Karen Gillan Confirms She's Playing Nebula Again, Most Likely In Thor
The actor had to cut her hair in order to get ready for shooting, most likely for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Playing the daughter of Thanos in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies as well as Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, Karen Gillan has cemented herself as Nebula, and she is coming back for more. In a recent Instagram post, Gillan confirmed she'll be shooting as the character again very soon, out in Sydney, Australia, but for what project?
In her Instagram Story post, which DigitalSpy also posted, Gillan said, "This is my hair. I cut it the other day in preparation for Nebula, so we don't have to get so much hair into the bald cap because I have so much hair. It's unbelievable. It's just so thick."
However, this most likely isn't for Guardians of he Galaxy Vol. 3, as director James Gunn is in Vancover, British Columbia filming the first season of HBO Max's Peacemaker series--a spin-off of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.
However, there is one Marvel Cinematic Universe project that is filming this month in Sydney, and that's Thor: Love and Thunder. While Gillan never came out to say that's the movie she'll be in, it's the only one currently in production: Shang-Chi, Eternals, and the Disney+ Loki series have all wrapped filming.
Chris Hemsworth is the only member of the cast with recent posts on Instagram, but nothing relating to the shoot. However, director Taika Watiti did recently post a picture of him watching the movie White Chicks on a laptop, which is delightful.
Thor: Love and Thunder won't arrive in theaters until May 6, 2022, but it's going to be a big movie. Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Jane Foster, Chris Pratt will make an appearance as Star-Lord, and Christian Bale has been cast as Gorr the Butcher.
