The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s epic grand finale is just days away and reviews about the series have already debuted. And while so many fans of the Marvel franchise are thrilled over the chance to see the Avengers reunited once again, for us it’s really all about getting a chance to see what end Zoe Saldana’s beloved MCU character Gamora will meet. After all, at the end of Infinity War, we were all pretty certain that she’d been murdered by her adoptive father Thanos.

In a recent interview with Esquire, Saldana confirmed that Endgame” was “such a top-secret project that even the cast is confused in terms of what is up and what is down… Nobody ever had a full script, you were just given sides like a day before you were supposed to travel to location to shoot, and by the time you would get there it turned out that those sides were inaccurate, they purposefully misdirected you, and now your sides are given to you an hour before you were supposed to be on set.”

To be totally prepped for what’s to happen in “Endgame” here’s a break down of Gamora’s history and what to expect from her in the new movie.

She’s definitely going to be in Endgame.

In an interview with E News lsat year, Saldana let it slip that she will be making an appearance in the fourth Avengers film. So we’ll definitely be seeing her in the big film once again!

She’s a holder of cosmic powers.

She might not have them in the upcoming film, or they could make an appearance in a very big way. Either way, Gamora has a history of having cosmic powers which she received from Star-Lord.

Girl comes from the future.

Thanos snatched Gamora up from a future timeline and after he did so he brought her back to his ship. Keep in mind that Thanos’ timeline 20 years prior to the Universal Church’s invasion. This means that Gamora witnessed the devastation of her entire planet while also growing up in a timeline where she was able to see her people the Zen Whobris alive.

She has precognitive powers.

Gamora might have guarded the Time Gem but she didn’t use it for a very long time.

She was trapped in the soul stone more than once.

After her “death” in Infinity War, many of us were pretty certain that she wasn’t actually dead but instead trapped in the Soul Stone. It wouldn’t be the first time for her either. In Avengers Annual #7 Gamora received critical wounds during a fine with Thanos. As she was dying Adam Warlock pulled her into the Soul Gem where she healed.

She’s not a turncoat, but girl has fought both sides of the same war.

In Civil War II Gamora fought on both sides of the war. She initially fought against Iron Man with Captain Marvel. Then when she learned Captain Marvel had kept information from her about Thanos she turnedo n him.

She used to be part of the Holy Guard

Gamora might be a recluse but she sure knows how to play on a team. Keep in mind that she’s fought with  Infinity Watch, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Holy Guard.

She was in love with someone else before Star-Lord

Yes the two make a perfect match in MCU but Gamora’s original love interest wasn’t always a half-Terran vigilante. She used to be madly in love with Adam Arlock.

She trained She-Hulk

She’s a great trainer and once trained She-Hulk to be come the champion she becomes during the Power Gem match.

She was a mother in another dimension.

Gamora and Adam Warlock travel with Atleza to another dimension to raise her after it is discovered that she is successor of the Anchor of Reality.

Turns Out A Lot Of The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Cast Can Speak Fluent Spanish And We Are Impressed

Turns Out A Lot Of The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Cast Can Speak Fluent Spanish And We Are Impressed

FilmArtsy / YouTube

With “Avengers: Endgame” topping box office charts, you might want to see the main cast try their hand at Spanish before you hit the theaters. Thanks to every good Latin reporter, we have clips of Tom Holland to Zoe Saldana speaking our tongue the best ways they know how.

Be warned. In this interview compilation provided by YouTube channel FilmArtsy, there is little to no context. Just Spanish. Disfrute.

Zoe Saldana is the picture (and sound) of beauty como siempre.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Saldana starts off by saying, en Español, that “The last twenty years in U.S. have been very difficult, but also in Cuba…” She tells us how she loves playing such a decent, rich character who is skilled in her business.

Chris Hemsworth (a.k.a. Thor) gives us all the Spanish he knows. It’s not much and is totally random.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He starts out by saying, “Buena suerte! Which means ‘good luck’ for all you English speakers out there, which is basically me because I’m not really that versed in Spanish. Or am I? Adios, gracias! Un cafe con leche por favor. Si. Buenas noches.”

Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) play a similar game.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

“Corazon. Ay dios mio,” seems to be their response to the question of if they know Spanish. When the Latina reporter asks if that’s all the Spanish they know, they start shouting out random words. “Mas o menos. Fuego. Dulce. La película! Chocolate. Papi Chulo.”

Latino Michael Peña is known from “Ant-Man” and gives us a puro Spanglish interview.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He’s fluent in Spanish but some words escape him like “prep school” and “priests.” Honestly, this is the most authentic way we have ever heard a Latino speak Spanish as an American.

