Zoe Saldana is Gamora. We really couldn’t imagine playing this well-rounded character better than the spectacular actress. We all wept when Gamora was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, but overjoyed that we at least got her back in some capacity in en d. Which, means we’ll have her in the third Guardians of the Galaxy. So, yay!
But, we may have gotten a different actress for the part. Amanda Seyfried has a well-known career as well, and we’re surmising that she may have been up for the role of Gamora. Seyfried didn’t outright say it, but did say in an MTV interview she turned down a role in the superhero world. One that would have had her “covered in green for six months”. Look below and see if you think she’s talking about Gamora!
“I turned down one [superhero role] once and they haven’t called back since. And it was a big’un. I don’t regret it because I didn’t want to be green for six months out of every year. They tell beautiful stories through superheroes, and my daughter’s now really obsessed with superheroes now, and part of me wishes I’d done it, but the other part of me is like ‘I had a life to live’ and I don’t think I would’ve been happy.”
While Seyfried is a great actress, I think I speak for everyone that we’re happy Saldana has the part. Would you want to have seen Seyfried as Gamora? And would you want Seyfried in the MCU?
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
