Zoe Saldana Says Ending GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Would Be A ‘Huge Loss For Marvel’

By Movieguide® Contributor

It looks like Zoe Saldana isn’t ready to say goodbye to the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY just yet. 

While appearing on The Playlist’s “Discourse” podcast, the actress, who played Gamora in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movies, was asked if she was “done” with the character. 

“I mean, so far, I think that she is [gone for good] for me, but I don’t think Gamora has gone for good,” Saldana explained

She continued, “I would think it would be a huge loss for Marvel if they didn’t find a way to bring back the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. It’s just such a fan-favorite group of misfits, you know?”

“And then at the helm, they had a voice like James Gunn’s writing—which is just so marvelous for and very specific for this genre,” Saldana added. “And it’s so great for this genre as well. So, I would be the first one in the first row to sort of celebrate when the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY comeback.”

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 was Saldaña’s last appearance as Gamora. A portion of the Movieguide® review reads:

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 has some of the most moving, gripping, funny, redemptive content in any Marvel movie. There are at least three positive references to God and some allusions to Heaven and its beauty. The movie also promotes compassion, courage, sacrifice, standing up to evil, doing the right thing, repentance, and family. 

Saldana has previously spoken about her decision to step away from the role of Gamora, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t think this is the end for the Guardians. It is the end for me, for Gamora.”

She added that she had initially only planned to appear in 2014’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. 

In addition to her role in the Marvel universe, Saldaña is also part of the STAR TREK franchise as Uhura. The actress shared her hopes for a fourth STAR TREK movie, saying, “I still have hope [it will happen].”

“I had a wonderful experience through and through and through the three times that I was a part of that team,” she continued. “I know that they’re always trying to sort of aim to wrangle everybody together, but I also know that Paramount is working on a new sort of fresh take on STAR TREK, which I think is such a wonderful franchise that should live for a very long time, whether or not us as the original remake cast can come back. I don’t know, but I certainly hope so.”
