Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is going to have a presence at San Diego Comic Con but James Gunn has released some concept art before the convention has started. The new artwork, released to Entertainment Weekly by artist Andy Park, shows the entire team including our first look at Mantis played by actress Pom Klementieff. “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.”
Schwartz also teased a different Groot from the one we saw in the first movie. “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?”
What do you think of this concept art and are you looking forward to more reveals from Marvel’s Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic Con? Let us know in the comments
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is directed by James Gunn and comes out Mary 5, 2017.
