So we'll just get Uhura with green skin this time instead of blue! there must be other actresses out there that can do the job.

It may seem so but it is now common currency and the shorthand behind the meaning is generally understood making it quite convenient.

That said, I'd have understood it to refer to more of a TV arc thing where the real villain gradually emerges from mix of possible others, or is in the background during other adventures?

I always associate the term "big bad" with its use in Buffy whenever the new series villain shows up.

So, with the Joss Whedon Avengers connection it at least has some relevance in this article.

I think, although I may be wrong, that that is really where the term originated.

I didn't realise this was anything to do with Whedon - he normally hires better actresses.

A while back I suggested that Empire writers stop using the vile phrase 'meet cute', but did they listen...? No! 'Big Bad' is indeed a Joss Whedon phrase from Buffy, but as has already been remarked, it's come to mean the overall villain / antagonist in any sort of plot / story arc heavy genre series. (Example: Sauron is the Big Bad in LOTR, whereas Saruman is a secondary antagonist.)

Zoe Saldana is already becoming one of my favourite actresses working today, having been impress with her performances in both STAR TREK (really looking forward to INTO DARKNESS) and AVATAR (Yes, I like that film, despite it's flaws). If she gets the role, then Gamora will be two of the reasons I'll be excited about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (the other being Rocket Raccoon). This will be a big gamble for Marvel, a comic-book adaptation set in another galaxy focusing on a group of superheroes who are different compared to the likes of Iron Man, Hulk and others. But hopefully, James Gunn will make sure it doesn't become Marvel's folly.

no offence but why have marvel given gaurdians to james gunn who isnt exactly the best director. only 2 films only 1 of which (slither - super is ok) was decent and he gets a blockbuster?? same thing with cap america 2 not sure what marvel r thinking lately at least thor 2 got game of thrones guy behind the camera which makes some sense......go on comments people rip me a new 1 for not agreeing with the masses
