Guardians Of The Galaxy: Volume 2 Meet The Mantis Alien

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Meet new alien Mantis in sequel concept art


In this concept art for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, you can see all
your favorites: Drax, Groot, Yondu, Star-Lord, Rocket, Nebula, and Gamora. But wait!
Who’s that alien lady with the antennae?

The answer is a brand-new character named Mantis, an acquaintance of the Guardians
played by actress Pom Klementieff (Spike Lee’s Oldboy). “She has never really
experienced social interaction,” says executive producer Jonathan Schwartz.
“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.”

Mantis may not be the only new character, according to Schwartz, who says audiences
will be treated to a very different Groot from the stoic man-tree of the original
2014 film. “He doesn’t have the wisdom and experience of that Groot,” Schwartz says.
“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?”

We’ll leaf it at that for now, except to say that Marvel will release the group
portrait, drawn by Andy Park, as a special treat for fans attending San Diego’s
Comic-Con International, which runs July 21-24.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is slated to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
