A key GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 role has just been cast and, in keeping with Marvel tradition, it's all being kept very hush hush. THR reports that Pom Klementieff (OLDBOY) has nabbed a role in James Gunn's sequel after a wide search for a mystery role which reportedly called for an Asian actress. Klementieff did several rounds of chemistry reads but at the moment, we haven't the foggiest as to who she may be playing in the sequel. The actress has primarily acted in French films but she made her Hollywood debut in Spike Lee's OLDBOY remake as Haeng-Bok, the bodyguard of Sharlto Copley's character.

Variety's report on this news added one more interesting GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 tidbit; apparently both Marvel and James Gunn wanted Matthew McConaughey for the role of the villain, but before you start celebrating the Marvel McConaissance, you should know that the actor recently passed on the role. If Marvel and Gunn were pursuing McConaughey, it seems to suggest that the GUARDIANS VOL. 2 villain may be quite a bit different from what we've seen before. I was already imagining Star-Lord struggling to understand why the villain with the whispery Texas drawl keeps taking his shirt off. Variety's sources say that a decision on the casting of the villain should come within the next few weeks as GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is set to begin production in early 2016.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 opens on May 5, 2017.

Any guesses on the identity of the mystery role Pom Klementieff just scored? And while we're at it, suggest a Marvel role which would be a good fit for Matthew McConaughey.

I'm guessing she's gonna play the role of either Mantis or Moondragon. Most likely Mantis.

Exciting news. Perhaps she'll be apart of an new alien race that we haven't seen yet that the Guardians run into this time around. Or maybe another warrior who gives Gamora a run for her money in terms of fighting and being badass.

And I just don't see McConaughey as a Marvel guy to be honest. I see him more of a DC guy, and if I had to choose a role for him in in the DCCU, it would be Harvey Dent/Two-Face. But I will admit that if McConaughey had accept the role of the villain, I would be

Agreed, I think his style would make him more of a DC guy. Two-Face is a good call too. I could also see him being an older Oliver Queen too, given he and Bruce Wayne were about the same age in The Dark Knight Returns comic...

Adding to that, I wonder if turning down the role might mean he's already in some sort of advanced negotiations over at DC/Vertigo?

She'd be a good fit for Mantis. I think Gunn said he'd only adding one new Guardian, so if it IS Mantis they'll probably make some drastic aesthetic changes so that there aren't two solid green chicks running around, they'll want them to be a bit different. As for McConaughey, I think he would have been a great Adam Warlock or J'Son of Spartax. I'm thinking Guardians 2 is going to make Adam Warlock the real identity of Peter Quill's father. I think I remember Gunn saying something about J'Son

I think I remember Gunn saying something about J'Son not being his dad in the MCU, so I'm assuming it's gonna be a new origin and probably changed to Warlock. I REALLY wish they were keeping the Spartax storyline and origin, though. Would be entertaining as hell to watch.
