Karen Gillan Wraps ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, Talks the Future of Nebula

The actress wrapped work on Vol. 3 and, perhaps, nearly a decade of time in the MCU

A recent batch of photos from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 seemed to indicate that Karen Gillan’s time on set was coming to an end. Today, the actress confirmed that she had completed her portion of the 2023 sequel’s principal photography.

Gillan was cast as Nebula in early 2013 and has appeared in 4 films (Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame) with 2 more (Thor: Love and Thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3) appearances on the way. After serving as one of the primary antagonists of the first Guardians’ film, Gillan’s role expanded greatly as her character evolved. Nebula served as one of the main characters of Avengers: Endgame and director James Gunn has said she will play a larger role in Vol. 3.

As Gillan explains, the future of the character is up in the air given that Gunn has repeatedly explained that the third film will be the end of the story for the current iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy. It is possible, however, that given her popularity, Marvel Studios could look to work with Gillan on a solo Nebula project, keep her attached to future Guardians’ films or simply find another way to incorporate the character. Nebula has had one of the most intense and emotional onscreen arcs of any character in the MCU, so it would be a shame if the threequel closes the door on the character’s future now that she’s come to find herself after years of abuse at the hands of Thanos.
