Karen Gillan joins Guardians of the Galaxy as the lead female villain

May. 31, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Looks like the girl who waited didn't have to twiddle her thumbs very long before receiving a big job after DOCTOR WHO.

Karen Gillan, best known to Whovians as Amy Pond the Eleventh Doctor's former companion has boarded James Gunn's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY as the lead female villain opposite Lee Pace as the lead male villain. Unfortunately, this is all we presently know about the role.

Damn, this cast just keeps getting better and better! Just yesterday, I delivered the news that Glenn Close was on the project as a leader in Nova Corps along with a confirmation that John C. Reilly would be playing Rhomann Dey. Already attached are Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Michael Rooker.

Shooting is said to begin at the end of June in the UK.

Who could Gillan be playing? Speculate away!

Good actress and a funny girl

I loved her spoof of Katy Perry's 'Kissed a Girl'. Very spot-on. Thought she was better at comedy than drama, but who knows? A lot of people lost it when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker and look how that turned out (minus the dying part).

Nebula?

Nebula could be the Guardians villainess. No one has mentioned her yet. Perhaps, Karen Gillan plays Thanos's daughter. The character would have a connection to both Thanos and the Avengers.

I was hoping that her shitty fifteen minutes of unwarranted fame were up. All she does is remind me of the nadir of Doctor Who.

I won't lie, her character did nothing for me. Always thought it would've been better if they kept her as a little girl. That's not a criticism of Karen though.

The nadir of Doctor Who was the cheese of Russell Davies' first year stories. Karen Gillian only improved as her role went on.

Alex Kingston and John Barrowman were in Arrow. Noel Clarke was in Trek 2, Now Gillan - glad to see some Doctor Who people in American sci-fi and fantasy!

Okay, now I really am curious to see her as a villain. I'm curious about this whole project, really. The cast seems eccentric enough to rival the characters they are playing.

Oh man, post Iron Man 3 this seems like a possibility. A very real, scary and dumb as hell possibility.

I'm with drewmanning below, my vote is for her playing Death. Just based on the above picture, she looks perfect for the role. She has a subtle sincere beauty with eyes that can pierce and captivate the soul.

I wouldn't figure her for the villain but am looking forward to seeing how she does this. Very attractive woman, easy to see why she's melted lots of Whovians' hearts.

Umm ... she's a good actress, but not in a villain-y way. Am I making sense?

Like she's good for comedic, and more light-hearted stuff.
But a villain? Maybe in pure schlock. I dunno, this is kinda odd.
Even worse if they don't do anything for her legs (that came straight from Valhalla).

She could be like Ms. Tessmacher in the OG Superman movies a fun sidekick to the big bad. I hope they don't go that route but I could see it.

Okay, now I'm speculating either Sir Anthony Hopkins or Sir MIchael Caine is going to be Rocket Raccoon.

Well it can't be Hopkins due to him being Thor's father.

The plan is to get such a great cast that no one will notice there's a talking raccoon in the movie.

I've seen a lot of speculation that the bad guys are actually the Nova Corp, which aren't necessarily evil but I think the production has referred to the Guardians as a band of fugitives

This has to be the most diverse cast for a comic book film ever.

Now who's playing Rocket Raccoon?
