It Would Be A Huge Loss For Marvel Studios To Not Bring Back The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Says Zoe Saldana

Checking in on the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, James Gunn is done with Marvel and the MCU as he’s now calling the shots for DC Studios and can’t legally work for them.

Drax actor Dave Bautista has repeatedly confirmed that he’s done playing Drax, although he’s open to returning to the MCU in a less physical makeup-intensive role.

Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord seems headed towards a solo film or solo Disney+ series.

With so much of the original magic gone from what made the Guardians of the Galaxy special, should Marvel Studios continue on with the franchise?

Gamora actress Zoe Saldana certainly seems to think so, although she’s taking a play out of Bautista’s playbook and suggesting that it’s time for someone else to play the Mad Titan’s daughter.

Speaking to The Playlist, and responding to a question on whether she was done with the role, Saldana stated, “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 teased, implying that someone else could take up the torch.

She went on to say, “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. 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.” 

At the end of Vol. 3, the closing moments saw a new team of Guardians assembled and led by Rocket Racoon which consisted of Groot, Kraglin, Cosmo, Adam Warlock, and Phyla-Vell.

It’s hard to imagine Marvel Studios moving forward with such a hodge-podge roster of Guardians for another feature film but all of the original team members are still alive and well in the MCU, even though some of them are now on separate journeys.

Perhaps they’ll reunite in Avengers: Secret Wars and go on to kickstart a new trilogy once The Multiverse Saga comes to a close?

If so, who would you want to see take Gunn’s place as writer and/or director? And would you want the franchise to move forward with the roster seen in the closing moments of Vol. 3, bring back the original team or a mixture of both?
