All Green Zoe Saldana Knows She Looks Good Like Gamora (Even With A 3:30 Call Time)
After years of waiting, Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is finally in production. Cameras began rolling on the long-awaited trio in November, during which the writer-director James Gunn celebrated with a nice social media post. Meanwhile, Star-Lord actor Chris Pratt says it will be worth the wait. Since production began, Zoe Saldana has dropped some cool behind-the-scenes tidbits on the non-spoiler variety. They mainly focused on full character makeup. Her most recent photo is just as beautiful and shows the actress looking great as her green warrior – even with an incredibly early call time.
Yes, even superheroes take selfies – or at least the actors portraying them do. This is exactly the kind of photo that Zoe Saldana took and then posted on her instagram. The star, who was still in her dress, got a clean shot that beautifully captures her character’s glowing green skin. Below, you can see the unfiltered photo, which the actress cheekily captioned with “Gamora felt cute!”:
I don’t know how she does it, but it looks like the star can rock just about any look, even when covered in green makeup and playing a galactic assassin-turned-hero. But perhaps even more amazing is how early the Marvel Cinematic Universe star has to get up to start filming. In another post, she shared a video and revealed she had a call time of 3:30. Check it out:
The mere thought of having to get up so early is enough to give some people chills. Nevertheless, many of us end up with such a daily routine. It should be noted that unlike most, Zoe Saldana is paid a hefty sum to put into the job. That doesn’t mean a 3:30 a.m. call time is necessarily okay with it, though. But even if that’s the case, these social media posts suggest she’s handling things in stride, as she reprises her role as one of Thanos’ deadly daughters.
Like Guardians Vol. 3 approaches, there are many questions surrounding the elusive Gamora, who was technically killed in 2018 Avengers: Infinity War. A 2014 version of the character would appear in Avengers: Endgame next year again his destiny was left somewhat ambiguous at the end of the film. Fans can take comfort, however, as the next trio will apparently be tackle the history of the alternate timeline.
The return of the fan-favorite character is just one of the things audiences can look forward to in the capsule of James Gunn’s adorable A-hole run. One of the biggest things would have to be the addition of Adam Warlock, who was teased during the end credits of Flight. 2. The powerful being is played by Will Poulter in the MCU, and he has since broken his silence after being cast, saying he feels “very, very lucky and honored” to join the franchise. But as new blood arrives, some fear others will head for the door. And James Gunn has the perfect answer for those who worry about the death of characters.
Gamora’s death from Zoe Saldana was tragic enough, and even now some may still be recovering from that fateful scene. If there’s one thing James Gunn has done, it’s always created meaningful deaths for his characters (like OG Groot and Yondu). That’s something to consider but, for now, let’s just enjoy Gamora’s return and Zoe Saldana blessing us with those great photos and videos (and for such a good part of her day).
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 explodes into theaters on May 5, 2023. Ahead of its release, you can stream the first two films and the remaining installments of the MCU’s Infinity Saga by streaming them on Disney+.
