We all know Guardians of the Galaxy's Gamora as a rather fetching shade of green, but believe it or not, the deadliest woman in the galaxy was almost purple.

Revealing his initial drawings of Zoe Saldana's character over on Instagram, Marvel concept artist Andy Park shared one of his earlier designs for Gamora – and, quite frankly, she looks great.

"This was early days on the first #GuardiansoftheGalaxy so we played with the idea of giving her a different skin color. I had fun with this one," he wrote.

Purple or green, we don't really care – as long as we get the spin-off that both Zoe and Karen Gillan (Nebula) have basically promised us.

The step-sisters' love-hate relationship has been somewhat of a defining feature of the Guardians films so far, so we reckon there's definitely potential for a solo – or duo – movie.

Chatting to Digital Spy about the possibility of a Gamora-Nebula spin-off at Monday's (April 24) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 premiere, Karen Gillan admitted she'd "love" to see it happen.

"I'm waiting for this [spinoff] because obviously this needs to happen," she enthused. "I think it would be amazing to see a female-driven film like that.

"We have Captain Marvel coming up, which is quite exciting. We could do with some more females at the forefront."

Praising "girl power all the way" Zoe joked that she would love it if it was only her and Karen on set: "If I was the boss, only Karen and I would be here with Mantis."

You can catch a very green Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 when it opens in the UK on April 28, and in the US on May 5.
