Next year we will finally see The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy share the screen together when they join forces in Avengers: Infinity War. The third installment in the Avengers franchise is underway and one of the Guardians members that we will be seeing in this film is Zoe Saldana as she reprises the role of Gamora.
In a recent interview with Collider, Saldana was asked about what the Guardians bring to the Avengers and what roles they play in this dynamic. She also chatted about working with the Russo brothers who are directing the third Avengers film, which marks as the directing duo’s third Marvel film.
“[The Russos are] fantastic. I’m a sucker for siblings that work together and make it work. I’m one of three sisters and we have our own production company. They do a fantastic job. They’re not shying away from the drama that an undertaking [that involves] bringing all the characters in the Marvel universe together is going to be for them. And they’re understanding the dramatic beats and they’re showcasing it, and obviously it’s gonna have a lot of action and everything, but also as Guardians being a part of it, we’re providing that levity and I think that it’s gonna make the movies more interesting.”
“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”
