While the new line-up of Guardians looks amazing, it’s even more exciting to think about how certain members will end up joining the team in Guardians of the Galazy Vol.2. It’s pretty clear that Yondu and Nebula will become Guardians before the credits roll and we have a few details explaining how Nebula will go from selfish villain to Guardian in the upcoming Marvel film.
Marvel Studio’s President Kevin Feige recently discussed the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy during a press visit to the set, explaining how Nebula comes back into contact with the Guardians.
“She cut her own hand off, jumped onto a ship, and flew away. She comes back into the story relatively early on. In fact, we realise that the payment for the mission that the Guardians have done on Sovereign is to get Nebula.The Sovereign has captured Nebula, and are doing sort of a prisoner, are exchanging her for the services of the Guardians helping them, and they want to take Nebula back to Xandar, to have her arrested. Things go awry on that journey, and she becomes a much bigger player in the film than she was in the first one.”
Feige then went on to discuss how the relationship between Nebula and her adopted sister Gamora will develop in the second movie.
“You explore that dynamic between them as sisters, as adopted sisters who both clearly were raised in less than ideal circumstances by Thanos, and it’s sort of Nebula’s deciding does she want to kill Gamora or is she going to set aside this sort of internal rage within her. And she does spend some time teaming up with Taserface for much of the movie too.”
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their new-found family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
