Karen Gillan Reveals Her April O'Neil From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cosplay

Karen Gillan has become an international superstar thanks to her role as Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and like many of her co-stars, she's managed to pivot from Marvel to another valuable blockbuster franchise. Gillan joined Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black in the Jumanji reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - and now she's coming back for the sequel film, Jumanji: The Next Level. Well the Jumanji 2 cast was in Mexico doing the press junket for the film, and Gillan's choice of wardrobe quickly went viral.

Take a lot at Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Endgame star Karen Gillan, dressed in an outfiit that looks like it could be cosplay of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles character, April O'Neil!
