Vin Diesel Teases Voice Recording Groot For Guardians of the Galaxy


Vin Diesel updated his Facebook page with the following image, which shows a picture of Groot as well as the actor in the sound booth.

Marvel Studios has yet to officially confirm Groot for Guardians of the Galaxy, but the actor did in a recent interview stating his daughter pointed at a picture of Groot concept art that Marvel provided, and from that point forward Vin Diesel was Groot.

The same interview had Vin Diesel also mention he is in talks for another Marvel Studios franchise in 2016. Maybe Black Bolt of the Inhumans?

We are guessing the following image may be from when Diesel did Iron Giant with some added photoshop effects for Groot. Seems strange Marvel hasn't officially announced Vin Diesel as Groot. Perhaps they are waiting until the movie's release with a dual announcement about the other character for 2016.


The "Guardians of the Galaxy movie" has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glen Close as Nova Prime, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
