During an appearance at ACE Comic-Con in Seattle, Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana touched upon the future of her character Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
During the panel, Zoe Saldana was asked about where she hopes to see Gamora end up now that the Guardians following the events of Avengers: Endgame are set to search for her:
“The technical answer is, it all depends on what Marvel and James Gunn desire to do with the Guardians and with Gamora’s fate. There’s a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians, but there’s also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora. I’ve never seen that and she’s, you know, she’s considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy, so I would want to see what that wrath looks like also because it would just give me layers to sort of work on. But yeah, I want her to get back to the Guardians.”
It is interesting to see that Zoe Saldana is interested in exploring an evil version of Gamora. After all, the version of Gamora that we see in Avengers: Endgame is canonically different from the Gamora that Thanos (Josh Brolin) sacrificed in exchange for the Soul Stone in Avengers: Infinity War.
Ultimately, Zoe Saldana wants to see Gamora reunite with the Guardians of the Galaxy given that the team has been a family to her over the last few years. As far as how this factors into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, only time will tell.
Earlier this year, James Gunn was reinstated to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after being previously fired last year following the resurfacing of controversial tweets that were deemed offensive. James Gunn’s reinstatement was celebrated by Zoe Saldana and the rest of her fellow Guardians of the Galaxy co-stars, having signed an official letter requesting Disney would reinstate him to complete his trilogy.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.
Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and several of her fellow Guardians of the Galaxy appeared in Avengers: Endgame. You can read the synopsis for that movie below:

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
