If you felt there wasn’t enough Nebula in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, fear not! Scottish actress Karen Gillan is confirmed for both the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel and Avengers: Infinity War.
In the first Guardians of the Galaxy, we found out that Nebula was the adopted sister of Gamora. They’re both the non-biological children of Thanos, who then gave them to Ronan. That has to cause some daddy issues, right? After all, Nebula was willing to fight by Ronan’s side if he promised to kill Thanos [in the first Guardians of the Galaxy]. Obviously, this could make someone a little bitter and from what we got from Nebula, she was not a happy camper. Gamora tried to reason with her in the end, but Nebula made it apparent she wanted nothing to do with either side.
As far as the “cheeky side” to Nebula, Gillan had this to say:
“Yeah, she’s making a cheeky appearance there (in Avengers: Infinity War),” the actress said. “I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say, but I’m pretty happy with how much she gets to do.“
Fans of the comics might have an inkling about just what it is Nebula will be up to in the film and how it may satisfy some of her issues.
Check out Gillan’s next turn as Nebula when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 comes out May 5, 2017.
