Disclaimer: This post contains plot spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
With a movie like Avengers: Infinity War, you never know which characters will make a huge impact, though in the case of Gamora, it seemed inevitable she would be playing such a pivotal role in the epic skirmish against her father, the Mad Titan Thanos. Given that she is one of the daughters of the purple giant, it does make sense that a good portion of the film would focus on their relationship, though maybe not how it ended.
As you’ll recall, in the film, Gamora was the only one who knew where the Soul Stone was, and upon arriving on the planet where it lay dormant, Thanos was informed by the Red Skull that he needed to sacrifice someone he loved to wield it — a soul for a soul. And with that, we saw her untimely end.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, actress Zoe Saldana discussed her initial reaction to learning her character’s fate.
“I learned very early on. The producers called me and they told me. And of course there’s a shock to your system. I’m so grateful, this run has been amazing, but you’re so not even ready for that. But then once some of the things were discussed, I understood that it just makes sense. In order for you to understand the degree of evil that lies within the core of Thanos, you have to circle in on his own children. So I completely understood. I loved being a part of this unforgettable journey.”
Gamora is one of the deaths that I hope sticks around in this universe, as it adds a real weight to it, but one of you readers suggested the possibility of her return. After all, Thanos does communicate with Gamora’s younger self, which could be the result of her soul being trapped in the Soul Stone. With that in mind, once the Soul Stone is destroyed, can she ultimately be freed and put into another body?
We’ll have to wait and see, but for the time being, it seems that Saldana is content with her character’s fate.
