According to EW, Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora, described her wide range of emotions while filming the third film: “[Filming] started bitter in the beginning cause obviously you’re anticipating the end, but I’m just so happy that once again I got to work with great people,”

Saldana said: “I had an evolution that I witnessed of myself, but also my director and my cast. I just felt very blessed and grateful. It was a very sweet departure, I have to say.”

Despite the fact that Gamora died in Avengers: Infinity War, the younger Gamora from 2014 returned in Avengers: Endgame when she traveled to the present with Thanos and his forces.

During the battle between the Avengers and Thanos’ army, Gamora, Captain Marvel, Wasp, and other female heroes came together to protect the Nano Gauntlet. Saldana recalled the “special” sequence’s practical aspects.

“Obviously, we knew it was going to be special, and we were feeling ourselves every time the Russos would say, “Action!’”

“But what I can remember — and these are the nuggets of life that make me feel so human and keep me grounded — is that we were just complaining about how uncomfortable our costumes were, our makeup, our wigs, how cold the set was, how much we didn’t want to be there, how much we wanted to be there.”

She added “So we were just being girls, you know? Going together and acting tough [through that] was also very special.”
