Empire has revealed a fantastic piece of concept art for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, featuring Star Lord, Gamora, Rocket Racoon, baby Groot and Drax battling a toothsome giant space beastie. Notably there’s no Mantis so perhaps this set piece is from the start of the film, maybe even the opening sequence? Click on the image for a larger version.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 sees the return of Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Parks And Recreation) as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (SPECTRE, The Man With The Iron Fists) as Drax, Vin Diesel (xXx, Furious 7) as the voice of baby Groot; Bradley Cooper (Joy, American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Michael Rooker (Slither, Jumper) as Yondu, Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, The Big Short) as Nebula. Joining them this time are Pom Klementieff (Oldboy) as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Chris Sullivan (The Knick, The Drop) and Kurt Russell (The Thing, Escape From New York) as Ego, the Living Planet, who also happens to be Star-Lord’s dad in a plot twist we can’t wait to see explained.
