Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn likes to take his films one at a time, but there's one character from his Marvel franchise he'd be interested in seeing spin off into their own film: Nebula. The writer/director said that when a fan tweeted to him about his appreciation for Karen Gillan's character in the first movie.
I have a few favorites myself, but I agree that Nebula should lead her own film - it's something I've thought about from the beginning. https://t.co/lyPAA6Hyxw— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) October 16, 2016
Gillan will reprise her role as Nebula in 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with the actress saying she's "really excited about it delving into the sisterly relationship between Gamora and Nebula. I think we're going to see a little bit more of that, and it's going to be a bit more fleshed out."
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to open in theaters May 5, 2017.
