Some stars don’t mind the spotlight while others like to keep things a little more low-key. You can definitely put Guardians of the Galaxy star Karren Gillan in the latter category, as she managed to keep her May 2022 wedding to comedian Nick Kocher secret for nearly a year. She took to Instagram to share the beautiful photos of her Scottish wedding, complete with a flowing wedding dress and a bagpipe player:

From the photos, it definitely looks like Karen Gillan and her new husband got to share a quiet and intimate ceremony. Which is good because she’s probably been slammed with press with her MCU threequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 coming out this year. The film is set to be a pretty epic conclusion to the Guardians trilogy James Gunn started back in 2014.

But before we see Karen Gillan in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we’ll get to see her in the upcoming film Late Bloomers. Late Bloomers follows a young Brooklynite who, after drunkenly breaking her hip, ends up having to care for a cranky, elderly Polish woman. Lisa Steen directs the film with a script by Anna Greenfield.

Along with Karen Gillan, the cast of Late Bloomers includes Talia Balsam, Kevin Nealon, Jermaine Fowler, Lori Tann Chinn, Max Jenkins, and her (semi) new husband Nick Kocher. That film is set to come out on March 10. Which will be just a couple of months out from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

There’s no way of knowing at this point, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could end up being Karen Gillan’s last appearance as Nebula. The threequel will be James Gunn‘s last film in the MCU, and he has already said not everyone is making it out alive. While Nebula isn’t necessarily at the top of everyone’s guesses for who might kick the bucket, she’s certainly not safe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will see the Guardians facing off with Chukwudi Iwuji’s High Evolutionary, whose history with Rocket (Bradley Cooper) has led people to theorize Rocket might be the one to go. Dave Bautista has also said that he is ready to leave the MCU, which means Drax might be on the chopping block too. Those two dying seems more likely than Karen Gillan’s Nebula, but we won’t know until we know.

Along with Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, and Bradley Cooper, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 brings back Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Vin Diesel as Groot. Other returning actors include Elizabeth Debicki, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, and Maria Bakalova. The film will also introduce Will Poulter as the long-anticipated Adam Warlock.

We’ll get to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in theaters on May 5. We’ll just have to wait until then to find out if Karen Gillan has a future in the MCU. Stay tuned for more news on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the MCU in the meantime.
