Zoe Saldana seems to be a guarantee of huge success in Hollywood. She has a starring role in Avatar as Neytiri and plays Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Thanks to her participation in three of the five highest-grossing films in history, she is the second highest-grossing actress in history. Combined, the films in which she has starred have grossed more than $11 billion.
But it was Avatar that changed everything for the actress. Her starring role and the fact that the film became, for ten years, the highest grossing film in history has been decisive.
In 2019 Avengers: Endgame finally overtook Avatar at the box office, but thanks to a re-release in China, the latter returned to the throne, although it may only be temporarily, provided Marvel decides to do the same.
Zoe Saldana is also the only actress to have starred in two films that have broken the $2 billion box office record. The actress knows how important this is and has posted on social media about it.

Saldana will continue to be active in both franchises. She will reprise her role as Neytiri in all Avatar sequels and will appear as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. We assume she will be in more Marvel Cinematic Universe films, as the character became important in the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Avatar 2 will be released on December 16, 2022, but it will be one of four sequels the film will have, which James Cameron is working on and Zaldana aims to be in all of them. She has certainly made the right choice of film projects to be involved in.
