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

“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.

“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.

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.

Cardi B’s First Leading Movie Role Will Thrill ‘Sister Act’ And ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Fans

Cardi B’s First Leading Movie Role Will Thrill ‘Sister Act’ And ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Fans

For one of her upcoming projects, fans of Cardi B can expect a throwback to her older days. That’s right, Cardi B is stepping into a familiar role before the screen. The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star has proven herself capable of making music bangers and in Hustlers she showed that she can hold her own when it comes to the big screen.

Now, the rapper is playing the lead in Paramount’s upcoming film Assisted Living.

Cardi was recently cast in the “raucous comedy” called Assisted Living.

According to Variety, the upcoming film “is being described as a ‘raucous comedy’ with ‘tremendous heart.’ Fans of Cardi can expect a film that looks quite a bit like Tootsie, Sister Act, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

The upcoming film follows Cardi B as Amber a small-time crook who gets herself into trouble when a heist goes wrong. “On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide, reports Variety. “Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Cardi B has been in a major film.

In 2019 she appeared the blockbuster film Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, and Keke Palmer.

And of course, for some time fans were hopeful that Cardi would take on the titular role of a reboot of the ’90s sitcom “The Nanny.”

According to CNN, the reality star-turned-rapper has been in talks to play Fran Drescher’s daughter in a potential reboot of the ‘90s sitcom.

Speaking about a potential reboot in 2018, Fran Drescher told Extra in an interview “[I’m] talking to her representation. It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun.” Here’s hoping we get more Cardi B on screen!
