Earlier this month, Scottish actor Karen Gillan revealed that she was arriving in Sydney on her Instagram account. That naturally led to speculation that she was joining the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder alongside other Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista.
Whilst there hasn’t been any official word from Marvel Studios that Gillan will appear in the film, the actor revealed in an Instagram Story that she will return as Nebula in the upcoming Thor sequel.
Seemingly posting from her hotel room, the star took part in a recent trend that sees users address assumptions made about them by their followers. One fan suggested that she was “wearing a wig in preparation” for a film role. Gillan replied: “I’m not, this is the real deal. This is my hair.” She went on to reveal that she had cut her hair shorter to make it easier to get her into the bald cap she wears when playing Nebula.
Rumours of other characters that are set to make a return for the Thor sequel have gathered pace in recent months. The most surprising report being that A-Lister Matt Damon will play a role in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently scheduled to release on February 11th, 2022.
