During a recent interview, Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, spoke of the future relationship between her character and Gamora and how this will be central to the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3.
During a panel at Comic-Con Paris, the actress was asked what fans can expect from Nebula and Gamora in the next film in the James Gunn saga :
” I don’t know. I think I’d like to see what their relationship is now that the father, this big source of abuse that has been present throughout their lives, is out of the game, ” Gillan said of Thanos. ” I think it would be really interesting to see if they can form a normal, fraternal and loving relationship. “
Unfortunately, it will take a little while to see what happens in the next episode of the franchise, as director James Gunn is busy finishing The Suicide Squad for DC Films and Warner Bros. Pictures, and that as a result Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 will be part of Phase 5 of the MCU. At the moment, however, a release date has not yet been announced, although Chris Pratt has anticipated that (perhaps) the Guardians could appear in Thor 4, perhaps through a cameo.
Phase 5 will also include Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Blade, Ant-Man 3 and a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, plus (presumably) more films yet to announce.
