Karen Gillan is re-entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe but this time it won’t be in a “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie.
Rumours were sparked that her character Nebula would be part of the upcoming sequel “Thor: Love and Thunder” when she shared a video on Instagram Story in which she was landing in Sydney, Australia — where the Chris Hemsworth-starring film is being shot.
The former “Doctor Who” star confirmed those rumours in a subsequent Instagram Story video.
In response to a fan’s query whether she was wearing a wig to reprise the role (she previously shaved her head), Gillan revealed she was going to be playing Nebula but would be using a bald cap this time out.
Showing off her new haircut, Gillan explained that it’s her actual hair and not a wig.
According to Gillan, she “cut it the other day in preparation for Nebula so that we don’t have to, like, get so much hair into the bald cap, because I have so much hair it’s unbelievable, like, it’s just so thick.”
