We were all but positive Zoe Saldana would be cast as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy, and she’s officially moved from being “in talks” to confirming her involvement. “I’m going to be green!” she exclaimed in the first of these two Star Trek press videos, and had only praise for director James Gunn, adding, “I just met James Gunn in person this week and I think that he’s the best director to be making this film.“
In this next video Saldana goes over much of the same info as the first, but she does confirm Gamora will be realized not through motion capture but by her getting the green makeup treatment. Woo-hoo! Practical effects FTW!
Guardians of the Galaxy is expected to released August 1st, 2014. Are you happy with Saldana as Gamora? What do you think her make-up will look like?
