There are only a few actors who manage to successfully traverse through different fandoms and Karen Gillan is one of them. The 29-year old Scottish actress rose to fame for portraying Amy Pond in "Doctor Who" and broke through American mainstream pop culture in 2014 with her role as Nebula in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy." Originally a character who was a supposed to be killed off in the film, Nebula came back stronger than ever in this year's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," where she made amends with her adoptive sister, Gamora (Zoe Saldana). Gillan is set to reprise her role for the third time in next year's "Avengers: Infinity War," where she's set to find a new BFF.

Who that character remains a secret, but Gillan did hint that Nebula will finally gain a friend in next year's outing.

Karen Gillan on other roles she wants to play

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" star Karen Gillan has appeared in several other films, including "We'll Take Manhattan" in 2012, "Not Another Happy Ending" and "Oculus" in 2013, and "The Big Short" in 2015. She's also set to star in the "Jumanji" reboot with The Rock. The actress did admit, however, that she would love to cross over to another fandom someday. She was recently on hand during the Florida SuperCon, where she admitted that she would love to play a DCEU character one day, Comic Book reported. When asked about it, she said that she would love to play "a female Joker." The actress gushed, "This is my calling!

Somebody make a call for me and let them know I’m available."

'Flashpoint' features female Joker

In this year's "Suicide Squad," the Joker was famously played by Jared Leto. However, a female Joker was already featured in a 2011 comic book series called "Flashpoint." According to Screen Rant, the female Joker was, in fact, Martha Wayne in this alternate universe where Bruce Wayne was murdered and his father, Thomas became Batman.

Martha became the Joker after facing her son's untimely death.

James Gunn film wins its first two awards

In other "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" news, the James Gunn-helmed film had just won its first two awards in the recently concluded Teen Choice Awards. Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in the film, won an award for Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor Award.

This is the first time Pratt has made a public appearance since his split with his wife, Anna Faris. The film also won Choice Sci-Fi Movie, which was a no-brainer given how much it earned at the box office ($861.7 million, for those who are curious). Pratt and Karen Gillan are reprising their roles in "Avengers: Infinity War," which comes out on May 4, 2018.
