Karen Gillan Confirms James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Script is Done and “Wonderful”. Recently, Marvel Studios Star, Karen Gillan (Nebula) spoke with Yahoo! Entertainment about her new film, Jumanji 2, and the conversation easily turned to her role as Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Gillan was asked about James Gunn’s return to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after he was controversially fired and then rehired by Marvel Studios and Disney to direct the final installment of the GotG Trilogy.
“I can say that I’ve read it and it’s amazing,” Gillan teased. “We’re all really excited that James is back to complete the trilogy because it wouldn’t have felt right without him. It’s a wonderful, wonderful script.”
In a previous interview with Variety, Karen shared, “His personality, the tone of those movies, I can only describe as James’ personality,” she said. “It’s his sense of humor, his writing, his taste in music. These characters are extensions of him. It’s a really personal project for him. It definitely wouldn’t have been the same version of ‘Guardians.’”
Karen went on with Yahoo! Entertainment to share how she never expected to have such. pivotal role in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), but has loved getting to grow her character and become a bigger part of the story. “When I signed on to Nebula, it was eight days of filming and she was supposed to die in the first Guardians film,” she explained. “So to go on and be able to evolve the character and then have her be this pivotal role in Endgame was amazing. I didn’t see it coming at all.”
