Don’t let the smile fool you: Here’s what Zoe Saldana looks like as a complete bad ass. Because that’s what she’s playing in The Losers, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the Vertigo comic book series — written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Jock — which follows a band of disavowed intelligence operatives trying to claw their way back into the world, by any means necessary. And some of those means involve massive amounts of property damage.

Due in theaters in April of 2010, The Losers finds the once-and-future Uhura taking on the role of Aisha, a mysterious South American hellion who joins forces with Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Roque (Idris Elba), Pooch (Columbus Short), Jensen (Chris Evans), and Cougar (Oscar Jaenada) to take down the man responsible for their collective misfortunes, Max (Jason Patric). According to Diggle, “Aisha has to be deadly and desirable in equal measure, and Zoe embodies both qualities in spades. Trust me, you’ve never seen her kick ass the way she does in The Losers!”
