Zoe Saldana might have just dropped a huge spoiler in regards to the future of the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers franchises. There has been much speculation that Marvel Studios might be planning for the Guardians of the Galaxy to crossover with The Avengers in Avengers 3, but it's all been just speculation to date. In a new interview with Total Film magazine, Saldana dropped this little nugget of information. When talking about her reaction when Marvel Studios first approached her about playing Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy, Saldana said, "I was like, Guardians? There's a person that's a tree and there's a racoon? Apparently they fight with The Avengers. I didn't even know who The Avengers were!" Now, here's a key observation from Saldana's comments. Saldana confesses that she didn't even know who The Avengers were, so the part about the Guardians of the Galaxy fighting with the Avengers isn't something that she just picked up from a comic book storyline. It certainly sounds like the Guardians of the Galaxy fighting the Avengers was part of the pitch that Marvel Studios made to get her to sign onto the film. Update: There are two ways that Saldana's "fight with" comment could be interpreted. The way we initially interpreted was that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be fighting against the Avengers, since people often use "team up" in the comic book world to describe when teams are fighting alongside each other. However, because Saldana was speaking as someone new to the comic book world, there could be an equally compelling argument (as noted in the comments) that "fight with" in this case could mean team up. Either way, it does appear to be a big hint that the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers will be crossing paths. Saldana isn't the first Guardians of the Galaxy cast member to suggest a possible crossover with The Avengers. Back in August, Chris Pratt hinted that because the two teams exist in the same universe that their stories could intersect. Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released in movie theaters on August 1, 2014.
