Star Trek Into Darkness star Zoe Saldana recently talked about the character that she'll be playing in Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora. I just assumed since the character she plays is an alien that she would get a CGI motion capture makeover, but in a recent interview with Total Film she reveals that she'll actually sport the green body makeup. She seems excited to be a part of it, and I'm sure she'll be great in the role!
In the comics, Gamora is the adopted daughter of the supervillain Thanos, and she's the last of her species. I'm not sure if they plan on changing that up for the film, but her powers include superhuman strength and agility with an accelerated healing factor.
The plan is to start shooting the movie this June, and it will be released in theaters on August 1st, 2014.
