It's time we expand our Zoe Saldana pallet. What can we do with an Orange or Red Zoe? What heights can we reach with Yellow?

Is the world ready for Purple Saldana?


drgmaster909 t1_j5hgajb wrote

> Orange Zoe

Damn if only they'd cast her in Cats it would've been a billion dollar movie.


casualsubversive t1_j5hiwtt wrote

On the contrary! We must hone in on the shade producing the effect! It's time for a teal Zoe Saldana.

I also don't get this. Rami Malek is American, with Egyptian parents. He played Parsi-Indian descent British Freddie Mercury and he does not exactly resemble Mercury. He had two hours of daily make up including a prosthetic nose to play Mercury. I haven't seen any criticism of that- film got four Oscars and any news comments about the makeup is with praise about how they achieved the look. Why is Saldana's case different?


malkumecks t1_j5ixefy wrote

It’s ignorance. Rami caught a little flack from the online minority about why an American actor was picked to play Pharoah Ahkmenrah in Night at the Museum. Some people just want to complain for no reason.

These are good names for specialty mixed drinks. "I'd like one Purple Saldana please, and an Orange Zoe for the lady."

For those out of the loop, Zoe Saldana starred in Smurfs and Shrek.

Just guessing but she played someone in Avatar and was Gamora in avengers right

>someone in Avatar

Damn man she was one of the main characters, why you gotta do that to her


skankhunt402 t1_j5hok4k wrote

Avatar is so old I couldn't even tell you one characters name. I was just guessing cause I didnt know the name of the actor who played Gamora either


Nightingdale099 t1_j5hqq2f wrote

I bet you 10 money that the main character is Jake , and Ripley from Alien is not playing nor named Ripley in the movie.

Ooh nice, thanks! I imagine the visuals are stunning


brutexx t1_j5ht3e0 wrote

They definitely are. Some incredible sfx were put into it.


truejamo t1_j5i7dhc wrote

Really? I keep hearing it's not good at all.


brutexx t1_j5ia5jg wrote

It’s interesting what sort of opinions you can get out there, mainly on the internet. What I can say for sure is that I found it very pretty.

Also that according to some videos I saw on YouTube later, there was some real impressive things done for the sfx they achieved.

I liked the story too. Fairly straightforward yet still enjoyable throughout imo. I just, well, liked the film lol.


Sipredion t1_j5ia7v3 wrote

The first thing people bash in a movie they don't like these days is the vfx. They're often the same people falling for amateur blender fakes and shitty photoshop all over reddit and tiktok.

My point is most people don't actually know what good and bad vfx looks like, it's just a convenient way to hate on a movie.


RedCaio t1_j5im5nf wrote

I liked it more than the first one

Star Trek


skankhunt402 t1_j5hk88e wrote

I could be wrong but I dont think they had any multi billion dollar movies


hydriplex t1_j5hrh7i wrote

Oy, was a joke. She wasn't body painted in Star Trek, either.


SithDraven t1_j5hm047 wrote

Combined, the ST films have raked in over a billion. Still not bad.


skankhunt402 t1_j5horoa wrote

Yeah but it wasnt really what was being talked about. Is she in star trek? Which one


Erindil t1_j5i6oev wrote

That's because Zoe Saldana wasn't painted blue or green.


replaysMike t1_j5hzdua wrote

And Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy of course


wakka55 t1_j5i075n wrote

sir she is not blue in star trek


replaysMike t1_j5i485d wrote

Ok you got me there, but she was in it and should have been green or blue


nemplsman t1_j5i4jcw wrote

When you say she starred in Smurfs, are you saying she actually starred in Smurfs or in Avatar, which is essentially a Smurfs movie?


cookiemonster247 t1_j5hi2xn wrote

James Cameron has directed 50% of multi billion dollar movies


Font_Fetish t1_j5hwhu0 wrote

So you’re saying that a painted Zoe Saldana is 16% more important to a movie’s chances of hitting $2 billion than James Cameron’s involvement?


moeburn t1_j5i4p3i wrote

James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron.


bguzewicz t1_j5i9zf0 wrote

James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron IS… James Cameron.


Filidos t1_j5hafos wrote

So what you're saying is that we need her to play Mystique in a new X-Men movie...


