Vin Diesel, who voices Groot, has confirmed that the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in the next Avengers movie…
The Avengers will face a threat so sinister in their next film that they’ll need help from a completely different team of superheroes: the Guardians of the Galaxy. According to actor Vin Diesel, who voices Groot in the Guardians films, “the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War.”
Diesel revealed the news in a Facebook livestream, where he said how “surreal” and “incredibly exciting” it was to join Marvel’s flagship film franchise:
Next year you’ve got Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 coming and that whole concept started from you all saying ‘when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?’ And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back – some of you can look up that picture…there was this old Avengers copy that was behind me in that picture if you look back on my Facebook page you can find that.
What’s gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War and that’s incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody.
The picture in question is below:
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is out in theaters on May 5, 2017. Avengers: Infinity War will follow on May 4, 2018.
