Unquestionably the biggest surprise that Marvel has yet released is Guardians of the Galaxy. The film was heavily based on a series of comics that almost nobody read from 2008-2010, yet somehow became a box-office phenomenon and caused a re-invigoration of the Guardians comic books.

With all of this in mind, fans have been waiting with baited breath for the return of the Guardians, and have been devouring every piece of information they can find. Recently, it has been revealed that the team may be taking on new members for this new film.

The first two rumoured are characters have already appeared in the MCU: Yondu and Nebula; but the third is a brand new character, Mantis. Mantis is an alien with the ability to see into the future and is a regular member of the Guardians, in the comics and is rumoured to be played by actress Pom Klemtieff (pictured below).

I don’t have much to say on Yondu’s inclusion, only that I am happy to see he will be back. However, Nebula’s inclusion could result in some very interesting moments, particularly when she is reunited with Gamora.

All in all, it is good to hear that the film is progressing well, and this announcement does make me excited.. I’m hooked on a feeling… I STAND BY THAT JOKE!!!

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
