The latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 TV spot shifts the spotlight to the movie’s daughters of Thanos themselves, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Marvel Studios is pushing full-speed ahead with its marketing for the film at this stage in the game; with everything from images from the Guardians sequel to additional international Guardians 2 trailers making the rounds now, with but a few weeks left until the movie opens in theaters.
While Gamora’s adopted sister Nebula – insomuch as Thanos kidnapping the pair as children and raising them as assassins makes the two of them sisters – fought the Guardians in the first movie, things will change in the sequel. The latter reluctantly joins the Guardians in the sequel, allowing the film to show a different side of Nebula (though not one that’s all sunshine and daisies).
Marvel Studios have released a new TV spot (see above) highlighting the contentious relationship between Gamora and Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Given their upbringing, it’s hardly surprising the two have some anger issues. Still, Guardians franchise writer/director James Gunn has always said his movies are about family. True to the film’s theme, the sisters will do the one thing families do best: fight. Of course, as intergalactic warriors, their fights involve more explosions than your typical Thanksgiving dinner.]
Gunn has also stated that certain elements of the Guardians 2 marketing won’t be in the actual film. As such, it’s possible the main joke in this new TV spot (involving Gamora and Nebula) won’t even make it to the final cut of the movie. With that in mind, Saldana has said that Nebula is quite “bitter and resentful” in the Guardians sequel, so there should be plenty in the way of scenes where Gamora winds up giving her angry sister a mouthful (and vice versa), during the film.
As for anyone who’s wondering whether Nebula will survive the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (along with the main heroes in the film) – it’s already been confirmed that Nebula will appear in Avenger: Infinity War, with Gillan having filmed some Infinity War scenes already. That means that she and Gamora will get more than one chance to work out their issues concerning Thanos, while at the same time gardening (sorry, make that guarding) Earth and the rest of the galaxy from their Infinity Stone-hungry “father”.
