Granted, it’s still a long way away (2017 long way, to be precise), but work is already commencing on Guardians Of The Galaxy: Volume 2, the follow-up to Marvel’s risky – but ultimately massively successful – mega hit. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the first new cast member has been confirmed: Oldboy (the Spike Lee one; not Park-chan Wook’s classic original_ actress Pom Klementieff.
Typically, however, Marvel are remaining tight-lipped regarding exactly what her role entails. She did a fair bit of fighting in Oldboy, so maybe she’ll be another kick-ass alien in the mould of Karen Gillan’s Nebula? Regardless, we’re sure we’ll hear more casting announcements in the coming months.
James Gunn is returning to write and direct, along with original cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker.
Guardians Of The Galaxy: Volume 2 will be released in cinemas on 28 April 2017. You can find out more about the characters and the comics that inspired them by picking up the latest edition of 100 All-Time Greatest Comics.
