While we have heard lots of casting rumours about who could play Star-Lord in the James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy, there has not been much about the other characters – Groot, Rocket Raccon, Drax and Gamora.
According to Marvel Cinematic Universe Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines), Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation), Rachel Nichols (G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra), and Rosario Dawson (Sin City) are auditioning for the role of Gamora.
Gamora is the last of her species, the Zen Whoberi. Thanos found the child and decided to use her as a weapon. Gamora received treatments from Thanos that enhanced her speed, strength, agility, and durability. Thanos also helped her become a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, trained in the martial arts techniques from various planets, in the uses of the known weaponry of the Milky Way Galaxy, and stealth techniques. She is also a highly skilled gymnast and assassin, and formerly possessed a telepathic link to Thanos.
As Thanos is going to be a major player in the Marvel films then Gamora may end up being quite an important character.
All of the actresses involved have experience in action movies. Rachel Nichols also went green in Star Trek. Out of those mentioned I think Moon Bloodgood or Rosario Dawson look the part. Who would you like to see in the role?
