Unused ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Concept Art Reveals a Much Different Mantis

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced Mantis to the world, and the character became a fan favorite and played a huge role in Avengers: Infinity War.

But the unassuming antennae’d alien almost looked completely different from her final appearance in the Guardians movie, according to a new round of concept art from Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development Andy Park.

I got called out by @osiristheory to show one of my favorite UNUSED concept art pieces… hmm, tough one. This was actually the APPROVED design of Mantis for #GuardiansoftheGalaxy Vol.2 but as it happens sometimes it changed during the practical FX stage. So thus, UNUSED 🙂 pic.twitter.com/2aHIPqKUol

Actress Pom Klementieff nearly had a drastically different look in the MCU, and it was one signed off by everyone at Marvel Studios. But the look for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actually works for her character.
