Thor: Ragnarok said to tie in to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. A new report claims that one of the alien races Thor and Hulk encounter in the film will play a role in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.
According to That Hashtag Show, Ragnarok will see its heroes come across the Cotati, a race of aliens that has existed for millennia. This is particularly noteworthy as in the comics, the Cotati play a role in the creation of a major Guardians of the Galaxy character:
In the comics, the Cotati are best known for being directly responsible for awakening the powers within Mantis, a character that’s set to make her cinematic debut in James Gunn‘s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 in May. They’re typically depicted as being a stationary plant-like species who tend to rely on their telepathic abilities, but it seems as though, the film versions will look somewhat similar to the character played by Pom Klementieff.
That Hashtag Show was unable to obtain confirmation on whether or not Klementieff will actually reprise her role as Mantis for Thor: Ragnarok, but it’s certainly not out of the question with the film’s release date still over a year away. Also, considering that the Cotati originate on the planet Hala, a.k.a. the homeworld of the Kree, it’s a pretty safe bet that the God of Thunder and the Green Goliath will likely be paying a visit to Hala while on their universal road trip.
