Karen Gillan Teases Nebula’s Role In The Next ‘Avengers’ Films

Avengers Infinity War Karen Gillan NebulaAvengers: Infinity War will unite the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the battle against Thanos and one character, in particular, has personal reasons for wanting to see the Mad Titan thwarted. Having been subjected to the unparalleled cruelty of Thanos during her youth, Nebula may finally get her revenge in Infinity War or the untitled fourth Avengers film. In an interview with Den of Geek, Karen Gillan teased Nebula’s role in the upcoming Avengers films and commented on the lengthy shooting schedule of both projects.

While Gillan could not provide details on Nebula’s role, she did hint that the character’s history with Thanos will “come to a head” in the next Avengers films:

“I’ve been sworn to secrecy, but I definitely think that all of what we’ve been building towards, with all the backstories between Nebula and Thanos, is definitely going to come to a head in the Avengers film, and she’s definitely going to confront all of those traumatic memories. I definitely think she is going to have her moment.”

It appears that Nebula will have a considerable role in both films, with Gillan revealing that she will be needed on set for the rest of the year:

“So this is the longest shoot in the world. It’s been going since January, and it goes right up until December. And then it goes into reshoots—like immediate, more additional photography—next year. So it’s like an ongoing thing, which is really cool, because it feels like a whole family now.”

Avengers Infinity War ThanosDisney broke the internet on Saturday when they showed the first footage from Avengers: Infinity War at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. Lucky for all you guys, I was in the room and made a mental list of all the best moments from the teaser. While the movie only just reached the production half-way mark, the footage director Joe Russo showed to the audience still included some epic moments.

It wasn’t a trailer per se — more so just a compilation of random moments designed to excite the audience. Whatever you want to call it, it did a great job of expressing how emotionally charged this movie will be. Remember, this is the conclusion of nearly ten years worth of stories, so expect some big action and tear jerking moments as Marvel Studios starts to shift towards Phase 4 and a new game plan.
