Not that we know of, haha. Seriously she doesn't have to. But I could see Gamora knocking boots with Quill, as a no strings attached kind of thing. She's done it in the books before. As long as they don't turn her into a love interest. Gamora's not the romantic type.

Exactly. And honestly? Neither is Quill. I think the only character you can really have Gamora fall for other than just "knocking boots" with is Warlock.

Eh, I'd rather not see her engaged in any kind of no-strings whatever relationship. I'd rather the audience see her as the deadliest woman in the galaxy, not the skankiest one. :P

Why would a relationship with the hero make her (or any woman) a skank....?

Love interests are a staple in ALL forms of fiction. The relationship doesn't have to dominate the story and turn it into a Harlequin Romance Novel or Lifetime Movie of the Week, but it's generally accepted that the hero needs a main squeeze, and it's pretty damn sexy when that squeeze is also a deadly femme fatale.

I'd be willing to bet that the film actually begins with Peter Quill as an ordinary guy on Earth, and he gets transported into this distant and dangerous quadrant of the galaxy; so it's likely that his meeting with Gamora will turn into a boy-meets-(alien)girl type scenario.

There were talking about a no strings kind of deal, which is fare for an Ashton Kutcher film.

But it's ok for James Bond to be a manwhore? Why is it that when a man keeps sleeping around, he's a stud, but a woman is a skank?

This is a completely moot point at this juncture, but I think they shouldve gone with Moondragon instead of Gamora. Gamora and Drax are similar in a lot of ways, but Moondragon has distinct powers and a connection to Drax, Thanos, and the Eternals. Oh well.

Still looking forward to seeing Gamora on the big screen. Maybe they can squeeze in Moondragon in the 3rd act, a subplot for Drax.

Problem is Gamora is the team's best connection to Thanos.

Wasnt Drax created for the sole purpose of killing Thanos? And Moondragon was rescued by Thanos' father, among other connections. Again its moot, but connections to Thanos arent the issue.

My point was that shes more interesting than Gamora, with a more distinct power set. Hopefully she will play a role at some point in the future.

Gamora is Thanos's Daughter. Point. Set. Match.

I also consider Moondragon a highly unlikeable character. Interesting, but unlikeable.

No, Moondragon isn't very likeable.

Plus, there's a definite dichotomy between Drax and Gamora --- Drax is the assassin sent to kill Thanos, and Gamora is more or less protective of him.

And ditto on Moondragon being unlikeable. I hated her in GOTG, I hated her in Infinity Watch, I hated her in the Avengers, I hated her in The Defenders. She's never been an appealing character.

Eh, the modern iteration of her is pretty generic personality-wise and skillset-wise. Starlin referred to the new version as a fanboy sex fantasy (im paraphrasing), but that was probably sour grapes. Nothing wrong with sexy, though theyre def gonna tone it down.

My guess is they will give her a more distinct character and her backstory will be different from the comics. The casting will be crucial of course.

Id also like to see Mantis at some point down the road. Probably a long shot.

Im curious if theyre gonna have potential team-members as minor characters. Adam Warlock is the obvious candidate, though Mantis or Moondragon would be cool. Most likely none of the above.

I just hope that Moondragon has hair if/when she appears. The whole baldness thing never appealed to me, although I do generally like her otherwise.

Maybe start her out with hair and then give her the bald look after an encounter with thanos and/or his minions or whoever they are going to be fighting.

I don't know much about her but from the few things I read I was surprised to realize she is actually born on earth.

Whatever happened to Eva Mendes? She sort of dropped off the face of the world.

I liked her. She was good in Hitch and did her best with Ghost Rider.

No more Moondragon talk in my Gamora thread...if anything she belongs in the Drax thread.

Somebody make a Moondragon thread. Call it "Ol' Baldy" or something.

to the MD thread name.

Lynn Collins would be a solid choice for Gamora as well.
