Here’s your ‘sort of’ first look at Ayesha in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

January 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments


It looks like, in the now time-honoured fashion, the villain of a major movie has been revealed… by a toy line.

The new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 toy line in the tweet below features Ayesha and, after an image was tweeted to director James Gunn, he confirmed it is Ayesha, which has everyone guessing this is out first look at the movie’s villain, albeit as a distorted looking figure.

And, given here appearance in the comics (above) we can certainly see the similarities.

Who is she? Well, according to The Marvel Wiki: “Kismet, also known as Paragon, Her, and Ayesha, is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She exists in Marvel’s main shared universe, known as the Marvel Universe. Ayesha will appear in the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki.”

She is similar in abilities to Adam Warlock, the character who in the comics, stops Thanos in the Infinity Gauntlet story arc. Is this all being set up? Well, we reckon it’s not entirely impossible…


Then Gunn replied:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
