Marvel Studios might have been trying its best to keep Avengers 4 secrets from leaking online, but it seems like the cast of the film just can’t help but send out various hints and teases to the Marvel fanbase.

Though the spoilers usually come from the usual suspects Spider-Man actor Tom Holland and Hulk star Mark Ruffalo, it seems like the latest tease actually comes from Guardians of the Galaxy actress Karen Gillan.

Marvel fans know that Gillan’s Nebula is going to try her best to get back at Thanos in Avengers 4, and thanks to the Doctor Who star, it looks like we might know who she’s going to team up within the film.

Taking to Instagram earlier today, Gillan decided to share a photo of herself in the makeup room of Avengers 4 preparing for her role as Nebula in the film. While the image seems innocent enough, fans get to see the actress posing with a sculpt of Mantis star Pom Klementieff’s head and the hashtags on her post seem to tease a team-up between the characters.

Could Mantis be the ally that Gillan teased Nebula would get during the promotional run for Avengers 4?

Though it seems unlikely that she’ll be spending a lot of time with Mantis knowing that the character turned to dust during the final arc of Avengers: Infinity War, fans speculate that the two might get to team up during flashback sequences. Of course, we won’t really know till Marvel makes a confirmation, so let’s just wait and see what happens.

Avengers 4 hits cinemas May 3, 2019.