LittleLisaCan t1_j5hi13s wrote

Or Ivy if she's doing DC


IAmTheAsteroid t1_j5htui5 wrote

Actually... I think she'd make a good Ivy


johntheflamer t1_j5hxv0y wrote

Genius. All DC needs to achieve the same level of film success as Marvel is to capitalize on the many shades of Zoe Saldana

Oh dang that’s a really good idea actually. She would make a great mystique


Tarzan_OIC t1_j5h6119 wrote

She's also somehow never been on the Forbes Top 100 paid actresses list. PAY THE WOMAN

Avatar doesn’t make this much because of the acting.


coldstar t1_j5ht6n7 wrote

Obviously it's the great screenwriting.


krectus t1_j5ha5go wrote

Pay the woman who paints her more.


KhaoticMess t1_j5hjbah wrote

Or save money by allowing me to paint her. I will work for free.


Ayjayz t1_j5hzj78 wrote

I think if she tries to hold out for more money they'll just go elsewhere.


No-Wonder1139 t1_j5hq11m wrote

On top of not painted in Pirates of the Carribean and star trek. She's been in a lot of billion dollar movies


fightingpillow t1_j5htder wrote

Star Trek really messed up by not casting her as her green roommate that Kirk slept with.


TheRiteGuy t1_j5ihyi2 wrote

Too bad she got picked up by Marvel. Sure not bad for her bank account. But I'd love to see her in more action movies like Colombiana.


balrus-balrogwalrus t1_j5hj6o5 wrote

We need red Zoe and Yellow Zoe. Uhura from Star Trek wears red but isn't ACTUALLY red so that counts as half a Technicolor Zoe maybe


lanternkeeper t1_j5hrh0a wrote

I suggested it elsewhere in this post so I'll just repeat it: Soranik Natu.

I smell a Billion dollar Simpsons Movie staring Zoe Saldana as Marge Simpson.


candygram4mongo t1_j5i0992 wrote

If I had a nickel for every multi-billion dollar film franchise that features an unusually-coloured Zoe Saldana, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but it's weird it happened twice.


Zapablast05 t1_j5i8u5y wrote

You forgot both of the last Avengers movies, where she was green.


aspdRobot t1_j5hu31e wrote

After looking up her imdb she's been in more than I, or probably you, realized. Pirates, Star Trek, My little freaking Pony(some weird white and green bird thing), and more. Also why looking why does it show Avatar 3 and 4, 2024 and 26, respectively???


sepseven t1_j5hxc6r wrote

What do you mean? Is she not in 3 and 4 or something?


aspdRobot t1_j5hxsjh wrote

No it shows thoes under her imdb, my beguilment was related to the fact that they are already planning two sequels not that she wasn't in them.


ericthepilot2000 t1_j5hyq40 wrote

I believe 3&4 were in the works from the get-go once 2 got greenlit. 2-3-4 were a package deal, one of the reasons why there's such a gap between 1 and 2


Thubbe42 t1_j5i2k3o wrote

Not sure about 4 but 3 has already finished shooting, so yeah


EvilBertMacklin t1_j5i0gg6 wrote

They filmed 2,3, and 4 at the same time. When 2 released, 3 was already finishing post production.

Real question- possible racism? Like, she's more marketable as anything other than black or Latino dominican?


SweetNeo85 t1_j5hv3u1 wrote

The blue or green of her skin never hid her blackness though. Just as Sam Worthington's never hid his whiteness. She's just a great actor that has been really lucky and happened to get hue-shifted a few times.


bigfatcarp93 t1_j5i1wit wrote

And genre movies tend to be the most profitable because scifi and fantasy have really good mass appeal ever since the eighties, so you're more likely to see technicolor characters in high-grossing films.


GamingDragon27 t1_j5hkt50 wrote

Yeah this was a meme like 3 years ago when Endgame came out (ex. 3/5 multi-billion dollar movies have Zoe Saldana in full body paint). Good work posting something original.

I have to clarify that I point this out because the odds of OP just re-hashing some meme or post (that would have came back to the front pages of Subs related to Marvel/Avatar due to the release of Avatar 2) is much higher than him coming up with the same thought on his own. Its scientifically proven internet users aren't original.


watchnickdie t1_j5hp8rl wrote

Right? They should know everything ever posted on the internet like the rest of us do. What a loser.


GamingDragon27 t1_j5hs669 wrote

I understand you're being sarcastic but its not that hard to understand that this is too specific a thought for some rando to come up with again on his own, especially when it was jerked around so frequently on Avatar/Marvel Subs back then, which is something OP likely would have seen given his interest in both subjects. Quit acting stupid. Or perhaps its not acting at all lmao.
