Zoe Saldana on Gamora's role in Avengers: Infinity War

MAJOR SPOILERS for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. Although we've seen superheroes team up before in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR took things to the next level, with just about every hero in the franchise turning up to take on Thanos (Josh Brolin), but one of the highlights was certainly witnessing the Guardians of the Galaxy meet up with the Avengers. One of the Guardians, Zoe Saldana, spoke with The LA Times about her character's arc in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. Remember, spoilers.

In order to obtain the Soul Stone, Thanos learns that he must sacrifice the thing he loves most, which turns out to be Gamora herself, and the Mad Titan tosses his daughter off the side of a cliff to her death. As this is a comic-book world, there's always the potential for Gamora to return, but Zoe Saldana said that she was told of Gamora's fate at an early stage in the production.

I learned very early on. The producers called me and they told me. And of course there's a shock to your system. I'm so grateful, this run has been amazing, but you're so not even ready for that. But then once some of the things were discussed, I understood that it just makes sense. In order for you to understand the degree of evil that lies within the core of Thanos, you have to circle in on his own children. So I completely understood. I loved being a part of this unforgettable journey.

With AVENGERS 4 already in the bag (that super secret bag), Zoe Saldana obviously knows whether or not Gamora will be back, but she isn't about to spill anything at this stage. "I don't know. [Laughs] For the sake of the devoted fans out there — we don't want to rob them of an amazing experience," Saldana said. "It's all for them that we do what we do and we also protect what we do." If this does end up being Saldana's MCU finale, the actress said that while it was sad to say goodbye, she was also "so happy that I got to play a part in the Marvel Universe, and I also got to play a character that — it has been brought to my attention — is seen as a great role model for young women. And also for young boys. I live for that, that's why I do what I do. So I guess I'm going to cry all the way to "Avatar," you know?" Speaking of AVATAR, Saldana mentioned that they're just about finished with motion-capture production on AVATAR 2 and 3, after which they will move straight into pre-production on the live-action sequences which will shoot for six months in New Zealand.

Place your bets. Will Zoe Saldana return for AVENGERS 4?
