    While Klementieff has carved a niche for herself within the MCU, her recent comments hint at a potential foray into uncharted territory. During a convention appearance, Klementieff coyly admitted to having discussions with James Gunn, the director behind both the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films and the upcoming DCU reboot. 

    Yes, we’ve been talking about one specific character, but I can’t talk about that right now,” she revealed, leaving fans buzzing with anticipation. Gunn, known for his irreverent humor and knack for crafting compelling characters, has openly discussed his desire to work with his former MCU collaborators in the DCU. With Klementieff’s name now in the mix, the possibilities seem endless. 

    Additionally, her portrayal of Mantis, the empathic Celestial Madonna with a knack for martial arts, has been a scene-stealer in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Debuting in 2017’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ Klementieff brought a blend of humor, innocence, and surprising strength to the character.  

    Moreover, her deadpan delivery of quirky lines and her wholesome friendship with Drax the Destroyer have become fan favorites. As the Guardians of the Galaxy soared to box office success, Pom rose alongside them, solidifying her place within the MCU.
