Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker Talk ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana recently gave some in-depth comments about the Marvel Phase Two ensemble, where she revealed that the project will make you look at superheroes in a whole new way.

Here's what she had to say, when asked what fans should expect from the film, while praising director James Gunn."A new way to view superheroes. I love sometimes the consistency of what the classics have left behind, but I need innovation. You can only have so much of, 'I'll save you!' After a while, it's 'Oh God, does he go to the bathroom? Is he hungry?' It's like, 'Does he cry? Does he feel?' and not only do we cover that, we're making heroes that are thieves! They're Robin Hood's and I love that because I like the underdog and the hardest route because that's the only one that's going to teach you great lessons in life.
