It's unknown how close James Gunn will keep the Guardians of the Galaxy movie with the source material from the comic books.
Michael Rooker's Yondu already appears to be going a different route, and Ronan seems more in line with the Ultimate Comics version as he's a lieutenant of some sort of Thanos.
Now Gamora may be going in a different direction as well, and it could be something that makes the character less unique.
In the comics, Gamora is found by Thanos after her race gets wiped out by the Badoon/Universal Church of Truth where she is raised as his adopted daughter becoming the most dangerous woman in the universe. Thanos teaches her all kinds of bad things including hand-to-hand combat and even augments her physical abilities with cybernetics.
However, speaking with the NYDailyNews, Zoe Saldana seems to downplay that there is anything special about the character offering that she is one amongst many of the same kind.
"Gamora doesn’t wake up every morning and go, ‘I’m super-fantastic!’ She just comes from a planet where everybody is green and strong,” Saldana said. “She’s just an everyday person there.”
The "Guardians of the Galaxy movie" has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glen Close as Nova Prime, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
