Vin Diesel & James Gunn Confirm Guardians of the Galaxy Avengers Team-Up Talks; Cast Weighs In (Video)



While doing press for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Vin Diesel and James Gunn hint that a Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers team-up is a big possibility, even stating there have been talks. The rest of the cast weighs in on a Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers team-up as well. See the video below for more.

Vin Diesel:

Sure [I could see the two joining forces]. I think, Marvel will have a lot of options after this movie, and one of those options will be integrating teams. I think there's going to be huge fans of the Guardians, and there are huge fans of the Avengers, and I think the discussion has already been had. I think the audience may demand something like that.

Zoe Saldana:

It would be awesome for the Avengers to seek help - "professional"  help -  from the Guardians...

I would like for us to get along with Scarlett's character and for us to kick
major a--.

Dave Bautista:

I would like to see it strictly as a fan. It would be pretty cool, and I think you could take characters like that and all of a sudden push them into a new realm like outer space. It would be pretty interesting and make for a pretty interesting situation.

I think, and I think you'll find  this in agreement amongst geeks, is that Drax and Hulk would clash a bit [laughs]. There would probably be some blows thrown. Drax [would win]. Easily. Oh, [Hulk will] come back, but he's just going to come back for more punishment [laughs].


James Gunn:

We've talked about all sorts of possibilities. I kind of know where the basic plan is. It could always change at any minute. That could or could not include a couple Avengers and a couple Guardians meeting up or all the Avengers and all the Guardians. We do inhabit the same universe and they are pretty big personalities that are likely to at some point or another run into each other.

Oh, I do not think that the Avengers would get along very well with the Guardians. I mean like the Guardians are a bunch of jerks. The Avengers, for all their problems, they are all pretty much do-gooders, and our guys are not do-gooders. When it comes to saving a planet, they'll do it. When it comes to being nice regular guys or not stealing your stuff, I'm not sure that they are quite up for that. 

Karen Gillan:

Sure. Why not. I think there would be a lot of personality clashes. I think that would be the beauty of it. No. I don't think [Nebula would get along with Scarlet Witch]. Maybe that would be fun. Maybe Nebula would just try to beat her to the ground.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" has an August 1, 2014 release.
