Karen Gillan, best known for her playing Amy Pond in seasons 5-7 of Doctor Who, has been announced to play a role (presumably a villain) in Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, and Lee Pace have already been announced.
Guardians follows a group of interplanetary misfits and criminals who team up to save the galaxy. Or, more likely, save themselves and the galaxy thing just happens on the way. This is a bit of a departure from the typical Marvel superhero fare, but it’s unpredictable nature and potential for world-changing possibilities make me excited. And Karen Gillan is darling, folks.
