In an interview with MTV, Karen Gillan (Nebula) talked about her fight scene with Zoe Saldana (Gamora) and how great fan reaction has been for the movie.
"Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie. They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that….(Zoe) is really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's really amazing at all of that stuff. She barely required any rehearsal, she was like, 'I can do this.' I required two months of rehearsals every day that I wasn't shooting, because I looked like spaghetti when I started….This is the integral one for my character, because it's not just a physical battle. Their relationship goes very deep, and there's a huge history between them. So there's a lot more to it than just the physical."â€‹
"I always had total faith in the project, because the people who are making it are so brilliant, and have a long history of great films. So I knew it was in great hands. I just think it's a new direction for Marvel, it's really, really funny, It's not taking itself seriously at all. It's tongue in cheek. And just to see people be excited about that new tone is cool."
Gillan added "Okay, so Nebula does not find herself funny, I find her hilarious. But she can't find herself hilarious, that's not scary."
"An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance."

Reilly, Glenn Close as 'Nova Prime Rael' and Benicio del Toro as 'The Collector'.
