Marvel Studios is famous for its confidentiality agreements, even some of the biggest names involved in their films are famous for not revealing anything about the movies they’re in until they’ve scored a release.
Then there’s Vin Diesel, an actor with a social media following so enormous that frankly he doesn’t care. Diesel does the voice of Groot in James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and in a new post today has seemingly confirmed something widely suspected all along – that Star-Lord and the gang will all be in the next Avengers film.
“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 question now becomes how the Guardians will become involved as neither Thanos nor any of the other Infinity Stones will appear in next year’s ‘Guardians’ sequel. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 4th 2018.
