Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...marvels-561293

Wow. Puts Matt Smith's little movie to shame.

You know, while I never warmed to Amy Pond I've always had the feeling that Gillan was headed for big things.

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

Lead female villain. Hmm.

If this is feeding into Avengers 2 and Thanos, she could be playing Death.

Good for her. I'm glad to see her getting film roles.

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

I have to say my interest in Guardians of the Galaxy has skyrocketed in just the last few days between this news and the news of Glenn Close's casting. I had very little interest in the film because I barely even heard of the characters, let alone ever read any of their stories.

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

^ Totally agreed. This is... pretty damned awesome news. And oh man, if she's Death (wild speculation, true), that's just fantastic.

Also, this means we've now had two Doctor Who leads cast as leading Marvel villains.

I'd just be happy for both of them, personally.

First his friend Andrew Garfield lands the role of Spider-man and now his former co-star is a villain in a highly anticipated Marvel blockbuster.

Everyone is at different stages but yeah his little semi independent movie is miniscule


Not to mention Karen's been in Hollywood for what 8 to 10 months?

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

Gamora, Thanos' (adopted)'daughter, the most dangerous woman in the universe, is taken.

Captain Marvel(Aka Quasar) is the lesbian lover of Moon Dragon, a bald telepath are both key figures previously but not in the current line up.

I'd laugh if she played Groot who is a massive sentient tree.

Mantis, again a plant, but a Hippy plant in danger of smoking herself, monk(nun?) kung fu alien hottie.

oh Shit.

IMdb has Yondu listed which is the classic team form the 70s, which opens up Karens possible role completely unless she's just Starlords crying human wife back on earth who needs to be saved...

Neblua? Evil space Tyrant criminal who Thanos the nihilist death worshipper was not happy about hearing that she had been lying for years to any one who would listen that she was his biological daughter. After they beat each other up, the Mad Titan used the Infinity Gauntlet to adjust time so that he had fathered her after all.

NIkki is a joke. The flaming hair is cool?

Starhawk is a possibility? That's a husband and wife genderbending sharing abody and ultimate power.

I wonder if karen is going to use her real accent?

Really? I'm a bit tired of seeing big-budget versions of comic book stories I read as a kid, to be honest. I'd rather see something new, or in this case, something new to me.

I don't think it has anything to do with people "being at different stages", because that would imply that every actor's dream, every actor's motivation is to "make it big", to become popular and to star in summer blockbusters. In my experience, this is patently false and I find it quite alarming that so many people can't imagine that anyone would be motivated by anything else than fame and money. I think most actors are into their line of work because they enjoy acting and want to play a wide variety of roles and be challenged in their craft. Yes, they want to make a living, but I'd say that most of them would pick Matt Smith's "minuscule" movie over Karen Gillan's popcorn flick.

Christopher Eccleston will play Malekith the Accursed in Thor: The Dark World.

Honestly, part of the reason I wasn't interested was because the premise sounded silly.

In retrospect, I realize how absurd that is. All of the Marvel franchises are a bit silly in premise.

This movie had me interested since I first heard of the premise. This news raises my interest.

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

Since it's looking like the villians in the film will actually be the original GOTG* (who just to confuse you non-comics fans, actually come from the 31st century) I'd say that this is who she's playing:

http://marvel.com/universe/Nikki


*There was a story recently that there were plans to spin Lee Pace's character off into his own film, which wouldn't make much sense if he was only a villian but would if he was a mind-controlled Vance Astro.

Is she one of Mar-vell's seemingly endless stream of kids?

I thought she was just married to a plant. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Well, Karen is a redhead.

A lot of planets have a Scotland.

Re: Karen Gillan cast as one of the leads in Guardians Of The Galaxy

When I first saw Karen Gillan on DW, I was unimpressed with her acting skills. It's like she had only two facial expressions: wide-eyed, and wide-eyed and pouty. But she definitely got better as the series went on. She was actually very good in "The Impossible Astronaut". I'm interested to see how she does in "Guardians".

She can't be any worse than January Jones as Emma Frost. *gags*
