One of the complex dynamics in Guardians of the Galaxy was between the two stepsisters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Next week, the two sisters will be back on the big screen along with the rest of the Guardians in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
During a recent press conference, Saldana and Gillan, along with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke about the dynamic between the two sisters in the upcoming sequel. Saldana, who has two sisters in real life, spoke about how she was looking forward to explore their dynamic a lot more in the second installment.
“I think what I loved the most, and it may sound selfish, but, definitely the relationship between Gamora and Nebula. I’m one of three sisters. I’ve been itching and yearning to see more of a female presence in action films, because I love action films and I’m not that deep. I love watching The Equalizer and I’ll watch that 50 times over any kind of dramatic piece. So to have a film with three female characters that are adding such unique qualities to the film and they are very relevant and their relationships are explored deeply, I was appreciative and super excited.”
Adding to what her co-star said, Gillan spoke about the fact that Saldana gave the actress some useful tips in fighting during production.
“Zoe literally teaches me how to fight while we’re doing it. She’ll be like, ‘Turn your head like that, straddle someone like that, and you’re going to look cool.’ And I’m like, ‘Yes! Thank you!’”
Feige spoke about how he and director James Gunn want to bring strong female characters like Nebula and Gamora to life from the comics on to the big screen as he teases that their dynamic in the film is a major high point.
“There are lots and lots of great female characters in the comics that we want to bring to life on screen, and it was very important to James to include these characters – and more than just include them, but give them their own storyline and have it be more than just their ability to fight or romance with a male character. That’s why I think Nebula and Gamora are a high point of the movie, and that relationship is one of the biggest and best arcs in the whole movie, that sister relationship.”
“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”
James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Michael Rooker as Yondu Udonta, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Glenn Close as Irani Rael, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface, Kurt Russell as Ego, along with Sylvester Stallone and Michael Rosenbaum, opens in theaters on Friday, May 5.
