After the devastating events of Avengers: Endgame, you will be a fool to not know ‘who Gamora is’. Unless of course, you are friends with this guy!
The green-skinned step-daughter of Thanos is an integral part of the MCU and one of the main members of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. With Zoe Saldana acing the role as Gamora, its obvious that Marvel did a pretty good job at casting the right person, right?! But, it now turns out that the studio had someone else in their mind before Saldana.
During a recent interview, the Mamma mia! star, Amanda Seyfried revealed that she could have been Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The actress stated: “I turned down one [superhero role] once and they haven’t called back since. And it was a big’un. I don’t regret it because I didn’t want to be green for six months out of every year. They tell beautiful stories through superheroes, and my daughter’s now really obsessed with superheroes now, and part of me wishes I’d done it, but the other part of me is like ‘I had a life to live’ and I don’t think I would’ve been happy.”
The actress is currently promoting her new movie The Art of Racing in the Rain, which hit theaters this weekend. You can check out the full interview clip from the MTV International YouTube channel below.
