This month’s Empire magazine turns the spotlight on the upcoming Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, and subscribers receive a very special cover featuring the three villains of the movie – and yes, that includes former Doctor Who companion, Karen Gillan as Nebula!
Unfortunately for non-subscribers, this is what Empire does: release a standard cover for retailers and create a special cover, mostly-devoid of spiel, for loyal readers. Nonetheless, that doesn’t stop us gawking at the limited edition covers on the net and trying to control our drool.
It’s a good thing that the regular cover, despite featuring no Karen at all, is still very cool.
James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy, tells Empire:
There’s a lot of strange stuff in the movie. But that’s the thing that makes it different. For cinema to remain relevant, you really need to not make every film seem like it’s Transformers 18 and to try to make things that are a little bit different.
Frankly, if Karen were in it, I’d even watch Transformers.
To read the full feature, grab your copy later this week; the issue is released in UK stores on Thursday. The movie, meanwhile, hits UK cinemas in just over a month’s time (31st July), and the USA the following day!
