Superhero movies are the most popular genre in the cinema these days, but that doesn't mean there aren't still people who write the movies off as mindless entertainment. Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy knows that she makes movies that others view as "selling out," but she knows what she does has the ability to inspire kids, and she clearly takes that responsibility seriously. She really has an issue with people who don't respect that. According to Saldana...
Zoe Saldana has been involved in numerous massive box-office franchises. In addition to the Marvel films she's also part of the Star Trek and Avatar franchises, so she knows what she's talking about. While her work in these movies has made her incredibly popular, she says there are still those who look down on the sorts of movies that she makes, though clearly, it doesn't bother her too much, she sees the way her movies inspire people to be more than worthy.
There has always been something of a separation between the sorts of movies that tend to win awards and the ones that tend to make a lot of money. The two classes of cinema rarely cross paths in any meaningful way and it seems that there are still people who view the blockbusters as a lesser form of art. Zoe Saldana tells Net-A-Porter that those people should reconsider their position because superhero movies are important to many people, especially the young.
Superhero movies might be considered mainstream now, but the material has always attracted those who didn't quite feel like they fit a certain mold. Zoe Saldana thinks that inspiring kids is worthwhile, and the fact that aliens and superheroes is what inspires them isn't important.
