As the Marvel Cinematic Universe is ramping up its future with its Phase 4 and beyond, several stars are preparing to return to their roles as superheroes as well as the whole new breed of heroes and villains yet to come. One of the issues, however, has been the global pandemic, which put a halt to pretty much all of Hollywood. But, as the world slowly conforms to the ‘new normal’, studios are getting back to work, as safely as possible. One such film is Thor: Love and Thunder, which has the cast quarantining before beginning production. One such star, Karen Gillan, got a little bit of a make over before she gets ready to join the film.

Gillan shared a look at her new hair cut as she quarantines before shooting her scenes for the fourth Thor film. Karen returns as Nebula, with the Guardians of the Galaxy making an appearance. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, we saw Thor join the cosmic misfits. But, now it’s time to return to Earth. Gillan explained that her hair cut is to help with the bald cap for her alien cyborg look. Instead of shaving her head like she did for the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, she has learned the wonders of the make up artists and the joy of a bald cap. However, Karen admits that she typically has a ton of hair. Her new cut thins it out and shortens it so that the cap can fit correctly.
It is great to see that the MCU is getting back on track and films like Thor: Love and Thunder are beginning production, letting fans know that more amazing stories are soon to come. And, it’s great to see Karen Gillan getting ready to play Nebula once again, a role she has really grown into and has made a fan favorite.
