‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ star Zoe Saldana set to star as Gamora in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Fans are clamoring over recent casting rumors as Star Trek star, Zoe Saldana, is set to star opposite Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a role that fans say she seems perfect for.

THR reports that the Avatar star would play Gamora, the green-skinned humanoid who is the last of a species that was exterminated by a race known as the Badoon. She also happens to be a skilled assassin.

She was found and raised by Thanos (the villain appearing at the end of The Avengers) to be the perfect killing machine; her nickname makes us think she did her “father” proud. Gamora eventually turned on Thanos and ended up siding with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Saldana reprises her role as Uhura in Star Trek Into Darkness, which opens May 17, and will step back into her alien skin of Neytiri for Avatar 2.

Some new Guardians concept art gives fans a closer look at the upcoming film – check it out here
