Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-2-Movie-Logo-Official

Deadline has revealed that Pom Klementieff’s secret role in GOTG2 is none other than Mantis.

According to her Wikipedia page, she is “the half-Vietnamese, half-German daughter of Gustav Brandt—Libra—and was born in Huế, Vietnam. In her childhood, her father leaves her in Vietnam at the Temple of the alien Priests of Pama, a sect of the Kree. The Kree believe she might become the Celestial Madonna and mate with the eldest Cotati on Earth to become the mother of the Celestial Messiah, “the most important being in the universe.””

I’m sure that her role and species will most likely be tweaked for the new installment, but it’s exciting that the Guardians will be receiving another member and a female one at that!

I’m extremely curious to see how this character plays into their nicely established chemistry and dovetails with the emerging threat of Thanos!
