Nebula Was Originally Meant To Die In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

In a recent interview, Karen Gillan revealed that Nebula was originally supposed to die in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Karen Gillan revealed that Nebula was originally supposed to die in the first Guardians of the Galaxy. They asked Gillan if she expected such a large arc for Nebula, and she replied with the following:

“No, I did not actually. I definitely had a feeling that there was room for the character to expand in the future, but she was originally supposed to die in the first movie, I think I remember in the script. She obviously did not die, then I found out that she was coming back in the second movie and then I found out we got to explore all these amazing things about her past and her relationship with Gamora, her sister, so I was really happy.”

Nebula already is confirmed to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, so we know her life seems to have far more worth than her character having been killed off. Gillan also was trying to pitch a spin-off sibling rivalry film for Gamora and Nebula.

“I’m waiting for this [spin-off] because obviously this needs to happen. I don’t know if it’s ever going to happen, but I would love it.”

While their spin-off wouldn’t be the first female-driven project I’d have in mind, I certainly wouldn’t oppose the idea.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5th.
