Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy

Zoe Saldana expresses interest in playing an evil version of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Speaking at a panel at ACE Comic Con (via CBR), Saldana said she’d quite like the opportunity to play Gamora as a villain in the upcoming MCU movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

“The technical answer is, it all depends on what Marvel and James Gunn desire to do with the Guardians and with Gamora’s fate. There’s a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians, but there’s also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora. I’ve never seen that and she’s, you know, she’s considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy, so I would want to see what that wrath looks like also because it would just give me layers to sort of work on. But yeah, I want her to get back to the Guardians.”

Though she died in Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame ended with Gamora’s fate unknown. After all, a more lethal version of her from 2014 had been transported into the relative present before she was convinced by the present incarnation of her sister Nebula to turn against Thanos. But despite that late-game change, this Gamora remains unsure of her motivations, and thus disappeared before she would ahem to face people she doesn’t know, even if they know her.

In the comics, Gamora is considered the deadliest woman in the galaxy, a feared assassin who is a villain almost as often as she is a hero. In fact, Gamora was responsible for last year’s “Infinity Wars” event, when she murdered Thanos and collected the Infinity Stones herself. The MCU has never really explored the dark side of Gamora, preferring instead to portray her as a badass love interest for Star-Lord.

Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 does not currently have a release date. The film is reportedly scheduled to begin production in February 2021.
