30 Actors Who Almost Starred In Marvel Movies

2. Olivia Wilde - Gamora

Olivia Wilde has been rather low-key as of late, opting to star in a string of modest indie films such as Her and Third Person. This is a far cry from the huge potential blockbusters the actress was headlining a few years ago, such as Tron: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens. Perhaps the fact that both of those aforementioned films didn't do particularly well at the box-office taught the actress a lesson. Whatever the case, Wilde doesn't seem to be in a rush to get back to blockbuster filmmaking. Before Zoe Saldana came on the scene she was offered the role of Gamora in Guardians Of The Galaxy, only to decline it. It's hard to imagine that her portrayal of the character would have been much different than Saldana's - surely she would have done an equally admirable job.
