Not only does Marvel Studios' upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy have the distinction of starring a talking raccoon and a sentient tree, but it also features something else none of the other Marvel films have had, a female villain. While there was a female cohort in Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy will bring us Nebula as played by "Doctor Who" star Karen Gillan and her character will apparently have a very intense fight sequence with the female hero of the film, Gamora, as played by Zoe Saldana.

"Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie," Gillan said in an interview with MTV. "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."​

Who do you think will come out on top? Gamora or Nebula?

Guardians of the Galaxy features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. The August 1 release stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Gregg Henry, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
