Karen Gillan Is Back in Blue (For Guardians of the Galaxy)

Karen Gillan is now back in blue – playing Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

The former Doctor Who companion took to Twitter to tease her return as Thanos’ adopted daughter, with a simple photo of her blue hand. It has to be said, her costume looks a little battered…

Gillan previously said of her make-up:

“I was mentally prepared to go through it again. It’s so cool. The finished product is so cool that it’s just so worth it when I see it at the end.”

Gillan added:

“I think what I’m really excited about it delving into the sisterly relationship between Gamora and Nebula. I think that we’re going to see a little bit more of that, and it’s going to be a bit more fleshed out.”

She apparently read the script for this second Guardians while listening to the soundtrack in the background!

And in related Marvel-but-also-Doctor-Who news, Finn Jones has been cast as Danny Rand aka. Iron Fist in the upcoming TV series of the same name. Fans might know Finn for playing Loras Tyrell in Game of Thrones, but the main interest to Whovians is his part as Santiago Jones – the grandson of Jo Grant!

He appeared in the 2010 two-part story, Death of the Doctor in The Sarah Jane Adventures, which saw Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor teaming up with not only Elisabeth Sladen’s Sarah Jane Smith but also Katy Manning as Jo Jones.

Iron Fist will come to TV screens later this year with 13 episodes, before he becomes part of The Defenders with Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones.


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
