A new alternate Nebula design from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been revealed by Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park.
What did Nebula’s other design look like?
In a tweet, Park showed off concept art of Nebula with wire-like hair and a less robotic eye. Park explains that director James Gunn played with the idea of having less mechanics around Nebula’s eye alongside potentially giving the character hair, then states that it was “an honor” to be a part of the character’s arc since the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
“In the film, our beloved band of misfits are looking a bit different these days,” reads the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel’s synopsis. “Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. A mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was directed by James Gunn and was released in theaters on May 5. The sequel heavily features the backstory of Rocket — the armed and snarky raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper — and his history with the film’s villain, The High Evolutionary (played by Chukwudi Iwuji). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is now playing in theaters.
