Kevin Fiege Reveals New ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Concept Art & Confirms Zoe Saldana As Gamora

Thursday 2nd May 2013 by Shawn Madden

In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, there’s quite a bit of coverage for Marvel’s upcoming “Phase Two” films. Earlier today we saw some new details and concept art for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and now we have some new concept from James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. If you know Peter Quill’s backstory, you know definitely know what scene this is. If you don’t know the backstory, you should probably go pick up a copy of Guardians Of The Galaxy #0.1 and get caught up. Kevin Fiege talked about the highly-anticipated release, which included confirmation that actress Zoe Saldana has signed on as the film’s female lead:

“Guardians takes place within the continuity of the [other movies] but it’s on the other side of the universe. We’ve always wanted to do a space movie. I’m obsessed with Star Wars, I’m obsessed with Star Trek.”

“It’s a huge story on a massive canvas,” Feige says. “We can take it to all those crazy places as long as all the characters respond in an emotionally truthful way. That’s why I believe people are going to respond to Chris Pratt and to an alien Zoë Saldana—because they did respond to that one time before [with Avatar]. And to a tree and a raccoon who, it is certainly our intention, will steal the whole movie.”
