Karen Gillan Hopes 'Drunk Thor' Joins The Guardians Of The Galaxy
Some plot spoilers for Avengers: Endgame can be found in this article. But please note we are three weeks in, if you are a fan, go see the movie already!
Of the myriad characters present in Avengers: Endgame, actress Karen Gillan had some of the most major moments, as well as some of the most screen time (41 minutes, according to one count). She also wrapped Avengers: Endgame with one version of her character Nebula alive and kicking and she’s already looking forward to the future of the Guardians of the Galaxy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In fact, when she was recently asked about her feelings regarding the future of the Guardians and whether or not that future includes Thor, she answered in the resounding affirmative, noting,
Personally, I’m more into referring to the new and definitely underwhelming Thor as “Fat Thor” rather than “Drunk Thor,” but to each his or her own.
The good news is that Karen Gillan seems all on board with having Thor join the Guardians in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (or some unnamed future venture).
As to whether or not Thor is actually a Guardian now, when last we left off he had hitched a ride on Peter Quill's ship, ending Avengers: Endgame with some funny quips that definitely poked holes into Star-Lord’s ego. Whether or not Thor will be a Guardian moving forward was certainly one of the biggest questions left at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Unfortunately for now, even the writers are passing the buck on the Thor question.
As for Karen Gillan, in general, she seems excited about the way Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is panning out. While Thor’s future is still unclear, the upcoming three-quel has signed on James Gunn again, appeasing the likes of Dave Bautista and many fans. It's a move that made Gillan happy, too, as she also told the LA Times:
As for the status of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Marvel recently announced a slew of upcoming release dates, but didn’t actually tie any specific titles to them. We’re expecting to learn more later this year, specifically this summer, according to Bob Iger. For now, rumor has it the third movie following the Guardians is expected to go into production in 2020.
