Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3-star Zoe Saldana reveals update to Gamora directly from the comics

Production is well underway on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and it looks like Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is getting a little new look. Wednesday morning, Saldana had an early ring time on the set and wasted time writing on Instagram. In one of the photos that the Guardians star shared, she could be seen with gold makeup around her eyes, a nod to the character’s classic cartoon look.

“Gamora felt sweet! #Nofilter,” Saldana said Wednesday.

Marvel Studios has taken some liberties with the design of the Guardians characters, especially people like Gamora and Nebula. At one point, some concept art emerged from former Marvel Studios visual development artist Charlie Wen, who portrayed the character as a blue-skinned alien.

“I was playing with a modified cloak design mixed with roomy leggings held by simple practical ribbons,” Wen wrote of his design in 2018. “This should give the feeling of an assassin with a mixture of the practical and the flashy. In some of these early concepts of Gamora, like Rocket, was my responsibility to create a new design realm for MCU through the design of characters and key moments, so much of my focus was primarily on setting the tone and feel for the Guardians series.I moved up.the color saturation a lot for this movie. James (Gunn) and I had talked about having a colorful space epic. “

Gamora has had the yellow around her eyes at pretty much every step of the way in Marvel’s source material, from her first appearance in strange tales # 180 back in June 1975. The character still wears the yellow eye look, even in the latest comics from Al Ewing and Juan Frigeri.

The first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies are now streamed on Disney + while Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will hit theaters on May 5, 2023. I’m Great and Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special has not yet received release dates.
