At the back end of 2016 we understood that the Guardians of the Galaxy would in some shape or form crossover with the main cast for Avengers: Infinity War. But now there is greater clarity for the 2018 ensemble blockbuster. With Chris Pratt letting the cat out of the bag that his Star-Lord would be coming on board, Zoe Saldana outlined that she will be doing the exact same thing as Gamora.
To jam as many heroes into one feature as possible, Tom Holland will reprise his Spider-Man character following on from his stand alone installment via Homecoming. With so many stars being involved, it was always going to be an uphill battle for Marvel to keep these details under wraps and it appears as though the actors have been given the green light to admit to the press that yes, they are all in.
A Whose Who Of Names For Avengers 3
Attending the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Saldana explained to MTV News that she has scheduled to make an appearance in the blockbuster, but to what degree and in what capacity is yet to be confirmed to her directly.
"I don’t know when they’re going to let me read it," admitted the actress about the screenplay. "I’m not looking forward to the 5 hours of green make up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there."
Young Englishman Holland was given the tick of approval to appear in three installments over four years, outlining that both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans vouched for his capabilities to the studio. He will link up with Paul Rudd's Ant-Man and Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther for good measure.
"The producers wanted to be sure that I was the right person before entrusting three films over the next four years," said Holland. "Including Avengers: Infinity War."

Speaking with IGN, Saldana gave a glowing endorsement of the filmmakers as the crossover looks to dominate at the box office on May 4, 2018 with the enormous array of names.
"I'm curious to see how they are going to portray us," Saldana told the publication. "But the good thing that keeps me relaxed is that these directors (Anthony and Joe Russo) are good. They have a really good pedigree. Their last movie (Captain America: Civil War) was... I liked it. I liked their choices. And everyone that worked with them really had a great experience. And James Gunn is a producer on it, so I know he won't ever let the integrity of what he's created for the Guardians ever become compromised. So I'm at ease. Plus, I love Marvel producers; they're all great; they all want us to win."
