This episode of Collider Ladies Night marks a very special occasion. Karen Gillan is officially the show’s first returning guest! Back in 2019, we went heavy on Gillan’s work behind the lens and in the Jumanji franchise, but round two gave us the opportunity to discuss Gillan’s early modeling days, her journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Nebula and, of course, her new Netflix movie, Gunpowder Milkshake.

Gillan leads the film as Sam. Back when she was just 12-years-old, Sam’s mother Scarlet (Lena Headey) was forced to abandon her, leaving Sam to be raised by The Firm, the crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now as an adult, Sam’s a successful and very skilled hit-woman, just like her mother once was. However, when a job forces Sam to choose between The Firm and an innocent young girl (Chloe Coleman), Sam opts to do what’s right, putting a massive target on her back in the process.

Check out this episode of Ladies Night to hear all about how Gillan capitalized on the popularity of Doctor Who, what it's been like developing Nebula with James Gunn, Joe and Anthony Russo and now Taika Waititi, which Gunpowder Milkshake co-star she was geeking out over the most and so much more!
