Speaking on the Golden Globes red carpet to MTV News, Saldana was asked if she was in Infinity War, to which she was a responded with a simple nod, before elaborating on the status of the script and her hope for the project:

“I don’t know when they’re gonna let me read it. I mean, I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there.”

Gamora was the (former) favorite daughter of Thanos, so it only makes sense that she would appear in Infinity War, but confirmation from the actress herself is still very good to hear. While the extent of any of the Guardians’ roles in the third Avengers film is unclear, Gamora is likely to be a key presence. When discussing the team working with the Avengers last year, Guardians costar Vin Diesel alluded to Gamora and Thanos’ familial connection, suggesting that it could be a very important element of the teams’ attempts to stop the Mad Titan from wielding the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet in the Infinity War movie.

In the same interview, Saldana also reveals that she’s seen some of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; when she went to do ADR work on the film, James Gunn showed her several clips, which she says “looks great”. If the Guardians sequel is as successful as the first movie, then Saldana can expect to spend a lot more time in green make-up over the next few years.
