Elizabeth Banks, known for The Hunger Games films, was sort of close to playing Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Banks spoke with MTV and stated she wanted to play the most dangerous woman in the universe.

She says the movie was very entertaining and even stated Chris Pratt is the next Harrison Ford.

When questioned if it would have been awkward to ask James Gunn for a role, as they are such good friends, she completely dismissed that notion as Banks wanted to play the lead, Gamora.

“I wanted to play Gamora and then he didn’t want to cast me. And I totally get it, because Zoë [Saldana] is great!” Banks offered. "[James Gunn wanted to go] in a different direction."

Elizabeth Banks did state she would still like a role and to "tell everybody."

See the video below for more.

Any ideas who she could play in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel? How about Ikon from the Annihilators?
