Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy star Pom Klementieff, who portrays the character Mantis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has joined the cast of Mission: Impossible 7 & 8.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Fallout director Christopher MacQuarrie has revealed on Instagram that Klementieff has joined the cast for the next two back-to-back instalments in the hit action franchise. The director teased the casting by saying “how do you say femme fatale in French?”
Using the term ‘femme fatale’ sounds like Klementieff’s character will be giving Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt some trouble – and if this is the direction the film takes, it’s likely we will see Klementieff and Isla Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) clash throughout both films.
Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to hit theatres on 23rd July 2021. Mission: Impossible 8 is slated for August 25, 2022.
