During a chat with Karen Gillan about her new horror movie Oculus, Screen Crush dropped in a few Guardians Of The Galaxy related questions. The actress is wary of giving too much away, but she does confirm a few things about her character -- the "sadistic" enforcer to Ronan The Accuser (Lee Pace), Nebula. The character will be the nemesis of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and Gillan says Nebula has a " lot of reasons for what she's doing to her". In the comics Nebula is (or at least claims to be) the granddaughter of the Titan, Thanos. Will that be retained for the movie? Gillan reveals that they've "reestablished it in quite a lot of ways", but there's an "element of that". Finally she's asked if she's signed on for any more movies, but Gillan declines to answer, because obviously that would spoil whether Nebula makes it out of this first movie alive or not!


Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:37 AM
in the prelude,i havent read it but apparently gamora and nebula are adopted sisters and gamora was really evil and cruel when they were young and nebula was the nice one but gamora was cruel to her , as was thanos and she was transformed by that
Gusto - 4/9/2014, 8:37 AM
I'd like to provide Karen
Gillian with some details
on my junk.
JoeMomma29 - 4/9/2014, 8:38 AM
@ Gusto

I heard those are some very small details........
cipher - 4/9/2014, 8:39 AM
I think Karen's gonna be the standout of the film. I dunno, I'm just excited to see what she does more than anything.
JoeMomma29 - 4/9/2014, 8:40 AM
@ Gusto

ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:40 AM

A quarter inch of pure thunder, baby!
cipher - 4/9/2014, 8:42 AM
Snnnnnnnnnnnniiifffffffffff. Smells like a filthy f*cking Hydra agent in here. Maybe I'm just paranoid.
Gusto - 4/9/2014, 8:42 AM
AKA...my bean de l'amour!
ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:43 AM
Mrblackjack-apparently its not gore slasher horror, but its very quiet and creepy,some jump scares but mainly the creep factor
ATrueHero1987 - 4/9/2014, 8:44 AM
Besides how everyone is describing Ronan, I'm loving everything I hear about this movie. She looks great as Nebula!
ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:46 AM
i think we are gonna get a new trailer with x men days of future past
JoeMomma29 - 4/9/2014, 8:47 AM
@ Yoss

Pfft, Gusto is old he knows all about cancer.........
ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:48 AM
ATRUEHERO-yeah i was a little worried about ronan,saying he is psychotic but pace has said "he is a complicated kree" i dont mid if ronan in the MCU is more villainous then his 616 counterpart
TheRealistStarLord - 4/9/2014, 8:48 AM
Since The Winter Soldier is by far the best villain in Phase 2 now, I assume that Karen's Nabula gonna take the throne as the most badass villain in Phase 2 eventually. She has potential....I can feel it..
SpiderFraud - 4/9/2014, 8:48 AM
I also think she is gonna be the standout of the film. The one scene when she turns her head, really stood out to me.
TheRealistStarLord - 4/9/2014, 8:49 AM
Nebula*
SageMode - 4/9/2014, 8:49 AM
She has like a shy innocence about her. Too cute.
Batmaniac - 4/9/2014, 8:49 AM
The practical makeup for Nebula is some of the best makeup I've seen. They've really done an awesome job with her look, and kudos to them for doing it with next to no CGI.

ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:51 AM
bustaspideypose-it seemed almost spider like, the way she moved her head

The Realist Starlord-the winter soldier is my second favorite MCU villain behind Loki with Killian at three(yeah i really like killian, his motivation wasnt revenge, his plan was very interesting etc.)
kinghulk - 4/9/2014, 8:53 AM
nebula=awesome
ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:54 AM
i hope someone posts the batroc and the fight between cap and winter soldier in the streets

kinghulk - 4/9/2014, 8:54 AM
ezio- yeah i agree killians motivation wasent revenge, he only attacked tony cos tony threatened the mandarin.
Gusto - 4/9/2014, 8:55 AM
I'm bashing my junk as we speak.
crushercreel23 - 4/9/2014, 8:55 AM
Your welcome

JoeMomma29 - 4/9/2014, 8:55 AM
Her look reminds me of Freeza from Dragon Ball Z, it is truly top notch on the effects.

TheRealistStarLord - 4/9/2014, 8:56 AM


I am hooked on a feeling! I'm high on believing!
SpiderFraud - 4/9/2014, 8:56 AM
@ezio619

Yeah, little things like that always stick out for me. My favorite part in TDK, is when Joker has his head out in the cop car.
Batmaniac - 4/9/2014, 8:56 AM
Judging by her not revealing whether or not she's signed on for me, I reckon Nebula is going to get killed by Gamora or something.
Klone - 4/9/2014, 8:57 AM
@cipher

Funny, being a Sagittarius the description actually fits me :P
ezio619 - 4/9/2014, 8:58 AM
BustaSpideypose-yeah i love that joker scene in the dark knight, him just reviling in the chaos he has created
cipher - 4/9/2014, 8:59 AM
Haha, I'm a Pisces. I think mine is pretty f*ckin' accurate.
cipher - 4/9/2014, 9:01 AM
ezio- Winter Soldier is probably my favourite villain in the MCU. Every time the dude showed up, shit went tits up. That's what I really liked- he seemed like a genuine threat, y'know? He just had this way of carrying himself that made him seem like someone you wouldn't want to f*ck with.
