One of the biggest question fans were left with at the end of Avengers: Endgame was: what happened to Gamora?

The Guardian of the Galaxy hero was killed by Thanos during Avengers: Infinity War in order for him to obtain the Soul Stone but a past version of her from 2014 played a significant role in the sequel.

Thanks to Nebula, Gamora switched allegiances before the climactic battle against Thanos’ army but after Iron Man snapped the Titan and his legions to dust her whereabouts were unknown.

"The argument could be that Tony [Stark] wished away all the evil, the enemy, so is she still alive?" said Anthony Russo told Fox 5 DC.

"Who knows? That’s a story for another time."

Joe Russo added: "If Tony in fact wanted to eliminate Thanos and his army, was Gamora at that moment still part of that army?"

It’s likely she wasn’t part of the army at that point but made a swift exit once her dad was defeated as Zoe Saldana is expected to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The actor has said she would like to return as “bad” Gamora during a panel at Ace Comic Con.

“The technical answer is it all depends on what Marvel and James Gunn desire to do with the Guardians and with Gamora's fate,” she said. “I would eventually, there's a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians but there's also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora.

“I've never seen that and she's, you know, she's considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy so I would want to see what that wrath looks like also because it would just give me layers to sort of work on.”

James Gunn was rehired this year as the director of the third Guardians movie and the story may well involve Thor as he boarded Rocket’s ship at the end of Endgame after making Valkyrie leader of New Asgard.
