10 Karen Gillan Performances You Have To See

21 April 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Karen Gillan has firmly established herself as a formidable on screen force to be reckoned with since she became a household name for her co-starring role in Doctor Who.

After being zapped back in time by the Weeping Angels in Series 7, her career has been going from strength to strength across the (Amy) pond with breakthrough roles in a variety of mainstream movies and TV shows, including a short-lived sitcom which she helmed with enough confidence and gusto to affirm her presence as a lauded leading lady.

Needless to say, Karen has earned herself a large and ever growing legion of dedicated fans and, luckily for them, there’s plenty of her to go around even when she isn’t lighting up the big and small screens (which, in fairness, isn’t that often).

But where does one begin?! Her reputable résumé is bursting at the seams with a »

10 Doctor Who Stars Before They Were Famous

17 April 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Channel 4

Fame can be a fickle friend. One day you’re the star of the BBC’s flagship drama, and the next… you’re… well, not.

Doctor Who actors always find themselves under an intense level of scrutiny when they decide to leave the safety of the Whoniverse behind them as their fans eagerly await their next projects to determine whether or not stepping down as a coveted Earth defender was even worth the hassle.

Usually, it was. Just look at the likes of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, for example, who have gone on to enjoy international acclaim thanks to Doctor Who‘s ever growing popularity across the pond.

But what about their respective journeys to the Tardis? The long and winding road to stardom is turbulent at the very best of times and most actors never manage to secure that one role that catapults them from the »

'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Have More Than One Villain

16 April 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Joss Whedon has been making the press rounds of late to promote his highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1. While this movie appears to be his last Marvel movie in the foreseeable future, the Avengers will return with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2019, which will be directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. During a recent interview with Vulture, Joss Whedon revealed that Thanos (Josh Brolin) won't be the only villain in the two-part Infinity War movie.

"A lot of people were surprised that Thanos wasn't the villains in Avengers 2, but he was never meant to be. He was always meant to be the puppet-master until he was done doing that, and then he'll be the big villain they face off with. Not solely - I'm sure there'll be plenty more [villains] in that monstrous epic, because »

James Gunn: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be about “fathers”

15 April 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn (Slither) has spoken to Vulture about the plot of his Marvel sequel. While attending the Avengers: Age of Ultron (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) premiere, he teased:

“There’s a lot of stuff I’m excited about in the new movie. Listen, I’m still excited about Star-Lord’s character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it’s exciting to go there.”

Although Gunn doesn’t directly say whether the ‘father’ storyline relates to Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill (Chris Pratt) – it could, after all, refer to Gomorra (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula’s (Karen Gillan) relationship to their adopted father/crazed-dictator Thanos (Josh Brolin), or even Drax’s (Dave Bautista) to his murdered child – the smart Units would be that it does. »

James Gunn says Guardians 2 is a tale about fathers with a better soundtrack

15 April 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Aside from taking time to watch the new Daredevil series or see Avengers: Age Of Ultron, James Gunn is knee-deep in finishing the screenplay for Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. Of course, all the usual suspects will return in Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, but Gunn has also let slip a few other morsels lately. He's announced the return of Karen Gillan's Nebula, and more recently talked about what thematic material we can expect to see in »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Story Will Focus on Fathers

14 April 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that the story treatment for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is complete, with James Gunn now working on the actual script itself, as shooting is scheduled to begin in February 2016. Last night, the filmmaker took a break from writing to attend the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere in Hollywood, where he revealed a few new details about the sequel. At the heart of last year's Guardians of the Galaxy was Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) relationship with his mother before she passed away, while introducing the mystery of who his father really is. James Gunn confirmed that while the first movie is about mothers, the second is about fathers.

17 Doctor Who Actors Who Appeared in Marvel Films

8 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Radio Times/Marvel

At first glance, Doctor Who – that long-standing, eccentric British sci-fi series – and the ever-growing list of big bucks adaptations of Marvel comics from varying studios are not immediate bedfellows. Yet, if you think about it, they actually have a fair bit in common.

Both Doctor Who and the likes of The Avengers, Spider-Man and X-Men feature larger-than-life heroes protecting the Earth – and, on occasion, the whole universe – often from alien warlords or invaders, with the help of their loyal friends. And they are both fans of reboots/regenerations. Not to mention the fact that, if the current vogue for science fiction and superheroism holds out, these franchises, owned by the BBC, Disney, Sony and Fox respectively, could keep going on and on.

But did you know that they also share a sizeable chunk of the same cast? No less than 17 actors have crossed over between them, at our count. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 shoot latest

5 April 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 will start shooting in February 2016 - and not in the UK this time...

The initial focus where the Marvel cinematic universe is concerned may be on Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War. Yet whilst those films trundle towards their release dates, James Gunn has been hard at work on Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.

The latest on the film? Well, firstly that Gunn has completed his treatment and outline for the new film, with a large chunk of the script thus mapped out. But now we learn that production on the movie is set to commence in February 2016.

