A lot of people loved Karen Gillan as Amy Pond in Doctor Who, and now it looks like she’ll be introduced to an even bigger audience, as THR reports she’s joining the growing cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
She’s set to play the film’s lead female villain, although her exact identity was not revealed. Lee Pace is playing the primary villain, who also has not been officially identified, but is believed to be Taneleer Tivan, aka The Collector. Ophelia Lovibond is playing one of The Collector’s henchmen.
Chris Pratt is set to star as the Guardians Of The Galaxy’s leader Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, with Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Zoe Saldana portraying Gamora, and Michael Rooker as Yondu. James Gunn is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Chris McCoy and Nicole Perlman. Production is scheduled to begin next month in the UK.
