Guardians 3's Karen Gillan mocks awkward pose on poster
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will soon be on its way to cinemas, but one of its stars has spotted something unusual about the movie's poster.
The poster sees one Guardians team member, Nebula, standing with her elbow in the air and hand seemingly resting behind her head.
Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the upcoming Marvel movie, couldn't help but laugh at herself after seeing her pose in the new promotional material for the film.

Taking to TikTok, former Doctor Who star Gillan poked fun at her appearance and attempted to explain to fans the reasoning behind the quirky pose.
"Okay can anybody out there tell me what I was thinking when I decided to pose like this on an international worldwide poster that will remain for evermore?" the actress remarked. "I remember doing this pose and thinking, 'I think I look pretty cool here'.
"So I take full responsibility for this choice. But oh my god, what am I leaning against? What is my elbow doing?"

"Nope doesn't look good now either does it?" Gillan remarked as she attempted to recreate the pose. "Maybe I should double down and try to make this pose a thing. Maybe I'll do it on a couple of red carpets, see if it takes.
"I stared at it for so long I was like, 'Oh, maybe I’m reaching for a weapon to take out and fight someone', and then I remembered that I'm not wearing a holster or anything that would carry a weapon. So, it's not that either.
"You'll be seeing that pose again somewhere when you least expect it. I'm going to bring it back for its return."
