Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special BTS by James Gunn

James Gunn (The Suicide Squad) has acknowledged his adoration for Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Infinity War) and her portrayal of Mantis in the new Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special as the accolades for the most recent MCU film keep pouring in.

In a tweet, Gunn thanks fans for their positive initial reactions to the upcoming Guardians movie and draws attention to any that praise Klementieff’s depiction of Mantis. In a behind-the-scenes picture, Gunn shared, Mantis may be seen sporting Christmas trees on her antennas. Drax, played by Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead), may be seen in the distance. Mantis has now appeared in numerous MCU movies, but Gunn views this as her formal film premiere.
“I’m especially appreciative of the glowing reviews of Pom Klementieff’s portrayal of Mantis. This is Mantis’ real MCU premiere as her fully fledged self, emerging from Ego’s shadow and the backdrop. Tweets from Gunn

In 2017, Mantis made her film debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where she was introduced as the servant of the antagonist Ego (Kurt Russell). She later joined the Guardians after breaking free of his influence, and they have since fought the Avengers countless times.

With the forthcoming Christmas special from writer-director Gunn, Marvel’s Phase 4 is anticipated to come to an end. The Guardians are returning in their first standalone movie since 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was another popular adventure for the misfit group. Even though this is the first Guardians film since that time, they have already featured in a number of MCU movies, including Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame as well as Thor: Love and Thunder in 2022.

In the new movie, which acts as a prequel to the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Drax and Mantis travel together in order to raise their leader, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). Gamora, Peter’s partner and teammate, is absent after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame (Zoe Saldana). As a result, Drax and Mantis decide to send Kevin Bacon from Tremors, who plays a more heightened version of himself in the special, as a Christmas gift. As a result, the story is funny and endearing and can stand alone in the MCU without having to address the larger, more pressing issues that are currently affecting Marvel’s characters.
