I really hope Gamora's portrayal cuts closer to her D&N Guardians appearances than her Avengers Assemble ones.

In Avengers Assemble, Thor hits on her, and she's like "Thank you, I'm flattered." It should've been the other way around, with Gamora being like "Hey, tall glass of handsome, want to knock boots?" Gamora needs to be aggressive and sarcastic with a dark wit. I don't want her to be a self-serious, or proper at all.

No need to make her Hulk like but I think she should be beyond Cap, imho.

Well that's a huge range between a guy who can lift a half ton and one who can lift well over 100 tons.

I think Gamora should be undefined superhuman, and any real strength / lifting scenes should go to Groot.

Ok then, I'll be a little more specific. If she were on Earth, she should be able to lift a full-size SUV no problem. So that's roughly 6,000 lbs. being that she is alien I don't find that unbelievable at all. Definitely stronger than cap, but would crumble from even a flick from hulk or thor imho.

But, if they make her unspecified..I suppose that's just fine with me lol.

I'd say she should be brickier, somewhere between Spider-man and Loki. She should be strong and tough enough that, given her skill, she can fight and stand for a while against top class bricks, but that she really does have to dodge and parry; an unrolled blow would be the end of the fight basically.

what does brickier, brickish and all those iterations mean. Forgive me if it's a bit noobish, but never heard of that really and see that term being flung around here a lot the last week or so.

She should basically be as strong/ durable as the average Asgardian woman imo. Class 25 strength, bullet proof, and basically unable to be injured by conventional means.

A "brick" is a "character class" in the superhero genre. It's a guy (or girl) whose main focus is being stronger than an ox. Named after Thing, for obvious reasons, but other "bricks" include Hulk, Abomination, She-Hulk, Solomon Grundy, Teen Titans' Cyborg, Colossus, Juggernaut, Rhino, and the like.

I think they should just keep her at the the level she was in Annihilation, she was able to go toe-to-toe with Ronan in that, not to mention was quite an important fighter in Nova's army, I think that is the perfect level for her.

Not to mention throw Ronan about a half a mile with one hand.

The point of these movies IS the acting though, not the beefcake/ t&a. I think you need to adjust your priorities.

Do you remember Zeus/ aka Tiny Lister? He was in The Dark Knight as the convict who disposed of the switch. He was brought into WWF based on his look in 1989 to wrestle Hulk Hogan, and set up a Wrestlemania VI clash for the WWF Title? The problem? He couldn't wrestle so it never took off.

Putting an actor who can't act in a film is as bad as putting a wrestler who can't wrestle, or a fighter who can't fight. Eve Torres, your shining example, would be as embarrassing to this film as David Arquette was to the WCW World Title when he won it in 2000.

Eve Torres? Would be a complete embarrassment. Gina Carrano? would be a big liability. Find an actress, someone who does this for a living, at the very least.

Eve Torres does acting for a living. Gina Carano is slated for more films, thus the more she does, the more she improves on her acting abilities. She will be on the female Expendables team and hell man, any woman on the Expendables team would be alright for Gamora. If the Expendables were a Comic, Gamora would be on that team.

I remember when hearing about the Thor production, Hemsworth had a personal acting trainer to help him out for the role. He said it was hard work for him, they worked day in and day out, more than several hours of the day but now look, he's re-imaged Thor and he now is Thor. Marvel will do the same with either Torres or Carano, therefore improving their acting performance tenfold.

Past experience? People kept saying they should cast Triple H as Thor but thankfully they got a real actor for a job. There's no reason they'd decide to massively lower their standards now.

I don't know if anyone's actually looked at drawings of Gamora, but she's not She-Hulk. Yes, she's a bricky character power wise, but her build isn't that off from any other in shape 34-24-34 superheroine.

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.
