Karen Gillan Calls GUARDIANS’ Heroes “Bad Guys”
It looks like Marvel’s next superhero team aren’t quite the heroes. A least that’s what Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan says in an interview with Total Film, talking about 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxyin which she plays the villainous Nebula.
“What’s different about [Guardians of the Galaxy] is that, all the heroes, everybody [in the movie] is a bad guy,” Gillan told Total Film’s Josh Winning. “There's just good guys within the bad guys.”
When asked about the possibility of the Guardians of the Galaxy someday coming to face Marvel’s primary superhero team the Avengers, Gillan was unsure of it happening.
“That sounds really cool, but it’s not something I’ve heard anything about, though.”
MARK MILLAR Sells Playground Drama KINDERGARTEN HEROES To Fox As Live-Action Film
Hollywood seems to love Mark Millar; and especially, 20th Century Fox. Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has scooped up a comic project Millar announced in 2012 titled
as a live-action film, with hopes it’ll be a tentpole family-friendly franchise. Fox has tapped screenwriter Carter Blanchard, a lesser-known screenwriter who’s written some well-received screenplays for a Spy Hunter movie and a DreamWorks project called Glimmer.
Mark Millar announced Kindergarten Heroes back in February 2012 as a kid-friendly superhero picture book by him and artist Curtis Tiegs. At that time Millar said the UK publisher Books Noir would publish the book, but nothing has materialized to date.
This movie deal for Kindergarten Heroes would be the second major deal Millar has made with 20th Century Fox, following news last year that the Scottish writer had been hired as a creative consultant for Fox’s raft of Marvel superhero film franchises, X-Men and Fantastic Four.
