Karen Gillan Talks Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Teases Avengers Appearance

Actress Karen Gillan is set to return to the cosmos of the Marvel Universe with this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as the cyborg assassin Nebula, and speaking with TheWrap, she previewed a bit of what we can expect from her character in the sequel.

“What I love about the second movie for Nebula in particular is that we get — We know that she’s a pretty angry woman with some daddy issues. [But] in the second movie, we’re going to start to see how much pain her father actually caused her, and we’re going to delve right into the relationship with her sister Gamora. I think we might even feel a tinge of sympathy towards Nebula this time, because we really start to see the emotional crack in her character,” she added. “I was just allowed to completely explore that and take it to a completely different dimension with her. I was really happy about that.”

In related news, The BBC spoke with her on the set of her upcoming directorial debut where she offered a tidbit for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, saying:

“I’ll be making a little appearance in the next Avengers movies.”

It remains to be seen which other characters will be making an appearance in the film, though every character that’s still alive (and maybe even dead) could potentially make an appearance. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will debut in theaters May 5, 2017 with Avengers: Infinity War islated for release on May 4, 2018.
