Zoe Saldaña doesn’t think Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is gone for good. The actress said this week it would be a “huge loss” for the MCU to say goodbye to its 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,” Saldaña said in an appearance on The Playlist. “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.”

Saldaña played Gamora in Marvel’s three Guardians films. Alongside her, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket the Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) made up the original Guardians. The group, including Gamora, also appeared in several other MCU installments, including Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers Endgame.

“I mean, so far, I think that [Gamora is done] for me, but I don’t think Gamora has gone for good,” Saldaña said this week.

Marvel has not announced plans for another Guardians installment, after writer-director James Gunn ended the third movie with the creation of a new group that included returning members Rocket and Groot and newcomers Kraglin (Sean Gunn), Cosmo (Maria Bakalova) and Adam Warlock (Will Poulter).

“I would be the first one in the first row to sort of celebrate when the Guardians of the Galaxy come back,” Saldaña said, emphasizing that her personal closure over the series had nothing to do with her love for the series.
