Karen Gillan‘s Nebula was basically Gamora’s “evil sister” in the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ but expect even more from her when she returns in ‘Vol. 2’ which will give fans an even deeper look into her backstory and how it impacts her present… grumpiness. In fact, when asked about that very subject, she replied “Oh, absolutely! But we’re going to find out why.”
As for the film overall, Gillan enthusiastically described the new film as an “amplified” version of the first, saying:
“I’m so excited for people to see it! I just feel like it’s all of the best elements of the first one, just amplified. It’s even better – it’s funnier, the music’s even better … the second album is a blinder. It’s great. And in the first one everyone was being established. Now that that’s out of the way, you really get to delve into all of their dilemmas and things like that. I think family would really be the main theme of the thing. And my character Nebula is dealing with a whole lot of stuff there – we see a whole new side to her. A much more human side, actually, where we understand how truly awful and difficult her daddy issues are.”
We do know already that Nebula and Yondu both would up in the Guardian’s corner and we’ll surely see how those interactions pan out, but one thing we already do know is that this won’t be the last time we see Nebula on the big screen.
Though she couldn’t reveal too much, Gillan did spill that she was included in 2018’s Russo Brothers ‘Avengers: Infinity War’:
“Yeah, she’s making a cheeky appearance there. I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say, but I’m pretty happy with how much she gets to do.”
Since clearly this will be the big confrontation between the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Thanos, I guess it’s safe to say Nebula, who is one of Thanos’ daughters, will have a pretty important role.