Gunn will once again be returning to the director's chair, only this time, the film won't be shooting in the UK. Instead, as with Ant-Man, the movie will be shot at Pinewood's Atlanta studios in the Us. Karen Gillan is also set to return, »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 to Begin Shooting Next February

5 April 2015 3:15 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

"Guardians of the Galaxy" was a massive hit for Marvel, grossing an unexpectedly high $774 million worldwide. The studio immediately greenlit a sequel, and now, director James Gunn has revealed the current status of the film. According to Gunn, the plan is to begin shooting in February of 2016. But instead of filming at Shepperton Studios in the UK, like the first movie, the sequel will be filmed at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, where "Ant-Man" was shot and the upcoming "Captain America 3: Civil War" will be filmed. Gunn already turned in a treatment for the sequel and had a meeting with Marvel last week. He'll start working on the full screenplay this week, but said that the current draft is already at seventy pages and is just missing some dialogue. He also confirmed that Karen Gillan will return as Nebula and may not need to shave her head this time. "Guardians »

Karen Gillan's Nebula will return for Guardians of the Galaxy 2

5 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to Periscope to offer updates on the Marvel sequel.

Answering fan questions on the live-streaming video app, the filmmaker confirmed that Karen Gillan's alien villain Nebula - the adopted daughter of Thanos - will be back for the follow-up.

Gunn added that he has come up with a way for the ex-Doctor Who star to play the role without shaving her head.

Lee Pace's villain, however, won't be returning. "Ronan is a bad guy, we killed him," Gunn stated. "Not everything is going to happen in the movies the same as the comics."

The director also revealed that he is "very, very far along" with the script for Guardians 2 having completed 70 pages.

"I turned in my treatment," he said. "I'm going to meet about it on Friday and we will start working on the screenplay next week."

4 April 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following his comments last week discussing the early state of the script, filmmaker James Gunn has now spoken a bit more about the "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel with social media service Periscope.

The first film was primarily shot at Shepperton Studios in the United Kingdom, however the new one will be based out of Pinewood Studios in Atlanta where "Ant-Man" was shot and the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" will be filmed. Shooting on the next film is slated to begin February 2016.

Gunn confirmed that he's turned in a treatment for the film, had a meeting about the movie this week, and will start working on the full screenplay next week. That said, there probably won't be that much to do. Gunn's treatment, or "pre-draft version" of the script is "very, very far along" and currently says that it clocks in at seventy pages.

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Shoots February 2016

4 April 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn held an impromptu Q&A session on Periscope after announcing that his upcoming horror script The Belco Experiment had locked in Wolf Creek director Greg Mclean. There, he revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story treatment has been completed and turned into Marvel. Well, the man held yet another impromptu session this weekend, and this time he's confirmed that his hugely anticipated sequel will officially begin shooting in February 2016! He then went onto offer some insight into the return of Karen Gillan as Nebula.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still two years away, set to hit theaters in May 2017. At this point in time, James Gunn hasn't actually revealed any solid plot details, other than the fact that Star-Lord will go searching for his biological dad, who happens to be an alien.

James Gunn Talks Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Start Date, Return Of 'Nebula', And More

4 April 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still two years away, but writer and director James Gunn is keeping fans updated via his various social media accounts. After recently revealing that he's turned in the treatment to Marvel and will meet with them on Friday in order to start working on the screenplay next week, Gunn added that he's currently 70 pages in and called his pitch to Marvel Studios the best experience he's had with one to date. It's still unclear what the sequel will focus on. He also confirmed that Karen Gillan's Nebula will make a return, adding that they may have this time found a way to avoid shaving the head of the former Doctor Who star (which you have to imagine will make her more willing to reprise the role). Interestingly, Gunn also told fans that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will begin production next February and will shoot »

James Gunn Revealed ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 2′ Details Via Periscope Live Stream

3 April 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

James Gunn recently opted for a new video mobile app instead of traditional Hollywood PR tactics when releasing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 news. On April 1, 2015, the director interacted with fans and answered questions about the upcoming film via the live streaming app Periscope.

Introduced in 2014, the iOS app Periscope lets users live stream video broadcasts while viewers leave real-time comments and likes. The app resembles a mobile version of Twitch in that it also lets users record broadcasts to watch at a later date. Twitter apparently saw lots of opportunity with Periscope; the social site ended up acquiring the app on March 13, 2015.

Gunn (who really liked the Screen Junkies’ honest trailer for the first Guardians movie) used Periscope’s live streaming capabilities to broadcast from his home office. Instead of participating in a press call or even using Twitter to answer fan questions, the director utilized Periscope’s comments feature to interact. »

James Gunn Shares ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’ Sequel Details on Periscope

3 April 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In what could become a new trend for how celebrities interact with fans, “Guardians of the Galaxy” helmer James Gunn used the new social-media app Periscope to answer fans’ questions — including details on the upcoming sequel to the Marvel hit.

Periscope, an app that could be described as Twitter meets Snapchat, only with video, allows the user to post a live-stream video while questions and reactions appear on the screen.

Gunn spoke live for around 30 minutes from his office on April 1, answering fans’ questions on everything from how many Marvel comics he has read to who should be the next James Bond.

In terms of details on the upcoming sequel, Gunn wasn’t too specific, but he touched on how the tone would be different, that the script was quite far along and that Karen Gillan’s character, Nebula, would return for the sequel.

He also talked about the original pic during the stream, »
