Last month, “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” writer/director James Gunn took to social media to dispel some rumors. No, Hulk would not be appearing. Yes, Peter Quill would remain the sole Earthling character. But Gunn also stoked the flames around another rumor…that another woman would be joining the Guardians on their sophomore outing.
Now that rumor has more credence with the casting of relative newcomer Pom Klementieff. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel conducted an exhaustive search before selecting Klementieff. THR also says actresses had to do several rounds of “chemistry reads” though that doesn”t necessarily mean she”s a love interest.
But it does raise the question: what character IS Klementieff playing. There are a few likely candidates. HitFix Harpy rounded-up four of the most likely denizens of the galaxy that Gunn could have in mind.
