Karen Gillan, who starred as Doctor Who’s companion for several seasons on the hit BBC show, is joining the cast of Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy.
The movie is in casting mode, with Glenn Close joining the roll call earlier this week. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana andDave Bautista lead the cast of Marvel’s space adventure movie, which has Lee Pace and Michael Rooker as villains.The movie is barreling towards a late-June shoot in the U.K. with James Gunn behind the camera.
Details for Gillan’s role were not revealed, although it is known she will play the film’s lead female villain.
I’ve never found the Guardians Of The Galaxy all that interesting as a reader. But I do love Karen Gillan. (It’ll be interesting to see her as a villain.)
