Who Is Karen in Guardians of the Galaxy?

It’s around 12 months since we learned of Karen Gillan’s imminent departure from Doctor Who, and in that time she has recorded a couple of movies.

At the recent Edinburgh Film Festival screening of romcom Not Another Happy Ending, the Amy Pond actress was quizzed about what might well be her breakthrough role, playing a key – but as yet unnamed – villain in the new Marvel comics blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, which has already started shooting in London.

Speaking to The Scotsman, Gillan confessed that her lips were sealed.

“I can’t really say anything about it other than my character is really bad. My hands are more tied on this than they were on Dr Who!”

All we ask is that if she’s playing a bad girl, she looks damned hot…

Rumours suggest that a full casting and schedule announcement will come along this week – fingers crossed!

    If she is the main villain, I’m going out on a limb and saying Dark Phoenix. There doesn’t seem to be much comic book history between Guardians of the Galaxy and Dark Phoenix, but it just seems so plausible to me.

    A name that’s been bandied about a lot is ‘Angela’, the valkyrie character transferred over from Image when Marvel bought out McFarlane. The red hair would certainly fit.
