Looks like our favorite Guardians of the Galaxy are closing ranks with The Avengers. This we know when Vin Diesel, who voices Groot, let slip the presence of the team in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, during his Facebook live stream last Friday.
?Now, the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War?and that’s incredibly exciting,? Guardians‘ Diesel told fans in a Facebook?live stream?on Friday. “You were told before everybody.”
Vin Diesel held a segment called ?Open the Box?, wherein he opened a box which had a trophy inside. The F trophy was awarded by Facebook to Vin Diesel for having 100M followers.
The Guardians of the Galaxy debuted to great acclaim and great box office scores in 2014. The film involved a group of intergalactic criminals who are forced to work together before a fanatical villain takes over the universe. The group consists of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot. Coming together as a group was a challenge at first, as each were criminals with their own agenda, but in the end they joined forces to stop a mayhem of great proportions from happening.
Planet with a face
The first franchise may have focused on the Power Stone/Gem, but Peter Quill?s second adventure ?will focus on a different track. Thanos? least favorite daughter, Nebula (Karen Gillan) will be returning to the movie, and according to her onscreen sister, Zaldana, she?ll be even more resentful and bitter than before.
Director James Gunn confirms rumors that Kurt Russell will be in the movie. According to Digital Spy, he will play literally an intelligent planet with a face, a beard and big dreams of conquest. Also, he is Star-Lord?s father. How a planet with a face could ever impregnate anyone, let alone Mama Quill, is kind of hard to imagine. Guess we?ll just have to see it on the big screen.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently in post-production. It has plenty of time before it opens on the summer of 2017 with a projected May release date.
In the meantime, Marvel has decided to retitle The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. Set for a 2019 release, the movie is at the moment only known as The Avengers 4.
