While discussing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Screen Rant, Nebula actress Karen Gillian was asked if she wants to see the character have a more prominent role in Avengers: Infinity War.
“I hope so. Of course, that would be amazing! When I was preparing to play Nebula the first time, I read the Infinity Gauntlet. I loved it because it was like the most Nebula heavy comic and yeah, I mean that would be amazing if it does for that storyline. I’m hoping. I don’t know yet – very big secret, but I’m hoping.”
Infinity Gauntlet sees Nebula tortured at the hands of Thanos. However, after, the character gets the gauntlet and does some serious damage.
