Amy Pond, you bad, bad girl.
So we already knew that Doctor Who's ultimate ginger, Karen Gillan, was cast in Guardians of the Galaxy and that, so far as we know, she's playing the lead, female villain. But what villain is she playing?
Well, according to a clipping from an as-yet-unidentified Scottish newspaper, her role has been revealed.
Just in case you're struggling to read the text:
Karen Gillan will have to be in good shape for her role as a gold bikini-clad alien villain in the Marvel comics superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy. The former Doctor Who star will play Angela, a flame-haired, sword-wielding bounty hunter. The 25-year old Scot – the Time Lord’s companion Amy Pond – begins filming in London later this summer.
So how did this story break? Did Karen Gillen just trust the wrong person? In any event, we're willing to entertain this as the truth, especially because Angela is just coming to the Marvel Universe right now at the close of the huge Age of Ultron 10-issue event series. It's possible that this is a little too soon, or the deal that Marvel brokered to bring this character into the fold has larger implications than any of us realized.
In any event, we'd be pretty excited to see Gillan take on such a tough-as-nails character. How about you?
