Space battles and monsters and Vin Diesel on a bunch of helium, oh my!
Our wise cracking, classic rock obsessed heroes battle a gross looking abilisk and try very hard not to press buttons in the newest Guardians Vol 2 trailer…
We get our first look at Pom Klementieff as Mantis, who made her character debut in The Avengers in the early 1970s. Along with being a marital arts badass she has psychic empathy and a particular connection with plants. In the GotG comics she’s green.
I think we all know who the star of this movie is, though. It’s not Star Lord.
James Gunn revealed to Collider at SDCC: “I was writing the treatment for the script, I already knew who Quill’s father was at that time, and to be completely honest – and I’ve never said this to anybody – I was going to make Groot a grown Groot. And I thought, well, wait a second. Baby Groot offers a whole new way of looking at the movie and a new way to go into it. It’s about a family, and how they are all around this younger character is going to make a big difference, and suddenly everything opened up for me”.
I think he made the right choice.
