With a month to go before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theatres, many are anticipating what exciting new relationships the Guardians will explore en route to saving the galaxy.
Franchise star, Zoe Saldana spoke with Comicbook.com about the relationship between Thanos’ adopted daughters.
If you need a refresher on how the pair of assassins got along in the first film, the only way to describe the relationship would be highly hostile. It was clear that Gamora was Thanos’ favorite, leaving Nebula in a constant state of jealousy.
According to Saldana, things will become even more difficult this time around. Saldana describes Gamora and Nebula’s dynamic as:
“I think it’s definitely volatile when it starts. Which is to be expected. And then you’re gonna go in depth into understanding where they’re both coming from, which I find really interesting. And I can’t wait for you guys to see it unfold. Nebula’s definitely a tough cookie, man. And she has a lot more issues than Gamora does. I mean, I guess I just feel like Gamora at least has friends.”
Saldana also praised director, James Gunn on what Gunn did in reference to the two characters and how he genuinely listened to the fans. She said:
“When it comes to her relationship with Nebula, I appreciate what James Gunn did. He definitely heard what the fans were saying, you know. To see this relationship extensively unfold and see what they’re about and, I mean, but through their relationship, you getting like a closer idea of what Thanos is really about. I think it’s really interesting to open up that window. And he certainly has with this sequel.”
Saldana also had nothing but praise for her co-star, Karen Gillan, who portrays Nebula in the films. In regards to Gillan, Saldana shared these words:
“You know, Nebula is just she’s just lethal and Karen really delivers in this movie. More than she did in the first one. I mean, she was so good in the first movie that James couldn’t kill her off. He had to find a way to bring her back, which I really appreciate.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely excited to see Gamora and Nebula’s dynamic play out on the big screen.
