Zoe Saldana Talks to Empire About the “Bittersweet,” ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’
One of the stars of the franchise’s first two installment’s Gamora is set to return for the third and final ride for the now-iconic team, as Zoe Saldana talks to Empire about the “Bittersweet,” Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
There is perhaps not a single MCU franchise that has been as consistently beloved, ambitious, creative, and genre-defining, as the James Gunn-helmed Guardians of the Galaxy.
From its very beginnings, the renegade style and process that Gunn employs has crafted a world so unique that it so perfectly exists within itself; all the while, crafting a beautiful and humorous cosmic sandbox for the whole of the MCU to engage with.
One of the film’s stars recently spoke about how fantastic this final take on these characters is, and how hard it has been to say goodbye, as Zoe Saldana talks to Empire on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Speaking of the finality of the film, Saldana stated, “It’s bittersweet; after all those years of complaining about that green make-up, I find myself already nostalgic about it.”
“There’s a lot of melancholy here, but also pride that we’ve achieved something great.” Zaldana continued, “James Gunn has written a beautiful story, thas makes us emotional eleven as we shoot it.
Speaking of her character specifically, Saldana noted, “She began as this warrior wanting to get out a very toxic parental relationship, then she finds the Guardians, whoa re dysfunctional-ish as well, but they’re okay.”
Saldana continues, “She learns a lot and finds this bigger purpose. Then her dad comes and [Expletive] everything up. She dies she’s brought back, but it’s not her. I think Gamora’s a little confused, I have to say! But James has weaved this wonderful story around the character and every character.’
The highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is currently slated for a May 2023 release date, and fans cannot wait to see just what’s in store for the final adventure of these beloved characters.
