Taking this one with a big ol’ grain of salt. Gaimen was given ownership of Angela and he took her to Marvel and she just recently got introduced into the Marvel Universe… so maybe they want to solidify their rights to her by putting her in a movie? Maybe this is just a fan-boy hoax. It’s hard to tell sometimes…

I’m just a little split on whether or not this is a hoax or not, but even if it isn’t, that doesn’t mean it’s true – and, technically, I suppose, even if it is, that doesn’t mean it’s false. In all cases, though, it’s an interesting bit of gossip. And it’s an intriguing possibility.

A thread on the NeoGaf forums, flagged up by Screen Rant, featured the following image. It’s apparently a clipping from an unknown Scottish Newspaper.

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, did Gillan tell a friend who told a friend who told a local journalist? Is the source really “a Marvel insider”? Did this clipping ever really exist? Is Angela actually a “villain”?

This seems altogether too random to be based on nothing… doesn’t it?

But Marvel introduced Angela into their comic book universe very recently indeed. I’m not sure they’d have big screen plans for her so quickly.

Maybe they needed a bounty hunter character and she seemed as a good a choice as any – maybe even better, depending on your personal interest in that whole Slave Leia wardrobe.

I doubt the character line-up for Guardians will remain secret for too much longer. Production on the film kicks off in just the next few weeks for release on August 1st, 2014.
