From Dr. Who To Guardians Of The Galaxy

In News by Alex Moss Editor

Karen Gillan, best known as Dr. Who’s assistant Amy Pond, is the latest addition to Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy.  While her role is being kept under wraps it is said to be the main female villain of the film.  That presumably means she’ll be teaming with Lee Pace to try and thwart the Guardians led by Parks And Rec’s Chris Pratt as fighter pilot Peter Quill who joins the Guardians and becomes Star Lord.  Ophelia Lovibond is also on board for villainy duties as a rumoured assistant to Pace’s character.  Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Glenn Close, and Zoe Saldana are also set to star, if the latter finally signs her long gestating contract.  Super and Slither director James Gunn is directing the film which marks one of the more daring instalments to Marvel’s Phase Two plans.  Gillan will soon be seen in Not Another Happy Ending before starring opposite Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff for Oculus.  Source – The Hollywood Reporter
