What happens with Nebula post-Thanos. After all the character first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy has had her entire arc so far based around the triangle between Thanos, her adoptive father, and Gamora her adoptive sister. At first Nebula was dedicated to Thanos and happy to kill her sister. But after being away from Thanos for a time the character began to hate her father and warm up towards Gamora. Nebula is now a member of the Guardians and has seen her father Thanos due twice in two different timelines.
So what is next for Nebula in the upcoming Guardians 3 and Holiday Special? Gillan spoke to iO9 and here is what she said.
“One of the most interesting things about Nebula for me was her relationship with her father and sister,” Gillan told io9 while discussing her new movie, Dual, in theaters this weekend. “And now that her father, Thanos, has been eliminated, he was the source of all of her torment and abuse. It’s really interesting to explore how this character starts to heal and who this character starts to become now that the threat that was always looming over her is gone. So I’ve been having a lot of fun with that.”
The search for Gamora is very likely a factor on the Guardians Holiday Special. It’ll therefore be interesting to see how Nebula’s relationship with Gamora, who isn’t her Gamora, develops. Not to mention the rest of the Guardians crew that Nebula has now spent years with. Hell, even longer with Rocket who she spent 5 blip years with when the rest were dust.
I guess we will find out more about what the Guardians have been up to in Thor: Love and Thunder. I didn’t notice Nebula in the trailer, maybe she isn’t in the movie?
