I'm surprised this rumor didn't come up already here: Karen Gillan's character might actually be Marvel's newest character, former Spawn ally/adversary Angela, which would be freaking awesome.

Or not.
Angela had fallen into obscurity. Her first appearance could easily be gotten for $5 at any show. I sometimes saw Spawn #9, in F/VF shape, in $1 bins even.

I hope this turns out to be fanboy wankery. Don't care for Angela to be in the movie. She's an on loan character, they should use a proper female character from their library.

^ That's the thing: she's not an 'on-loan' character; Neil Gaiman is bringing her directly into the Marvel pantheon.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Fair enough. I still don't like her in this capacity, mostly overall, others fill the role better from their library.

So Marvel bought her off of Gaiman then? I don't recall reading that in the write ups.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Not that I know of, but he's personally adding her to their pantheon and Joe Queseda Queseda redesigned her look, so she's now an official Marvel character.

It'd be interesting if it proves true that the movie and comics have such synergy going. Usually the movies are behind whatever is going on in the comic world.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

From the moment they announced that Angela was becoming a Marvel character I though it would be cool, once Gaiman was done with this stint with Marvel, to see Gaiman take her elsewhere, to have her become a comic character unfazed by the boundaries of any specific comic universe.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

^ If Gaiman is able to take Angela elsewhere, she'll probably have a different backstory, role, and design from either her Spawn (Image) or Marvel appearances.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Gaimen must be leasing her rights to Marvel?

After all he's been through with that woman, it seems odd to just toss her.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Gaiman's talented enough that it wouldn't be difficult for him to create another backstory for her and design a new look for her. At this point, though, we don't know what is going to or might happen with her if/when Gaiman's latest stint with Marvel ends.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I've already read Age of Ultron 10 which is when Angela enters the Marvel Universe, and it's pretty obvious that her complete history in the Image Universe with Spawn is still completely intact... Although her powers seem to be based upon the existence of the judochristian Heaven and Hell, which could be problematic if the Christians are wrong in 616.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Ok. I guess I was wrong when I said indications seemed to be that she had a new backstory. Thanks for that info.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I've never read Spawn, so what confuses me is how come wikipedia says that she is a baddie, but Angela is signing up with the Guardians as a goodie?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Angela was to Spawn what Catwoman and Talia are to Barman: she was both an adversary and an ally for him.

I was under the impression from the comic sites when the news broke that Angela is now Marvel, and would not be going anywhere else (but I haven't exactly researched that out).
