Zoe Saldana’s Gamora Will be Done with Make-Up

When Total Film sat down with her for an interview, she told them that Gamora would indeed be herself in green make-up rather than using any sort of CG or performance capture, which is a viable question since Saldana famously played the performance capture role of Neytiri in James Cameron’s Avatar. 

The thought of Saldana as the barely-clad green warrior Gamora in the flesh is probably enough to give teenage boys a heart attack, but it’s a good sign that Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy is in good hands with James Gunn.

It’s scheduled to start production in a few weeks for an August 1, 2014 release date.
