Karen Gillan Breaks Silence On James Gunn Returning For ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

Avengers: Endgame actress Karen Gillan finally spoke about how she felt after James Gunn was reinstated as director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3.

Speaking with the L.A. Times, Karen Gillan opened up about Avengers: Endgame, working with Robert Downey Jr., her future at Marvel and several other topics. Karen Gillan was also asked how she felt about James Gunn’s return for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3. Karen Gillan said that she was happy that their leader was back and that it would have been weird to do the movie without him:

“I was so happy because it truly feels like we’re part of this little family on “Guardians.” And to have your leader ripped away from you is a really weird feeling. I feel that it wouldn’t be the same type of “Guardians” movie without him. So much of it is his personality. The sense of humor, his taste in music, the characters — there’s so much of him in there, so that would have been quite a strange sensation to make it without him. We were just so happy when he came back. It feels like everything’s as it should be now.”

Karen Gillan did an amazing job as Nebula in James Gunn’s Guardians films and now in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The future of Karen Gillan’s Nebula in the MCU is somewhat bright after the reformed villainess doesn’t have the looming shadow of Thanos over her anymore. She may need to find Gamora after the events of Endgame but it finally feels like Karen Gillan is part of the Guardians’ family. Starting with the James Gunn’s first Guardians film, no one ever thought that Karen Gillan’s Nebula would turn out to be such an important character in the Infinity Saga.

Like Karen Gillan, other actors from the Guardians franchise like Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista have expressed their joy for having James Gunn back in the director’s seat for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 again. James Gunn started his particular adventure with the Guardians of the Galaxy way back in 2014 and turned a virtually unknown team into a multimillionaire franchise for Marvel. After Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn was ready to helm the third installment when Disney sacked him for some inappropriate tweets from years ago. Disney reversed this decision some weeks ago when they gave James Gunn back his job.

Nevertheless, James Gunn will have to finish The Suicide Squad for DC first before tackling the Guardians’ third installment sometime between the end of 2019 and the start of 2020. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is rumored to start production sometime in 2020 and debut in 2021.

Marvel recently announced that there will be eight new films between 2020 and 2022. One of them will surely be Karen Gillan’s and James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 but we will only know the official date after Spider-Man: Far From Home debuts in July and closes MCU Phase 3.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
