Zoe Saldana may turn herself green this time for Guardians Of The Galaxy

With experience donning blue skin in Avatar and whatever you want to call this in the Nina Simone biopic, Zoe Saldana may soon be dipped in an all-new coat of paint to play the green-skinned Gamora in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. Chris Pratt and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista have already been cast as Star-Lord and Drax The Destroyer, respectively, and now Saldana is negotiating to join them as the adopted daughter of Thanos—a relationship complicated by the self-doubt that maybe Thanos would love his real daughter more, and also because he’s a supervillain trying to kill everyone in the universe. Anyway, provided Saldana does not find a better offer to paint herself a more attractive shade elsewhere, maybe a nice lavender, that leaves only two remaining Guardians to be cast: the tree-man Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Though of course, these characters will likely be portrayed through CGI/motion-capture, given that there are so few tree-men and wisecracking raccoons who don’t prefer stage work to the vulgarities of film.
