MCU Star Karen Gillan Said Zoe Saldana's Fighting Skills are Better Than Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, and Chris Hemsworth

The 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy introduced the Guardians to Marvel fans. Along with the Guardians, the science-fiction film also introduced Karen Gillan as Nebula. The first film featured the conflict between her and her sister, Gamora. Their father, Thanos wanted her to be as skilled as Gamora and this led the two sisters to clash throughout the film.

Nebula hated her sister, Gamora, as she was always favored by her father, Thanos, for being more skilled than her. However, Gillan did not feel the same way about her co-star. During her interview with On-Demand Entertainment, the Dual star shared that she enjoyed filming her fight scenes with Zoe Saldana.

When she was asked if she enjoys “taking on boys” for a combat scene or if she enjoyed “having a go at Zoe.” Answering the question, Karen Gillan said that it was more fun to do a girl fight as a lot of films don’t have a girl fight scene.

A still released by USA Today gives fans a clearer look at Nebula’s upgraded arm, which seems less robotic than the rest of her bionic body parts. The arm has a chainlike design. Her upgraded look was first released in the trailer. However, the recently released still gives a clear view of her new arm.

Fans also noticed that her arm in the Holiday Special was not the same as shown in the still and the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer. The threequel is expected to deal with the backstory of the Guardians and fans believe that they would also see the story of how Nebula got her new arm between the events of Holiday Special and Volume 3.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to release on 5 May 2023.
