Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel will unite several heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the ultimate battle against the ruthless Thanos. One of the characters who has the biggest score to settle with the Mad Titan is Karen Gillan’s Nebula, the adopted child of Thanos who vowed to get revenge on her father for years of abuse during her childhood. However, it appears that Nebula may have to wait until the second installment of the epic story as Gillan has revealed that she has yet to receive her script for the upcoming Avengers film.
Gillan revealed the news during a panel at Phoenix Comicon, prompting fans to speculate that Nebula may not be returning until the untitled fourth Avengers film. However, with Avengers: Infinity War scheduled to film until August, there may still be time for Gillan to shoot scenes as Nebula.
Considering Marvel Studios has a penchant for secrecy, it is entirely possible that they are holding the script back from Gillan until her time to begin filming draws closer. Of course, with the film still just over one year away from arriving in theaters, fans can only speculate on when Nebula will return.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Infinity War will be release in theaters on May 4, 2018.
