Zoe Saldaña, who portrayed the formidable Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, recently spoke about the potential future of the Guardians. Following the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, fans and cast members are left wondering what’s next for this ragtag group of intergalactic heroes.

I would think it would be a huge loss for Marvel if they didn’t find a way to bring back the Guardians of the Galaxy.

In an interview with The Playlist’s Discourse podcast, Saldaña expressed her hopes for the team’s return. “I mean, so far, I think that she is [gone for good] for me, but I don’t think Gamora has gone for good,” she said. “I would think it would be a huge loss for Marvel if they didn’t find a way to bring back the Guardians of the Galaxy.”


Saldaña emphasized the team’s popularity and the unique voice of writer-director James Gunn, who has been instrumental in shaping the franchise. Saldaña further shared,

“It’s just such a fan-favorite group of misfits, you know? And then at the helm, they had a voice like James Gunn’s writing — which is just so marvelous for and very specific for this genre. And it’s so great for this genre as well. So, I would be the first one in the first row to sort of celebrate when the Guardians of the Galaxy come back.”

Uncertainty Surrounds the Guardians of the Galaxy’s Next Chapter

The question of whether there will be a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4 looms large. James Gunn, responsible for the first three Guardians films, has embarked on a new venture at DC Studios, leaving the possibility of a fourth movie without his involvement. The series’ extension by Marvel could signal the arrival of a fresh directorial perspective.


The possibility of the Guardians’ cast joining Gunn in his new role at DC Studios has also been a topic of speculation. Saldaña, for one, is open to the idea of working with Gunn again, regardless of the cinematic universe. “I love the superhero universe of any sort,” she said. With her sons increasingly fascinated by comic books and superheroes, Saldaña is determined to be involved in projects that will hold their interest for years. She said,

“I have sons that are obsessed with comic books right now, and superheroes, so for me to be a part of projects that they will get to watch for the next 10, 15 years of their whole lives, it’s a dream for me… If it never gets to happen, or if it happens with other filmmakers, and not James Gunn, or if it happens again with James Gunn, I would be so grateful.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy have become a cornerstone of the MCU, known for their humor, heart, and dynamic characters. Their potential return, either with the original team or a new lineup, is a prospect that excites many. However, with Gunn’s departure and the conclusion of the current team’s story arc, the future of the Guardians is up in the air.
