James Gunn Considered Not Including Gamora In Guardians Of The Galaxy 3

When requested if he had ever thought of eradicating Gamora from “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3” altogether, Gunn mentioned: 

“That was a possibility, yes. [Peter] would be dealing with her loss, but she wouldn’t come back and confront him in this different way. I toyed with it a lot as I was writing the script.” 

The inclusion of Gamora not solely allowed for the return of an actress that audiences favored – Saldaña has appeared in a number of of the highest-grossing movies of all time — however in the end added to the drama. Peter was with out Gamora, but additionally together with her on the similar time. Gamora, in the meantime, needed to cope with the affections and disappointment of a person she had by no means met, testing the bounds of her empathy. 

Gunn factors out that Peter, though in his 40s, is severely arrested in his improvement. He was kidnapped from Earth at age eight, and, years later, nonetheless adheres strongly to his Earthbound childhood, carrying round a lunchbox and listening to the identical audio cassette he had on him on the time. Peter, then, unduly projected expectations onto the brand new Gamora based mostly on what he wanted, not on who she was. Gunn outlined it thus:

“It’s something we do a lot in relationships anyway: We expect someone who reminds us of somebody from the past to be that somebody from the past. Especially with women, Peter Quill defines people around him to suit his own needs as opposed to really looking and seeing who they actually are as human beings. And Gamora is just not the same Gamora. She’s a different person.”
