Speaking recently to Variety, actress Zoe Saldaña talked about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 being her last portrayal of Gamora. When asked if the film would be her final entry in the MCU, she laughed. “I can never say no to anything, but that green makeup? I wouldn’t be upset if it didn’t happen again. I miss Gamora but I don’t miss 3:30 a.m. calls and five-hour makeup sessions and trips to the dermatologist afterwards.”

Saldaña acknowledged the aspects of playing Gamora that she most enjoyed and valued, however. “Every time that you know that 8-year-old or that dad and mom or those generational fans that remind me that what I did was special to them, it makes me not be cynical about Marvel,” she stated. “It makes me understand that younger audiences should stop being overlooked. They have feelings too and if something impacts them, just because we consider it stupid or immature or cheeky, doesn’t mean it’s not special.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is slated to arrive in theaters on May 5, 2023. Fans can see Saldaña as Gamora a little earlier in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ this Christmas, however.
