula, Gamora, including the first look at Mantis, check it out below!
The new character joining the Guardians “Mantis,” played by Pom Klementieff.
Executive producer Jonathan Schwartz gives us some details about Mantis:
“She has never really experienced social interaction. Everything she learns about dealing with people, she learns from the Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a very weird group to learn your social intricacies from.”
Schwartz reveals that Mantis isn’t the only new character to debut and we will be treated to a very different Groot in the sequel:
“He doesn’t have the wisdom and experience of that Groot. He’s a younger Groot and a more rambunctious Groot. The question is, is he the same Groot, just smaller? Or is he a different Groot that’s sprung up from the seed of the first Groot?”
The art was drawn by Andy Park and Marvel will hand out the group portrait to fans attending San Diego’s Comic-Con International 2016.
“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage.
Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”
The sequel to 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Written and directed by James Gunn, produced by Kevin Feige.
It stars an ensemble cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Kurt Russell.
