With the Avengers: Infinity War production finally kicking into action, another actor has been added into the huge ensemble of the third installment.
Pom Klementieff, who we will first see in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 as Mantis, confirmed that she will be returning for the third movie with a photo on Instagram. The actress also shared a shot of her character on the comic book cover for Avengers #123.
“She has never really experienced social interaction,” executive producer Jonathan Schwartz told EW of Mantis. “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.”
Klementieff later teased during San Diego Comic-Con that her character spends much of her time spending it with Starlord’s real father – Ego, the Living Planet, played by Kurt Russell.
