One of the most fan favourite comic book characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the Guardians of the Galaxy’s blue meanie Nebula played by Karen Gillan. And lately, after promoting the Guardians 3 movie, she is now teasing Nebula’s role in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Karen Gillan’s Nebula will be seen in the upcoming movie Thor: Love and Thunder directed by Taika Waititi. Going from antagonist to ally and Avenger, Nebula possibly has had one of the best arcs in the MCU. Fans can’t wait to see how the Guardians of the Galaxy reckons with Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, and some A+ new footages of Nebula released by Karen Gillan. It appears, when we do see her, there’s going to be some crazy stuff with the character. Karen Gillan, in a recent interview with Collider, spoke about what she experienced on the sets of different Marvel films while playing the character, Nebula. When it came to Thor: Love and Thunder, she shared, “And then Taika really brought out the bonkers side. I think everyone is just really, really funny and bonkers and wild. …I don’t know if it’s personal [levity]. Like I don’t think she’s finding herself funny or being funny, but in her seriousness I think we will find her funny, and just the pure aggression that we’ve tapped into.”
The first time when the Guardians of the Galaxy were not with their director, James Gunn, it was marked by Thanos’ devastating hunt for Infinity Stones. The Guardians’ banter with Thor (which proved to be a comedic hit) and the other Avengers was expertly defended by the Russo brothers with the help of Gunn. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Thor grabbed a lift aboard the Milano with Star-Lord, Drax, Mantis, Rocket, Groot, and Nebula. From where Avengers: Endgame left off, the “Asgardians of the Galaxy” are expected to come back in Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, which will see the God of Thunder give his mantle to Jane Foster. We will also get to see the return of Valkyrie in the film, as she looks for a queen to help her rule New Asgard and Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher.
Thor: Love and Thunder wrapped shooting earlier this month and is presently scheduled to hit theatres. An equal number of bonkers cast are present in the film. Stars like Chris Hemsworth and the returning Natalie Portman, a number of Guardians characters including Nebula, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Kraglin (Sean Gunn) will be seen along with other mainline Guardians. Russell Crowe appears to graduate from gladiator to Greek God as Zeus and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher in the film. Matt Damon and Sam Neill as Loki and Odin, who were in the play scene in Thor: Ragnarok will be returning as well as the Asgardian Actors. Melissa McCarthy as Hela will join them.
