Zoë Saldaña Confirmed For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms the casting of Zoë Saldaña and a few other assumptions about Guardians of the Galaxy. It appears the film shares a few elements with the new comic series from Brian Michael Bendis.




Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios leader Kevin Feige, confirmed Zoe Saldana for Guardians of the Galaxy and confirmed some previously assumed points about the film's storyline. In the concept art to the right, that's a young Peter Quill having his first extraterrestrial encounter with aliens before he's whisked away into space. Feige reiterated a few previously made statements about Guardians of the Galaxy, reaffirming his love of Star Wars and Star Trek and that Marvel always wanted to make a space movie. He also goes on to say that the film is set within Marvel continuity but it occurs on the other side of the universe. Feige goes on to state that he thinks "audiences will respond to an alien Zoë Saldaña - because they did respond to that one time before [with Avatar]," so consider the negotiations for the Star Trek Into Darkness actress to play Gamora a done deal.



Guardians of the Galaxy is a Phase II Marvel Studios film set for release on August 1, 2014. The film will be directed by James Gunn who will work off a script penned by Gunn, Chris McCoy and Nicole Perlman. Chris Platt will star as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, with other members of the cast including Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Ophelia Lovibond.
