Hey Marvel fans, we got something really cool for you all to check out! Marvel has released the first official concept art from James Gunn's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The art below features Starlord, Yondo, Nebula, Gamora, Groot, and Drax. But the coolest thing about this new concept art is the inclusion of our first look at the character known as Mantis played by Pom Klementieff.
Executive producer Jonathan Schwartz provided a few details as to what fans can expect from Mantis as she joins the group of heroic outlaws.
“She has never really experienced social interaction," Schwartz told Entertainment Weekly. "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.”
Check out the cool concept art below and then sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the upcoming sequel.
