Fans still don’t have a complete list of who all will be part of Avengers: Infinity War, but they do know a handful of the starring heroes. Over the past year, news has slowly trickled out that superheroes like the Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange will be involved with the ensemble blockbuster, but fans have been waiting to hear confirmation from the actors themselves. Now, Zoe Saldana is ending the wait on her behalf and making it known that she’ll be featured in Infinity War.
the starlet attended the Golden Globe Awards and spoke with MTV’s Josh Horowitz. It was there that Saldana confirmed she would star in Infinity War after being asked about its script.
“I don’t know when they’re going to let me see it,” she said. “I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make up, but every time I arrive on set, I’m so happy and lucky to be there.”
With such a large cast of talent, fans are curious how Marvel Studios plans to balance everyone’s screen time. Last year, president Kevin Feige said a lot of the back-and-forth is going to come down to the movie’s script.
“Well it’s about the screenplay and Chris Markus and Steve McFeely — out of everyone we’ve worked with — have a very deft hand with balance,” he said. There are a lot of characters in [the first] Captain America; there are a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, and of course Civil War has as many as we’ve ever had, so it’s in very capable hands [when] it comes to divvying up the storylines in a way that services a primary narrative but [also] showcases many characters.”
“How many times will all 30, 50, 60 whatever it is be in the frame at the same time? That is the hard part,” Feige continued before adding there won’t be “much” of those moments.
