Karen Gillan recently gave an insight into how life is going for Nebula, Gamora’s adopted sister, and Thanos’ adopted daughter as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ propels the Marvel Studios series toward its climax.
“Now we’re seeing Nebula post the death of the source of her trauma, Thanos. He’s been eliminated from the story, and now we’re seeing her character become a little bit of the person that she should have been had that not happened to her,” Gillan says.
Guardians of the Galaxy became the highest-rated MCU movie after its first release on Rotten Tomatoes. In second place we had the original Iron Man which held the crown as until Spider-Man: Homecoming came along in 2017. Guardians of the Galaxy was a commercial and critical success, grossing at $773.3 million worldwide to become the highest-grossing superhero film released in 2014. Its screenplay, direction, acting, soundtrack, visual effects, action sequences, and of course, its humour were highly praised.
Guardians of the Galaxy and other Marvel characters such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, and others, have taken the world by storm in the entertainment industry. Countless of fans eagerly wait for movies every year making every movie a hit after the next. The same can be said with Marvel video games with popular games like Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy being rated as some of the top video games ever. And gamers do not only stop at video games. Marvel slot games by Playtech, a software giant that is available at the best casino slot sites, are also incredibly popular with fans.
In the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3., Nebula is not the same Nebula that we have seen before in both the previous movies and games. She is now irritable and cranky, and her idea of happiness is now “her new family with the new Guardians and letting love in for the first time, rather than the defence mechanism always triggering. Allowing her to be loved and to love,” says Gillian who was present at SXSW for Late Bloomers’ world premiere from director Lisa Steen and Anna Greenfield, screenwriter.
In James Gunn’s third film, Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt, is still in shock after the death of Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana. In order to protect one of their own while also defending the universe, he must gather his squad behind him. A mission that could very well mean the end of the Guardians as we know them if it fails. In interviews, Gunn has also highlighted how crucial it was for him to conclude the story of Rocket Raccoon. The High Evolutionary, portrayed by Chukwudi Iwuji, is a foe in part 3. In fact, at the Comic-Con at San Diego, the actor says to Hall H, fully in costume, “Thank you for inspiring me for how vomitous you all are…I can’t wait to dissect all of you and see what I can learn.”
In the movie Late Bloomers, Gillan plays Louise, a despondent 28-year-old singer who recently got divorced and ends up in physical therapy with individuals twice her age. Louise breaks her hip. There, she encounters grumpy Polish woman Antonia (Malgorzata Zajaczkowska), who is illiterate in English. Louise ultimately takes care of her. They both dislike the arrangement. The character resembles the alcoholic Gillan portrayed in her feature directorial debut, The Party’s Only Starting, in several ways. Late Bloomers is “an unabashedly female-fronted indie, displaying an engaging and refreshingly vanity-free performance from Karen Gillan,” raved Damon Wise in a recent review.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 launches the summer on May 5.
