We’re only mere days away from San Diego Comic-Con where those in Hall H on Saturday will get their first look at footage from the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 but you don’t have to wait until then to get a first look at the film. Entertainment Weekly has revealed the the very first piece of concept art from the James Gunn directed film which you’ll be able to pick up from Marvel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
This concept art by Andy Park features our first look at the team’s new line-up in the sequel as well as our very first look at the new character ‘Mantis’ who will be played by Pom Klementieff. Executive producer Jonathan Schwartz had the following to say about the new character joining the team.
“She has never really experienced social interaction. 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.”
Check out the new concept art below and be sure to let us know what you think about it in the comments section afterwards.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
