The cast for Marvel‘s new film Guardians of the Galaxy continues to boggle our minds, just because they’re putting together such a crazy diverse cast. Now another random and familiar face is inches away from joining the cast, and that is Zoe Saldana.

Now Zoe Saldana in some ways has been playing forms of super powerful women in film, between Uhura and her characters in Colombiana and AvatarSince she’s so used to playing such tough, kick-ass women it only makes sense that she plays Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. For those of you who may not know, Gamora is the extraterrestrial equivalent to Wolverine, possessing a healing ability along with super strength. She’s been raised by the villain Thanos and has a slightly shaky relationship with the rest of the Guardians due to her allegiance to her adoptive father. It wouldn’t be too surprising if she was placed as possibly one of the main characters of the comic if the writers decide to focus on her first big story arc in Guardians.

The rest of the cast for Guardians of the Galaxy so far includes Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer and Chris Pratt as Star Lord. There’s still a couple more main characters that they have to cast. Some fans may have been hesitant to fully get behind Guardians of the Galaxy but after the casting of Zoe Saldana, maybe they’ll have a little more faith in the production. That and it sounds like this picture could be an absolute blast to watch. A Marvel sci-fi space adventure with humor mixed in? Yeah, we’re in.

Do you agree with the casting choices made so far for Guardians of the Galaxy?
