Zoe Saldana Talks About The Guardians Of The Galaxy Being In Avengers: Infinity War


Zoe Saldana says that the Guardians of the Galaxy have something to add to Avengers: Infinity War.

The Guardians of the Galaxy’s second outing has not been released yet, but we already know that we’ll see them next in Avengers: Infinity War. This is very exciting because it will mark the first time that the galactic team will meet the Avengers. Actress Zoe Saldana has now shared some details on how the cosmic heroes will fit into the films.

While talking to Collider, Saldana explained that the Guardians of the Galaxy will bring humor to the upcoming films:

"“[The Russos are] fantastic. I’m a sucker for siblings that work together and make it work. I’m one of three sisters, and we have our own production company. They do a fantastic job. They’re not shying away from the drama that an undertaking [that involves] bringing all the characters in the Marvel universe together is going to be for them. And they’re understanding the dramatic beats and they’re showcasing it, and obviously it’s gonna have a lot of action and everything, but also as Guardians being a part of it, we’re providing that levity and I think that it’s gonna make the movies more interesting.”"

The actress also talked about the pressures of filming on the first day along with the tone that we can expect from both movies:

"“We’re kind of like in shock. It’s too big. In theory, your mind going in you’re like, ‘This is too big. I hope I’m not overstimulated and overwhelmed by its immensity,’ because it’s very big. But to know what they’re doing and the direction that they’re taking, I felt super excited very early on. And I love that the fact that the Guardians were keeping our authentic voices, and that’s gonna be really what’s gonna make our introduction – our participation – special. I love what they’re doing with the rest of the Avengers and their characters and their storylines. It’s gonna be quite dramatic and amazing.”"

This is definitely exciting to hear. The dynamic between the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers is key to these films, and it sounds like the Russos are handling that well. With their work in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, this isn’t too surprising, and with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely penning the scripts, the character’s voices should remain consistent with who they are.

Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters on May 4, 2018, and the Untitled Avengers Sequel will arrive on May 3, 2019.
