yuppity yup. Get the best actress available, who is fit and attractive. I guess she can have a "fierce" look to her, but that's the extent of the typecasting. Even race/ethnicity is wide open in my book. She's a green skinned alien after all. Some experience playing a sexually aggressive - or at least confident - character in the past would be a plus though. But a great actress playing against type could still be interesting, so I'm not excluding a more demure actress necessarily.

Im still lobbying for Rosario Dawson btw. Sexy, talented, with big expressive features. Just a refresher:

She's rarely drawn excessively bulky or muscular. I sort of feel like any actress over 5'6" who hits the gym hard can play her.
As frail as Gemma Arterton is now compared to Gamora, she would have to hit the gym real hard to pull it off. Because the way she looks now, there is no way it'll look believable when she throws a guy a quarter mile like Ronan.

If it makes you happy, Carano's scheduling looks tied up as well. She's gonna be in production with Fast 6, Female Expendables and some other movie. It'll be tight scheduling for her to be in Guardians.

Carano is a rising action hero/actress. By the time production starts for this movie, she'll have two more movies under her belt. Honestly what better acting skills does she need? This isn't a drama movie shooting for an Academy Award. This is a Super Hero Space Opera. All Gamora does is throw people, kill people, swing a sword around, dresses half nude and spit one liners. We don't need her to preform extravagant romance scenes. We need her to preform extravagant neck slicing scenes.

Also as said before, Champions of WWE that would hold their belt for long periods of time (years) are the one's who hold the better acting skills overall the other pro wrestlers.

Oh yea and Hemsworth didn't need a body trainer. He already had the muscle from working on a farm. He said, he's never been to a weight lifting gym a day in his life. He's ripped from lifting hay. An hay will do that to ya. As I said before, it was an acting trainer that Disney gave him for the Thor role. Disney isn't afraid to supply an acting trainer to a once been mediocre actor.

I would be fine with Gemma Arterton, they would just have to assign her a 24/7 body building trainer to the point where they'll be asking her to play on the Female Expendables team.

She's not a bad choice.

Daniella Alonso would be another choice.

It doesn't matter what her scheduling looks like, because Marvel would never let her in the door. They're after real actors.

So do you guys just want Gamora to be a green skinned human, or should she have some extra texture to her prosthetics to make her more alien?

As long as she's still sexy and green, that's all I ask. If they start lizarding her up and making her ugly, Imma hafta smack some beeches up over at Disney-Vell.

I would be delighted if Rosario was cast, not only is she gorgeous, she is a good actress to boot, she can play tough, sexy, fragile, anything really so would be more than happy for her to get the part.

Making Gamora more alien-looking than the comics would be good. All these smooth-faced, human-looking aliens are a damn sight too convenient. They're supposed to be from other planets, with genetics that differ from ours, so they should look substantially different. Merely having odd-colored skin doesn't cut it. Changes to the shape of her face, maybe some scales (worked for Mystique), even low-tech contact lenses to give her reptilian eyes, could make Gamora look plausibly alien and not just like a woman painted green. They might even give her the corrugated Skrull-like chin to match Thanos, to emphasize their supposed relationship.

I don't want Gamora to be ugly, but I think the skin color should be more of a lizard green than a Forest green, and that her eyes should look slightly unsettling.




Adding ridges or roughness to the yellow around her eyes would give her extra texture.

For the sake of expressiveness, they might give her normal irises/eyes. I also think it would be cool if they gave her an "obviously alien" feature, but they probably want to save money where they can.

I agree that getting the skin color and texture right is key. The green chick from Star Trek aint gonna cut it. Something similar to ^above might work.

Finally got around to watching John Carter the other day........

I second Chewy's vote for Lynn Collins.

She really does a damn fine job in that movie (and she's absolutely stunning too - Wouldn't surprise me if Warner's are looking at her for WW in Justice League)

Shes forgettable, which is more than I can say for Klitsch. And her one and only prominent role was one of the biggest flops in recent memory. Also, she is an old-looking 35. I assure you that WB - whenever they get around to casting - wont be looking at her.

She could probably pull off Gamora, but shes like anti-Rosario as far as screen presence. Too many better options, but maybe Marvel wants to save a few bucks on casting. Still more likely LC will be doing straight-to-DVD fare and/or basic cable in the near future.

I want Gamora to not have any texture to her skin. I want her to look pretty much like an Orion Slave Girl. I really don't like what was done to movie Mystique. Far too scaly for my liking.

yeah sorry for the rant. i was disappointed to see the Lynn Collins fetishists had migrated to the Gamora thread. ENOUGH WITH LYNN COLLINS. Sheesh.

To be fair though, LC as Gamora is at least within the realm of possibility - uninspired but possible. LC as WW is fantasyland.

on-topic: I think a little texture would be okay. And the Mystique make-up worked great for a long-boned, graceful model type like Romijn. Lawrence, whos lovely, just looked bizarre (in a bad way) with the scaly makeup because of her bone structure and round cheeks. JL is probably the superior actress, but RR was perfectly cast imo. Anyway, a little texture could work for Gamora, depending on the actress.
