Another Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Character Returns for ‘Avengers 4’

Posted 2017/10/01 0 0

Another Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character survived the first round of battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.


Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis in Guardians Vol. 2, confirmed her involvement on Facebook, posting a photo from the set. “#pomantis is back in the makeup trailer! #AvengersInfinityWar,” read the caption.

Mantis turned out to be a fan favorite in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as the unwilling sidekick to Ego and then later comic relief with Drax the Destroyer. Mantis first appeared in the Avengers issue number 112 in June of 1973 and has moved from Marvel to DC and back again. She is known to battles Thanos and has fought next to the Avengers as well as the Guardians in the comics. It's not clear exactly what story line, if any, that Mantis will follow in Infinity War and Avengers 4.

As Digital Spy reports, Avengers 4 is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia.  It was originally announced as being titled Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, but has since had that title removed by Marvel, who now refer to it as Untitled Avengers.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th 2018 in the UK and May 4th 2018 in the US and will feature an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Sean Gunn (Rocket, Kraglin), Vin Diesel (Groot), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L.
