The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast will also feature the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, the unlikely heroes who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. The group will be joined in the film by French actress Pom Klementieff who could be playing the character Mantis.

James Gunn is back as director and writer for the sequel, which is expected to start shooting in early 2016 for a May 5, 2017 release date.

Guardians of the Galaxy opened in theaters on August 1, 2014 and earned an impressive $774 million at the worldwide box office.
