Vin Diesel Groot Movie Is Being Talked About
While promoting his latest movie, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Vin Diesel lets it be known he would love to do a Groot Guardians of the Galaxy spinoff movie and thinks it will eventually happen.
"It's something that James Gunn has talked about, and something that I know he'd love to do," Vin Diesel told MTV. "Sure, I think it could be very interesting. I think it's inevitable, I think that character is so enigmatic, and he was already one of the most unique characters in the Marvel Universe, and I think what Marvel has done, primarily what James Gunn has done, to realize that character has exceeded beyond anyone's expectations.
"I think he's such an interesting character, and there's so much to learn about him. I'd love to go back to his planet and learn more about him. I think the world would," Vin Diesel continued. "He's really a genius on a lot of levels and just we can only hear him say 'I Am Groot' because of our sophistication level, not his."
With talk of a Groot movie, as Vin Disel notes, it would be pretty hard for us mere Earthlings to understand Groot, so perhaps the spinoff would actually be a Rocket Raccoon and Groot movie?
Vin Diesel returns as Groot for Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
