It seems Zoe Saldana, known in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Gamora, needs to take some secret-keeping lessons from a few of her Spider-Man counterparts. Seriously, did she live under a rock during the months of found spoilers leading up to No Way Home’s theatrical debut? The 43-year-old-actress came under heat with the powers that be at Marvel Studios just minutes after she shared a video to social media that possibly could have shared all the secrets to the upcoming third (and likely last) installment in the trilogy Guardians of the Galaxy series. 

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Zoe Saldana shared a video of herself on the set of the upcoming Marvel film. While the celebrity is often seen posting full-makeup selfies and videos in her Gamora get-up recently as filming is underway for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, it appears Saldana shared something Marvel execs deemed “too revealing” for details surrounding the under-wraps film. After taking the original video down, the edited video’s caption read, “Had to take this down before because of Marvel Security. Now that I covered what they don’t want you to see, let’s just focus on the Mate!!!!!  #mate #gamora #bebe. With the edited video, Saldana covered the pictured binder so as not to reveal the hidden treasure surely within. 

While we’re most impressed with the meticulous team that likely works around the clock to meticulously stalk every MCU actor’s social accounts ( seriously, how did they find that so fast?), were more concerned with what pertinent information the notebook could hold. If Marvel demanded Zoe Saldana to deletes the original video, surely this means it contained spoilers to the upcoming film. Unfortunately for Marvel, fans of the beloved franchise have proven time and time again to be experienced and detailed in scouring the internet and social media platforms for even the little giveaways on spoilers for upcoming projects. But even more unfortunate for those hoping to get a glimpse of information surrounding the third installment for the Guardians of the Galaxy, some users were still able to decipher what was in the binder. As it happens, the binder didn’t appear to reveal any pertinent information regarding the film. Instead, it appears the pages were filled with a series of dates and filming blocks-and was likely just a schedule keeper for the actress.

Filming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 commenced in late November. With the entire crew back again, the film is once again helmed by James Gunn and will welcome back stars of the series Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff. As Michael Rooker’s character Yondu was emotionally killed off at the end of the previous film, fans will see returning star Sean Gunn, as Yondu’s former second-in-command now in control of the infamous “fin” Yondu used to control his Yaka arrow. Similarly, the upcoming film will introduce newcomer Will Poulter to the MCU. Playing Adam Warlock, Poulter will play the film’s main protagonist role as an artificial being created by the Sovereign race of aliens first seen in the second film of the series. Chukwudi Iwuji of DCEU’s Peacemaker series has also joined the cast for an undisclosed role he described as being powerful and complex.

Considering how cautious Marvel was over keeping spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home tightly sealed, the slap on the wrist to Zoe Saldana doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. With the film’s release date well over a year from release, Marvel hasn’t even officially released a synapse for the film yet. However, as all signs point to the upcoming film being the last of the revered rag-tag crew, the movie will surely get the same spoiler treatment that Spider-Man: No Way Home received.
