It was recently announced that relative newcomer Pom Klementieff has joined the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but something that wasn’t announced was who she will be playing. Well, here at Third Act we don’t like waiting, so we’ve put together a list of characters we think she could be playing. Apparently the casting call was specifically looking for an Asian actress, however that could simply be the film makers trying to make the cast more diverse, so while it will be considered, it’s not a deciding factor as far as we’re concerned.
Even though she has a ridiculous name, Moondragon is a character with a decent sized fan base. She’s also a human character, and perhaps most importantly, she is the daughter of Drax the Destroyer. Sort of. It’s complicated, but she seems like a fairly solid bet.
Mantis is a human character who is half Vietnamese, so seems to fit the bill. She at one point lived in Knowhere, a location seen in the first Guardians, and is a much calmer, more sane character than the rest of the group, so she could adda different and funny dynamic to the team.
Phyla-Vell is the real name of Quasar (well, one of a few characters that have been called Quasar), and was sort of once Captain Marvel (it’s complicated…) She’s previously been affiliated with the Guradians, and was even their leader at one point.
Nikki was part of the original Guardians team, which was very different to the ones seen in the movie. The reason we might see her turn up, however, is that Yondu was another member of that team (although he was nothing like the Yondu in the film), so we know those characters aren’t completely off the table.
This is by far the least likely, but there is one reason this might happen. We know Marvel Studios are starting to introduce new characters in films based around more established characters, and with Guardians of the Galaxy exceeding all expectations, why would they not be considered a good place to introduce Captain Marvel before she gets her own film?
