Karen Gillan turns blue for Guardians of the Galaxy trailer and photos

The former Doctor Who star is glimpsed as blue-skinned alien Nebula alongside Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and co in the first trailer for the much anticipated Marvel movie


From time traveller to blue-skinned alien, former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan is getting back to her sci-fi roots in the much-anticipated Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.


Gillan plays kick-ass mercenary Nebula, alongside Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and David Bautista as Drax, with Rocket the Raccoon and Groot voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel respectively.

Meet the rest of the Guardians below and watch the first full trailer, which suggests the movie is not in danger of taking itself too seriously…

“Drax, aka the Destroyer. Since his wife and family were killed he’s been on a rampage across the galaxy in a search for vengeance”

“Gamora: Soldier, assassin, wanted on over a dozen counts of murder”

“Rocket: Wanted on over 50 charges of vehicular theft and escape from lockup”

“Groot: Has been travelling recently as Rocket’s personal houseplant/muscle”

“Peter Jason Quill. He’s also known as Starlord.” “Who calls him that?” “Himself, mostly. He’s wanted on charges of minor assault, public intoxication and fraud” 


Guardians of the Galaxy is in UK cinemas on Friday 1 August
