Here are the newcomers:



Klementieff has already been announced as a cast member and it sounds like she is playing a new “Guardian” named Mantis. Awesome.

I just watched THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. a few nights ago and Debicki lit up the screen every moment she was on it. She certainly can and has played incredibly classy and mysterious women. I would love to see her play against type and do something a little more grounded and funny. This would be the best movie to play that sort of role…



I honestly don’t know anything about this actor having never watched THE DROP or THE KNICK… and that is pretty damn exciting. He looks like a pretty big dude, so maybe he is playing a physical foil to Dave Bautista’s Drax.



He’s been rumored to be taking the part of Peter Quill/Star-Lord’s father, but now all that has been confirmed is that the great Kurt Russell is joining the cast of GOTG2. It’s a pretty good bet, at this point, that he is playing Peter Quill’s dad and is an alien of some sort.  This is perfect casting and I can’t wait to see Pratt and Russell share a scene together.

This all sounds terrific!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2 will be coming to get your love on May 5, 2017.
