Nebula has skilled one of the vital transformative arcs of any character within the MCU, going from secondary villain in Guardians of the Galaxy to serving as a hero alongside the Avengers in Avengers: Endgame (effectively, she was additionally the secondary villain once more in that because of her 2014 doppelgänger exhibiting up – time journey, am I proper?). You may assume that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 would be the cyborg murderer’s closing look within the franchise, then. However that’s not what Karen Gillan thinks.
Whereas chatting with Fandom, the Scottish actress made it clear that she expects much more from Nebula to return but. Quite than the dying of Thanos and turning into a hero being an endpoint, Gillan believes that it’s simply the other – a brand new starting for the character.
“I don’t really feel like her story is over in any respect. If something, I really feel like her story may simply be starting. We discovered her in a extremely damaged, weak place and over the course of the films, she’s needed to face the supply of all of her abuse. She’s simply had this enormous, cathartic expertise and the supply of the abuse has been eradicated, so what occurs subsequent? That’s one thing that I feel is extremely fascinating. The therapeutic can begin however that’s not going to be simple and it’s not going to be quick both.”
It’s not solely clear from Gillan’s feedback if that is her private view and she or he hopes that Marvel provides her the chance to play Nebula many extra occasions, or whether or not she’s hinting that she’s already had these chats with the studio and is aware of that she’s obtained a variety of initiatives developing.
It’s possible the latter, going by what her GotG co-star Vin Diesel lately let slip. The Groot voice actor lately confirmed a few of the Guardians will seem in Thor: Love and Thunder. Given Gillan’s assurance she’s not accomplished with the MCU, we will presumably count on Nebula to be amongst them. Perhaps we will additionally assume Nebula makes it out of Vol. 3 alive. Perhaps even setting her as much as get, say, a Disney Plus collection to herself?
If Nebula is in Thor 4, then we’ll see Gillan go bald and blue once more as quickly as November 2021.
