Find out What To Expect From Guardians 2 when it comes to Nebula, Groot, Yondu + Mantis…
1 – Michael Rooker’s Yondu was one of Guardians of the Galaxy’s highlights back in 2014. As the leader of the Ravagers, he proved to not only be an effective leader, but also funny at certain points. Three years after parting amicably with his former protege, Peter Quill, Yondu is returning to the big screen next year in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Cinema Blend’s own Eric Eisenberg snapped this picture of Yondu’s portrait being displayed at San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel has since disclosed that the painting will be seen inside Yondu’s ship, the Eclector, during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
2 – As for Nebula, one of the biggest questions raised by the film is whether or not Karen Gillan’s Nebula would return to seek vengeance against her adopted sister Gamora (Zoe Saldana).
3 – Zoe Saldana opened up to IGN, regarding the return of Nebula and explained what we can expect from the villainess in the highly anticipated sequel. She said:
You’ll begin to get a glimpse of how terrible life must have been like to grow up with a crazy stepfather through Nebula. Nebula is still in that teen-y, fucking hateful shit. She’s just resentful and bitter.
What’s up with Groot?
This sets up some different possibilities for the future as well. If this Groot is actually a different character then that means after Groot has grown back to his previous self, however long that takes, we may still be in for a very different Guardian. We may never see the Groot from the first Guardians of the Galaxy again. This is potentially very good news for Vin Diesel, as it will require him to record entirely new inflections on the words “I am Groot.”
by the end of the film he had sacrificed himself to save his friends. While he was able to survive, it’s possible that the new “baby Groot” that we saw at the end of the movie isn’t simply a different form, but actually a different character. Executive Producer Jonathan Schwartz told Entertainment Weekly, that this new Groot will act very differently in the new movie.
“He doesn’t have the wisdom and experience of that Groot. He’s a younger Groot and a more rambunctious Groot. The question is, is he the same Groot, just smaller? Or is he a different Groot that’s sprung up from the seed of the first Groot?”
4 – Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will gain a new member named Mantis!
While we don’t know much about Mantis, we’ve been given our first peek via some concept art and a little discussion about her personality. If you thought that the combination of personalities was strange before, wait until Mantis joins the team, because she’s never even had to deal with other people before.
