Saldana was recently cast as Gamora in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Her character's a green alien who's also a highly-trained assassin. The film's currently in pre-production, and she told MTV that they're hard at work on her costume.

"I'm in the process right now of the evolution of conceiving Gamora's look. It's exciting," she exclaimed. "We're trying to work out comfort also, because you know that I definitely want to be involved in the stunt-doing of my character."
