Film: Guardians of the Galaxy

Nebula is played by actress Karen Gillan in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.  She is an adversary that has connections to both Gamora and Thanos.  Karen made a bit of noise at Comic Con when she revealed her shaved head from playing Nebula.

Nebula is one of Thanos's daughters who is loaned out to Ronan to help him retrieve the Infinity Power Stone.  Nebula seeks out her rival fellow Thanos adoptee Gamora.  Gamora has betrayed Thanos and stolen the stone to give it to another party.

During the final battle over the planet Xandar, Nebula battles Gamora.  Nebula is beaten but manages to find a ship and escape.

Film: Avengers Age of Ultron
In the film, Tony Stark has a vision caused by the Scarlet Witch where all of the Avengers are dead and Captain America's shield is broken.  This could be a future event as it sounds similar to events that occure in the Infinity War comic event.  In this vision there is a woman who looks similar to Nebula in the background.

Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2
James Gunn has said Nebula is heavily featured in the Guardians sequel.  He was asked if Karen Gillan was required to do her make up very much.   His response was yes that Nebula was heavily featured and it required her to do the make up for nearly everyday of shooting.
Gunn has previously said that vol 2 is about family so Nebula's use will likely be the focus of Gamora's arc.
