Avengers: Endgame and Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan thinks that the story of her character, Nebula, is just beginning.
Karen Gillan’s Nebula has surprisingly become one of the biggest characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First introduced as an antagonist in Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula has arguably had one of the most potent arcs in the entire film universe, going from a broken bad guy to one of the Avengers’ most trusted allies. This hero to villain arc eventually reached its conclusion with Nebula quite literally confronting and killing the villainous past version of herself in Avengers: Endgame. While this arc may be finished actress Karen Gillan thinks that there is a lot more story to tell with Nebula.
While speaking to Fandom, Karen Gillan commented on Nebula’s arc in the last four films and discussed where her story could go:
“I don’t feel like her story is over at all. If anything, I feel like her story might just be beginning. We found her in a really broken, vulnerable place and over the course of the movies, she’s had to face the source of all of her abuse. She’s just had this huge, cathartic experience and the source of the abuse has been eliminated, so what happens next? That’s something that I think is incredibly interesting. The healing can start but that’s not going to be easy and it’s not going to be immediate either.”
