Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star Could Play This DC Character Because of One Little Similarity

Sometimes looking alike is really everything.

Karen Gillan’s career skyrocketed in the US after she appeared in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Nebula — and since 2014 she appeared in nothing less than 7 of the MCU’s superhero movies.

Now that Nebula’s story is over and Gillan is free to sign up for any project she wants, she was thinking in particular about another famous superhero franchise — which is the MCU’s biggest rival.

Though it doesn’t really mean a possible feud — quite the contrary.


In one of her recent interviews the actress revealed that she’d be down to play Poison Ivy, especially if the plot essentially comes to the character’s intimate relationships with Harley Quinn. As she specified herself, Gillan’s personal interest for Poison Ivy doesn’t really have a deep meaning — just the fact that both of them have red hair.

So far there’s nothing to say about the actress’s chances for portraying the DC character, but her shift from the MCU to the DCU may be more possible than it seems to be. DC Studios is currently run by none other than James Gunn who directed all the recent films for Guardians of the Galaxy’s universe.

This implies that Karen’s good relationships with the director she already worked with may help her bring her dream role to the screens; on top of that, in another interview the actress admitted she’d love to collaborate with Gunn on yet another movie.


One more reason to cheer up for Karen is that James Gunn has already hired some of his MCU’s colleagues for working with him on a DC film — the fact that brings the actress even closer to a potential big role.

Though Gillan confessed she hadn’t yet talked to Gunn about her possible arrival to the DCU universe, the chances are that they’ll eventually come to this conversation anyway.
