Up close photo of ‘Doctor Who’ star Karen Gillan as Nebua in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Marvel Studios will continue to crank out films in 2014, first with Captain America: The Winter Soldier in a couple of weeks and then Guardians of the Galaxy in August.

Guardians of the Galaxy film bannerDirector James Gunn’s Instagram proved to be the source of a new photo of one of the stars in the film Monday with the comment: “our interplanetary Clint Eastwood”

Nebula is one of the film’s villains (the other one is Ronan the Accuser, who is played by Lee Pace), and as fans have seen in the trailer, Nebula can throw down. Gillan is completely immersed beneath layers of makeup, which is more visible in this new photo.

Check out the full synopsis below.

The Doctor Who star has previously teased a “big girlie fight sequence” with Zoe Saldana’s character, Gamora,

The film also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, Glenn Close, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. 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 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 Peter 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. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
