Easily one of 2010’s most-anticipated new comic book properties to receive the big-screen treatment, “The Losers” is currently filming in Puerto Rico. And just in case you questioned the film’s ability to live up to the brutal action that defined its source material, actress Zoe Saldana—who plays the hard-luck team’s resident loose cannon, Aisha—has some bruises to show you.
“I don’t even know why I’m wearing a skirt, I’m full of black-and-blues,” Saldana told MTV News during a press event for her role in James Cameron’s upcoming science-fiction feature “Avatar.”
While we recently got a peek at the “Losers” set (and Saldana on it), we have yet to see what each of the cast members will look like as their comics counterparts. “Watchmen” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan will play the team’s leader, Clay, while Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”), Idris Elba, Columbus Short and Óscar Jaenada round out the left-for-dead covert ops squad.
“She’s just lethal… completely lethal,” said Saldana of her character, a tough-as-nails wildcard on the team who tends to leave a trail of dead bodies in her wake.
“Mr. Cameron and J.J. [Abrams] created a little monster, there’s no such thing as me playing a weak role for a woman,” said Saldana. “I’m addicted.”
