We know that Nebula (Karen Gillan) is going to play a role in Avengers: Infinity War. At the moment her and her sister Gamora (Zoe Saldana) are the only ones who know what Thanos (Josh Brolin) is really capable of. She is featured pretty heavily on the teaser poster and Gillan has revealed during a panel at Florida Supercon (via ComicBook.com) that we’re going to learn more about her past.
“Without giving away any spoilers,” Gillan explained, “we’re definitely going to continue the arc for Nebula and find out more about her past. And actually, we’re going to find out that it’s even worse than we know.”
The things that Nebula described in the Guardians sequel was already pretty harrowing so the idea that it was somehow worse is not a fun thing to hear.
“We’re going to see her confront all of it.” Gillan revealed. “It’s going to be like an emotional explosion.”
That type of emotional explosion might not be a good thing for Nebula. We know that she’s eager to kill Thanos but Thanos is not going to be killed easily. If there was a person that could die in this battle it would be her. It would be nice if she at least got a little closure for the hell that Thanos put her through first. Also, hints about Nebula’s past could also lead us to learning more about Gamora who hasn’t shared much about her time under Thanos yet.
