According to Comic Book Movie on Sunday, "Doctor Who" actress and Time Lord companion will be opposing Star-Lord in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy". There's a new Marvel Studios film still out now of her character Nebula who is a rather evenly matched opponent to Gamora. The photo is a great shot of her straight on and it appears she has lifeless, cold-eyes, but yet very colorful. Gunn has gone all out by making full steel sets on sight and making sure that it has a comedic yet dramatic feel to the film.

She, along with Ronan the Accuser, works for the Mad Titan Thanos and Marvel Studios takes to the stars beyond the earthbound Avengers heroes. Clark Gregg of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. even explained how the Marvel Cinematic Universe is all connected and it appears that the Infinity Stones are being sought out by Thanos to achieve ultimate power in the cosmos. Those who have seen the end tease to "Thor: The Dark World" was a last minute scene that Gunn had thrown together quite quickly near the end of the Alan Taylor directed film.

With the popularity of these films comes a rise in comic book prelude editions that tie into the real life films. Recently a prelude movie comic called, "Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude #1" had given privy to the history that Gamora and Nebula had shared. Apparently, they had been both in league with Thanos and had at one time trying to seek to please him by running rather challenging missions.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is released in theaters Aug. 1 and stars "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt, "Star Trek's" Zoe Saldana as Gamora, "American Hustle's" Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, and "Fast and Furious 7's" Vin Dieself as the voice of Groot.
