I'm sticking with my choice of Adrianne Palicki. She's perfect for Gamora in every single, possible way.

Jessica Lucas
Jessica Chastain

Maybe our Gamora is among those actresses?
I added Jessica Chastain, as mentioned above, for her all-too-brief association with Iron Man 3.

Out of those listed, Kiera is the only one I'd consider ass-kicking enough to do the job, but she's also pretty darn expensive.

Rumor has it that Alice Eve is Marvel's top choice for Enchantress in Thor 2; and I wouldn't be surprised to see Edgar Wright use his connections to make Winstead into Wasp.

Maybe Marvel can snag Jessica Biel, now that she's turned down The Wolverine.

No Jessica Biel tainting the MCU please. I think she's not a very good actress.

I'd love Patton for Gamora. She's talented, kickass, beautiful. Same with Rosario Dawson. Both would be a win for the role.

^I think she has the athletic and musculare body to pull off the role though personally speaking, the action especially she could pull off, and her acting is good enough for the role as well.

Yeah Biel is a no go. Shes just not much of an actress. And shes not very interesting even when shes decent. She has the bod for it, but so what? Thats what personal trainers and steroids are for.

I like Patton too, but Rosario is my top choice at the moment. Lol not that I get a choice.

You gotta admit that Rosario is the one who's most believable as a hot chick who'd just love to stab you and rip out your beating heart --- literally --- while she's still got you in bed.

Love the idea of Paula Patton.

I'd say no to Mitra and Palicki though. Mitra, because I tend to associate her with crappy B-movies like Doomsday and Palicki because the only time I've ever been impressed by her acting is when she's playing a ditz.

Yep.
This reminds me of the unending costume arguments in the Ms. Marvel (speculative) thread. Superheroines should be allowed to be sexy, without having to be practical all the time.

Especially when it comes to Gamora. All the usual arguments against the hooker garb worn by Wonder Woman or Ms. Marvel can be thrown right out the window when it comes to Gamora, because she LIKES to be sexy, and flaunt her body and sexuality. She uses it as much as a weapon as she does her blades.

I don't agree. A character can be sexy but they don't need to look like they've walked off a porn set.

I know certain guys enjoy that in comics but there's a reason why comic books are stereotyped towards a certain type of guy. Movies have a broader audience and there will be young girls and boys looking at these characters.

It's not like there isn't a precedent in space opera for half-naked girls. Slave Leia shows more skin than Gamora does, and there's Princess Ardala or Zardala or whoever from Buck Rogers, and I'm pretty sure Flash Gordon had some bikini-clad princesses, too. Even the disaster that was John Carter let Dejah Thoris show a fair amount of skin, albeit not the full nude of the novels.

A half-naked Gamora would be "true to canon," and still meet the "family standards" test, compared to Star Wars, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, John Carter and other space opera.

Nah, she's gonna have to be mostly covered, with a semi-practical outfit depending on the environment. A scene or two of partial pg-13 nudity is fine, but thats about it. This is an adaptation, so "canon" doesnt enter into it.

All of Marvel's movies have deviated from canon - sometimes drastically - when necessary. The fact that they've managed to preserve the spirit of the comics is a small miracle. And for such an obscure property, they should feel free to throw canon out the window. Keep what works, and ditch the rest. Not a problem if the movie is good.

A John Carter-esque costume would work for an action heroine. The above would not

Not gonna happen. She will have clothes, not strips of fabric. Also, she wont have primitive tribal duds either. Believe me, I would love to see Rosario Dawson (my personal pick) in that outfit from the comics, but its not in the cards. At least for the bulk of the film.

And please stop using JC as an example of ANYTHING except what not to do. Just accept it for the enormous failure that it was, and something that for Disney and Marvel represents a cautionary tale and not some misunderstood cult classic with ideas that are worth plundering for future projects. I understand that some folks enjoyed it but no one cares. Thanks.
