With the Guardians of the Galaxy looking to lend a hand in The Avengers: Infinity War, it's learned James Gunn will be keeping a close eye on his Guardians.

IGN caught up with Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora, in which she lets it be known James Gunn is on board The Avengers: Infinity War as a producer.

"I'm curious how they are going to portray us. The good thing that keeps me relaxed is that these directors [Joe and Anthony Russo] are good. They have a really good pedigree. [I liked] their last movie. I liked their choices, and everybody that worked for them really had a great experience, and James Gunn is a producer on [The Avengers: Infinity War] so I know that he won't ever let the integrity of what he's created for the Guardians ever be compromised. So I'm at ease. Plus, I love all the Marvel producers. They are all great. They all want us to win."  

Saldana also jokes that since the Guardians are cosmic and the Avengers are earth-bound characters, that they have made a "lot of jokes toward the Avengers."

"Those earthlings, but..." Saldana joked. "We are going to do it as a favor to Thor [laughter]." 

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hits May 5th.
