Guardians of the Galaxy has added Karen Gillan to the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Gillan played Amy Pond, Doctor Who’s assistant for a number of years, and has now signed on to star in the James Gunn-directed film. Details about her role are scarce, but she is said to be playing a villain along with Lee Pace and Michael Rooker.
Gillan joins the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, which includes Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly. This is one of the most ecclectic casts for a comic adaptation that I have seen. If you have not seen Gunn’s Super, then you truly need to rent it.

The film opens on August 1, 2014! Who do you think Gillan will play in Guardians of the Galaxy?
