Director James Gunn continued his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 storyboard teases via Facebook today, with what looks to be the new crew member Mantis.
In the latest What We Shot Wednesday, Gunn references Mantis, featured in the middle, along with two other characters found on either side. Here is his full description.
"It's already #WhatWeShotWednesday. We've had an amazing week on #GotGVol2 - in fact I'd say the past two weeks may have been some of the most fruitful of my life. @pomin8r and Kurt Russell have been bringing it hard, and our DP Henry Braham has been killing it as well. It's wonderful having a great cast and crew, all one hundred percent committed to the cause. Today we shot this little piece. A certain new character may be somewhat obvious, the others not quite so much (and, I should add, please don't mistake my storyboard character shorthand for actual character design - another character in the film is presented throughout with a stovetop hat just so I know who he is!)."
Aside from his love of stovetop hats, it is nice to know they are already filming scenes with Mantis, a character I grew fond of during the Abnett and Lanning run on the comics, where she became an indispensable member of the team.
Mantis will maker her debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hits theatres on May 5th, 2017.