Tom Holland (Spiderman) trying to guess Spanish words is an ego-booster we all need.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

This video has already gone viral once before, but his answer is too good not to share: “Oooh. Es–cute—Ella. Es-school-ah. Can I come back to that one? I think I do know what that is.”

Apparently, Jeremy Renner used to teach Spanish in high school.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He tells the reporter that he understands what she’s saying but that he’s lost the motor skills he once had as a Spanish teacher. He then goes into teacher mode saying, “Escucha. Calmate. Chiquitica.”

Vin Diesel (Groot) is really into Nicky Jam.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He asks the host, “Tu sabes Nicky Jam?” Immediately he gets up and starts dancing to Nicky Jam but is confused and starts calling out for the Puerto Rican singer.

“Nicky! Y que? Nicky Jam, y que? Donde está?” When the host says que “no está aquí,” Diesel laments, “Y por que?!”

The most shocking level of fluency was Gwyneth Paltrow.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

When asked what her favorite place is, she tells the reporter that she loved Liverpool when she was working there. But then she went to London and loved taking photos in front of Big Ben and had a lot of fun.

Baby Robert Downing Jr. was seen hosting a game show in Spanish?

FilmArtsy / YouTube

There is little to no context here and he did say “dee” instead of “de” so maybe this was back when they were hiring white people for Latin roles?

Tom Hiddleston takes on a classic Spanish tongue twister.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Say “¿Cómo quieres que te quiera si él que quiero que me quiera no me quiere como quiero que me quiera?” three times fast. He didn’t do so bad!

Chris Pratt is still Chris Pratt in Spanish.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

“Muy buenas directes de español. *Knock Knock Knock* Hola a mi representa mechanical shop. Especial por treinta personas. Cuatro cambio de siete por veinte dólares. Bien si?”

I’m sorry, que que?

Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie singing Feliz Navidad seems like a good time.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Anthony Mackie gives an enviously good Mexican trill at the end. Clearly, he is more connected to the culture than people might know.

Watch the whole video for yourself.

This Clip Of Gamora Speaking Spanish On The Set Of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Would Have Made For A Better Twist

@zoesaldana / Instagram

“Avengers: Endgame” actress and Latina powerhouse Zoe Saldana posted a video on her Instagram page of herself decked-out in full costume for her MCU character, Gamora. In the video, Saldana sips on an unknown beverage before launching into a little ditty: “Aquí con mi matecito, en el set de Avengers.” She then stops and looks at the camera with feigned surprise and says, “Gamora speaks Spanish? No lo sabía”.

She captioned the video: “What! Espanol…GAMORA?!?”

The video quickly garnered a lot of attention, racking up almost 6 million views and over 33,000 comments. The comment section filled up with Latino fans expressing their joy at seeing one of their favorite Marvel characters speaking their language. Even fellow “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor, Vin Diesel, took to the comments to express his approval, commenting “No lo sabia!?! Hahaha. Love”.

It’s not often that the Latinx community sees a celebrity in one of the most massive and successful franchises in history repping their Latinx identity with such pride.

It’s also noteworthy that Saldana was mentioned that she was drinking matecito or mate in her Insta post, a caffeine-rich drink that is popular in South America, especially in Argentina. So, in general, Saldana is giving off all the Latinx vibes in this social media post.

Saldana has been candid before about how she gravitates towards sci-fi roles because they put less emphasis on the color of her skin–which she believes is secondary to who she is as a person.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bw0xMvhhBa9/

“If I only went after Latina roles or roles of women of color then I’m not really exercising my desire to be an artist full-heartedly and whole-heartedly,” she told A Plus online. “The purpose of being an actor is to be a chameleon where you get to play different things. When the roles provided for me on Earth are limited, then space felt like the right place to go.”

As for Latinx Twitter, they couldn’t get enough of Gamora speaking Spanish.

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

Like we said, the rarity of an occasion like this is cause for celebration.

This super-fan felt the need to shout the news from the rooftops.

We can’t blame him for showing his excitement.

This Latina felt the effect of Saldana’s charisma in full-swing.

So many Latinas were discussing with their girlfriends how Saldana has made them have a girl crush that they didn’t even know they were capable of.

This girl was super excited that her favorite drink was finally getting the attention it deserved.

In South America, the cult of mate is real.

And this Latina gave Saldana a nickname that we’ll be using from this point forward:

Facts.

We’re so happy that Zoe Saldana, as Latina in Hollywood, has experienced so much success in both her “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers” franchises! We can’t wait to see what’s next for her–we know she’ll slay no matter what.
