Guardians of the Galaxy

by Brett White

Yahoo! Movies has a bit more insight from the "Guardians of the Galaxy" cast about their characters, providing some of the first soundbites from the actors since donning the extensive make-up and new muscles needed for their roles.

"It's the 'Anti-Hero Hero Movie,'" said Zoe Saldana, who plays the deadliest woman in the galaxy — the assassin called Gamora. "These are thieves, rebels, assassins who come together to fight something actually much worse than them. And there's actually a lot of comedy — the levity will be abundant."

But just because the team may bring the quips doesn't mean they don't also bring the pain. In fact, Saldana and Dave Bautista (who plays the appropriately named Drax the Destroyer) believe their squadron of five is more than a match for The Avengers Six.

"We're different than the Avengers," said Saldana. "The Guardians have much 'bigger' powers. We could totally kick Thor and Captain America's ass."

Zoe Saldana Gamora

by Brett White

With Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" set to start filming next month in London, actress Zoe Saldana is anxiously waiting to find out just what her character will look like in the film.

"I'm curious," she admitted to USA Today. "That's what I want I start to check out, too: Am I going to wear leather? Is it going to be spandex? How's my hair going to look?"

These are all valid concerns for the actress, considering that her role as Gamora will prove to be an incredibly physical one. Gamora is known as the deadliest woman in the galaxy, and Saldana has expressed interest in doing pretty much every stunt that she physically can do. But for the majority of time that Gamora's existed in the comics, she's worn outfits that don't really adhere to the laws of physics. Gamora's going to need a costume overhaul similar to the one seen in the new "Guardians" comics (see above right) if she's going to work on the big screen.

While promoting "Star Trek Into Darkness," actress Zoe Saldana talked a little bit about her upcoming role as Gamora in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" to Collider. The actress has opened up about her decision to join the Marvel Universe a few times recently, but now she's able to reflect on her decision to join the ensemble in the wake of "Iron Man 3" making nearly a billion dollars worldwide.

"It makes me excited that I'm going to be a part of something, a world that's going to challenge me – I mean, I'm going to get to play green, I've been a blue one, so might as well be green. I really like the director, James Gunn, [and] I responded very, very well to the script. I loved the casting decisions they've been making so far. I can only hope we kick ass and we have a great time while we're putting the film together. And that the result of that, the audience will respond very positively to it and hopefully we'll be able to make just as much as Iron Man is making right now."

Of course when you have Zoe Saldana in front of you, you have to ask her some questions about "Guardians of the Galaxy" and her character Gamora.

Saldana talks in the video below about her co-star Chris Pratt, getting involved thanks to director James Gunn, and reveals what she thinks is most important about Gamora's look.

"I'm in the process right now of the evolution of conceiving Gamora's look. It's exciting! We're trying to work out comfort also, because you know that I definitely want to be involved in the stunt-doing of my character."

Gamora

by Brett White

Everyone can relax. Zoe Saldana has confirmed her involvement in "Guardians of the Galaxy." The actress was previously reported as being in "final talks" to star as Gamora in next year's Marvel movie, and even though that's code for "pretty much a done deal," we really didn't want to get our hopes up and then dashed. Zoe Saldana is the perfect choice for Gamora, and her involvement only makes us that much more excited for the film.

The confirmation comes from a pair of just-released videos, one coming from the world premiere of "Star Trek Into Darkness." In it, Saldana confirms her involvement, saying that director James Gunn approached her about being in the film.

"I didn't know about the comic, as I normally am clueless that way. My sister sort of informed me of it, I read the script and i was blown away with it."

300

Even if he does officially join the project, Joel Edgerton might not be the lead of "300: Battle of Artemisia" after all, based on a new report that the titular goddess Artemisia is the one at the forefront of the film.

Moviehole has heard that the casting process is about to begin for the role of Artemisia. According to their report, the "300" is now called "300: The Battle of Artemisium," but that doesn't change the fact that Artemisia is the character pulling the strings in the film.

Michonne"The Walking Dead" is done with its first season, but fans of the comic book series can attest to the fact that there are stunning plot twists and excellent characters still on the way — not the least of whom is Michonne.

When she first appears in "The Walking Dead," Michonne is equipped with a samurai sword and two zombies shackled by chains. In other words, this is a woman who means business, proving herself capable of overcoming extreme adversity thanks to quick thinking and ruthless efficiency on the battlefield.

Because of Frank Darabont's affinity for the character, Michonne is a likely candidate to join "The Walking Dead" for season two. If she does indeed join the series, here are five actresses we would love to see in the part. Read More...
