Vin Diesel Says Rocket & Groot Movie Possible; Teases Battle With Hulk

With the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer being the most viewed Marvel trailer and second of all time, Disney has to be thinking of expanding the franchise with other spinoff movies. 

Screen Junkies caught up with Vin Diesel recently, and Vin Diesel thinks a Rocket Racoon and Groot movie is a possibility.

"I think if it’s up to James Gunn, you are going to see a Groot and Rocket movie after Infinity War. I think that’s highly possible. We shall see," Vin Diesel said. 

As Rocket and Groot are supposed to show up in Avengers: Infinity War, which means they will likely meet up with the Avengers at some point, Vin Diesel thinks a Groot vs Hulk battle is a given (which also probably means Baby Groot grows up).  

"I know that, somewhere in the universe, you are going to see Groot and Hulk battle. You can write it somewhere. You are going to see that poster: Hulk vs. Groot," Vin Diesel said.

With the Hulk going cosmic in Thor: Ragnarok, maybe we'll get to see Hulk vs Groot sooner than Infinity War

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" has a May 5, 2017 release starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.


Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" continues the team's adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.
