Karen Gillan as Nebula

While Zoe Saldana’s Gamora appears to be missing from the Guardians crew, he sister Nebula will be present. The Scottish actress broke out among genre fans in her four-year run as Amy Pond, companion to Matt Smith’s Doctor Who. In addition to those roles, Gillan co-starred with John Cho in the well-received sitcom Selfie and in the Mike Flanagan horror film Oculus. Outside of her Marvel work, Gillan’s biggest success has come playing one of the avatars in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and its sequel The Next Level.

Gillan beat her Love and Thunder co-stars to cinemas this year by appearing in Dual, which released on April 15.

Pom Klementieff as Mantis

The newest member of the Guardians had limited screentime with Thor in Infinity War, so hopefully we’ll get to see more of them together in Love and Thunder. The French actress made her American debut in Spike Lee’s poorly-regarded remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy in 2013. Since joining the MCU in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Klementieff has appeared in James Gunn’s superhero follow-up, The Suicide Squad, as well as Uncut Gems and The Addams Family.

Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer

While Drax only spent a few minutes with Thor in Endgame, he made the most of it, so here’s hoping he’ll get more chances to dunk on Quill while praising the God of Thunder. The breakout actor of the Guardians films, Bautista was formerly best known as a wrestler in the WWE. After his turn as Drax, Bautista showed more comic timing and surprising depth in movies such as Blade Runner 2049, My Spy, and Dune. In addition to the next Guardians film, Bautista can also be seen reprising his role as the Beast Rabban in the highly anticipated Dune: Part Two

Vin Diesel as Groot

As the teenage “Tree,” Groot played a crucial role in helping Thor fight Thanos in Infinity War, even becoming the handle for his ax Stormbreaker. While we don’t know what Groot will do with Thor in Love and Thunder, we can probably guess what he’ll say. In his performance as Groot, Vin Diesel continues a tradition of excellent voice acting that began with Brad Bird’s animated feature The Iron Giant. Diesel also found more success as Groot than he did attempting to launch a new cinematic universe in 2020’s Bloodshot, based on the Valiant Comics superhero. But everybody knows that superheroes are only secondary to Diesel’s true franchise loves, the Riddick series that began with Pitch Dark, and the Fast and Furious films, which saw its ninth entry last year.

Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon

Along with Groot, Rocket (aka “rabbit”) accompanied Thor not only to the weapon-making planet Nidavellir, but also to Asgard of the past, retrieving the Reality Stone while Frigga comforted her son. Even if Thor appears to no longer have use for the fake eye Rocket secured for him, it’s clear that the two have a bond greater than any of the other Guardians.
